Nurture nature forever with a gift in your Will

When you leave a gift in your Will to Essex Wildlife Trust, you’ll be ensuring your love of nature lives on for future generations. Your gift, no matter what the size, will enable us to restore nature across our beautiful county and inspire one in four people to take action for wildlife.

As a charity, we rely on gifts in Wills to continue our work tackling environmental challenges in Essex, where we feel the pressures acutely.
