Bees Abroad is one of over 200 charities taking part in Remember A Charity Week around the UK. Bees Abroad is urging their supporters to pass on something wonderful by leaving a gift in their Will, after they’ve taken care of friends and family. The amazing work of Bees Abroad has been made possible by the generosity of their supporters over the last 21 years.
Bees Abroad are a global community of volunteers, who are working to relieve poverty through Beekeeping. They work with partners to deliver projects that enable participants to enhance their livelihoods and improve their quality of life. Bees Abroad exclusively use locally sourced materials to make essential beekeeping equipment, including hives and protective clothing. Beekeeping generates income without destroying habitat, it encourages forest protection, uses poor land, and maintains biodiversity. Beekeeping is a sustainable and ecologically friendly way to change the lives of the world's most disadvantaged people.
Remember A Charity Week will see the launch of a heart-warming campaign inspired by 1970s favourites, The Wombles. The animated film shines a light on the importance of charities work, inspiring people to consider including their favourite charity in their Will. UK charities will also be spreading the word on the importance of gifts in Wills across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter throughout #RememberACharityWeek.
Hania Gudiens, Bees Abroad Trustee said: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s Remember A Charity Week, encouraging our supporters to pass on something wonderful to the next generation. Gifts in Wills will be crucial to our charity’s work – both now and long into the future. Gifts left in Will could help future generations have a sustainable livelihood and income through beekeeping, for years to come”.
Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, added: “Remember A Charity Week has grown year-on-year and I’m immensely proud that the 200-strong consortium is coming together to celebrate in these challenging times. This week offers a fantastic opportunity for charities to inspire their supporters to consider a cause they care deeply about in their Will and raise awareness of how this contributes to their vital work. Without this income, many charities simply would not exist and others would be forced to cut the crucial services so many of us rely on.”
