Support the Trust by Making a Donation
and Make a Difference for Young People
The Trust depends entirely on donations, and because of generous help with administrative costs, almost the entire income can be given directly to those in need. That is why your help can be so effective.
Financial support from you would be greatly welcomed. This can either be by annual standing order, or one-off donation. In either case UK taxpayers can increase the amount which the Trust will receive by making a Gift Aid Declaration.
The ways to donate
Annual Standing Order
To make an annual donation, please complete the Standing Order Mandate and send it, with a completed Gift Aid Declaration (if you are a UK tax payer) to:
Sir Andrew Martin Trust Administrator
Walkers Charnwood Bakery
200 Madeline Road
Leicester LE4 1EX

To make a donation, please send a cheque payable to The Sir Andrew Martin Trust for Young People, together with a completed Gift Aid Declaration (if you are a UK tax payer) to the address shown above.
allows the Trust to claim tax back from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs on all your donations if you are a UK tax payer. This means every pound donated could currently be worth an extra 25p, and it doesn't cost you a penny!

Supporting the Trust in Your Will
May we suggest that you consider leaving a legacy to support the Trust in your will to provide young people with a brighter future.
Drafting a Will is not a task most people welcome, but we are advised to leave our affairs in order and to keep our Will under review. The decisions that have to be made are very personal and very difficult, but many people wish, if they are able, to make some provision for charitable work.
The Sir Andrew Martin Trust for Young People helps the disadvantaged, assists personal effort in sports and the arts, helps young people getting started in work or a profession, those doing voluntary work overseas, or helps voluntary organisations engaged in youth work.
We are a small specialised charity, where every application is carefully considered by the Board of Trustees. You may be assured that any gift you make will be used wisely and targeted to make a real difference to the life of a young person, or be directed to an organisation or group which has demonstrated a real need of help in their work with young people.
How you may consider supporting the Trust in your Will...
You can either provide for:
a Pecuniary Legacy
a specific gift of money for an amount that you specify. However, such a sum would devalue over the years due to inflation;
a Residual Legacy
a percentage shrare of your estate, calculated after debts and payments have been settled.
For when you are discussing a possible legacy to the Trust, the following clause for your Will may be helpful:
I bequeath to the Sir Andrew Martin Trust for Young People (Charity Number 1042358) the sum of £.............
I bequeath to the Sir Andrew Martin Trust for Young People (Charity Number 1042358).............% of the residue of my estate.
