Have you thought about leaving a gift in your will to London Scottish Golf Club? Doing so would not only help our historic club secure its future, but would be a nice way to provide a lasting mark of your connection with us.
Your legacy could be left in several different forms, for example:
• Residuary legacy: part of your estate remaining after family and friends have been looked after
• Pecuniary legacy: a lump sum of money
• Specific items: property, jewellery, antiques, or shares.
If you have already made a will, then you can either re-write it to include a gift to London Scottish Golf Club, or, more simply, you can create a ‘codicil’ that will add your wishes to the existing document. Because we are constituted as a Community Amateur Sports Club, there should be no inheritance tax liabilities on any bequests made to the club.
We recommend consulting a solicitor or will advisor to ensure that all the legal formalities are correctly followed. But if you would like to talk about the ins and outs of leaving something to the club, then please feel free to contact Steve Barr in complete confidence.
If you do decide to make a bequest to the club, it would help us considerably if you could inform us that you are doing so. There is no need to specify the amount that will be given; simply that a gift will be made. This indication to the club will not be legally binding, and of course you may change your mind at any time with or without letting the club know. It simply indicates your current intentions.
