Changing your Will to leave a lasting legacy will help us to continue giving young people a sporting chance.
Why Leave a Legacy to the Lord’s Taverners SA?
A Good Cause
Your gift no matter how big or small will be used to enhance the prospects of young people, who by no fault of their own are disadvantaged or disabled, by engaging them in sport and recreation. The Lord’s Taverners SA help young people to achieve this by providing much needed and very often specialised transport plus the funding and delivery of disabled sports programs such as Table Cricket.
The Lord’s Taverners SA hold several national fundraising events every year in which auctions are a key part of raising money for the charity. We are always looking for new prizes to supplement our auctions as our events calendar is becoming increasingly busy.

Writing Your Will
Writing your Will may seem like a daunting and expensive process however it is a lot easier than you think. Before making your Will you should consider the following:
- What your estate is- put down a list of everything you own i.e. your “assets” and all the debts that you owe.
- Who you will leave it to- your loved ones will always be your priority but The Lord’s Taverners SA would be grateful for a gift large or small to be able to give young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance.
- Who will write your Will- we recommend that your Will would be best written by a solicitor or Will writing professional who will know what information and language is required to make sure your wishes are legal.
- Who will carry out your wishes- your executor is responsible for carrying out your wishes and so the most people chose family or close friends.
Why a Will is Important
If you have not written a Will before you pass away it is called ‘dying intestate’ where you will have absolutely no control over who your assets are assigned to. By writing a Will you are ensuring that your closest friends, family and charitable causes closest to you receive the parts of the estate that you would like them to.
