Leave a legacy

It’s thanks to the hard work and generosity of previous generations that we’re able to enjoy the wonderful church buildings around Gloucestershire. Leaving a legacy to GHCT will help that work continue so that future generations can enjoy them too.
To leave a legacy, you need to update your will with clear instructions. We suggest contacting your solicitor, who will also be able to advise you about the tax advantages of leaving a charitable legacy, which could reduce your Inheritance Tax liability.

Our major fundraising event each year is Ride & Stride – a national sponsored event that takes place on the second Saturday in September.

We have a network of local organisers – to find your nearest one, email rideandstride@ghct.org.uk and if you’re interested in helping out please let us know. It’s an ideal voluntary project for those completing their Duke of Edinburgh award or anyone looking to get more involved in their community.
