The Legacy

Joan Williams and her late husband Lyn were teachers.

They had heard about our One Degree More programme, which helps people from disadvantaged backgrounds realise their dream of going to university. Joan wanted to leave something in her estate that was close to both their hearts.  With our help Joan instructed her solicitors to create a gift in her will.  Joan passed away in 2016 but her gift will support many young people over the coming years.  We believe this would make Joan very happy.

"My gift is dedicated to the memory of my late husband Lyn.  I know the Community Foundation will put it to very good use helping those in need of support to acheive more."
