Put a gift in your will. All young people need someone who cares behind them, to help them make a go of the world. But some teenagers lack this. With a gift in your will, you can step in behind a young person who needs it.

You don't have to be rich

Not at all. £310 would be enough to send one young person on a voyage on our tall ship which will change their life as they learn to crew with a team, and sit on deck watching dolphins passing. £3,100 could cover a voyage for 10 teenagers, who may have never been to sea before. Each legacy makes a difference.
