In Memoriam donations
Making a donation in memory of a loved one will help ensure a lasting legacy: conserving birds of prey and their habitats to be enjoyed and experienced by future generations.
Your donation could be a contribution to our general work or to a specific programme or project, such as our Bird of Prey Hospital, Raptor Nest Box Project, International Vulture Programme or our wildflower meadow, for example.
For more information or assistance please contact Louise Cox, Marketing and Communications Manager, on 01264 773850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, please send your donation to: Dept IMD, Hawk Conservancy Trust, Visitor Centre, Sarson Lane, Weyhill, Andover, SP11 8DY.
It is important to have an up to date will, and leaving a Gift to the Trust in your will is a valuable way to help birds of prey. Your support helps us to continue our vital work to conserve bird of prey species around the world, and to further our habitat and raptor conservation research, and to provide awareness and education programmes to the general public.
If you need to make a will the first step is to talk to a solicitor who specialises in Wills & Probate. This will ensure that your will is legally correct and that all your wishes will be carried out as you requested.
Remember there are several types of legacy:
- Residual – you may choose to leave whatever is left over once all your other legacies have been made and all costs met. This is the residue of your estate.
- Specific – this is when you choose to leave a specific item such as a painting, books, jewellery, an area of land or even your home.
- Pecuniary – this is when you leave a specific sum of money to a person, organisation or charity. Please remember that inflation may impact on the value of this legacy.
If you want to leave a donation in your Will to help the work of the Trust, your solicitor will need to know the following details:
Charity Name: The Hawk Conservancy Trust
Registered Charity Number: 1092349
Address: Visitor Centre, Sarson Lane, Weyhill, Andover, Hampshire, SP11 8DY
What donation you want to leave: e.g. a share of your estate or a set sum

On 24 April 2016, Gary will be running the London Marathon. His target for this event is a whopping £5000, which will be put toward conservation and research projects at the Trust.
Although Gary is very active he has NO running experience, so this will be quite a challenge for him. Gary's training regime kicked off in July and is going well. We're all getting behind Gary with this and hope that you will support him too! Watch our Facebook page for updates on how Gary's training and fundraising is going.
If you would like to support Gary, please visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/GaryBenton.
Stop press: Gary completed the run in 4:30:05 and exceeded his target for donations
