Bequests

You can make a difference by including a bequest in your will to Chelmsford Community Transport. This will help us continue the vital links for those who are elderly or mobility impaired to access social activites which otherwise might be denied to them and enjoy an independent life.

If you are considering this course of action, you should consult your solicitor to update your existing will and ensure that the relevant clause below is inserted.

Residuary Bequest (a proportion)
“I give (x %) of the residue of my real and personal estate which I can dispose of by Will in any manner I think proper to Chelmsford Community Transport, Company No: 3726024, Registered Charity No:1075724, and the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of Chelmsford Community Transport shall be a complete discharge to my Executors.”

Pecuniary Bequest (a set sum)
“I give the sum of ……….. pounds to Chelmsford Community Transport, Company No: 3726024, Registered Charity No:1075724 and the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of Chelmsford Community Transport shall be a complete discharge to my Executors.”

It is important to ensure that the following clause is also inserted in your will, whichever paragraph above that you have chosen to use:
“If at my death any charity named as a beneficiary in this Will or any Codicil hereto has changed its name or amalgamated with or transferred its assets to another body then my executors shall give effect to any gift made to such charity as if it had been made (in the first case) to the body in its changed name or (in the second place) to the body which results from such amalgamation or to which such transfer has been made.”
