Leave a Legacy

Why leave a gift?

Leaving a gift in your Will to South West Equine Protection will help us to provide continued care and refuge to these poorly treated ponies, both to the ones already in our care and to those we have sadly yet to meet. It will also help us to educate the future generations about responsible ownership of these beautiful and kind-natured animals.

No matter how small, your contribution will really make a difference and you can be assured that we’ll make every penny count. Any money left to a charity is also free from Inheritance Tax, which means that a gift in a Will not only helps a wonderful cause but could also reduce inheritance tax payable on an estate.

Start planning ahead today and make sure that you secure yourself and your family’s future by accepting Portcullis’s FREE WILL service and show your support by considering to leave a gift in your will to South West Equine Protection. All donations are completely voluntary and every little helps; take Portcullis up on this generous offer and leave a legacy to help South West Equine Protection maintain their hard work towards ensuring the continued welfare of these beautiful ponies, without which the moors would be a very different place!

Already have a will?

If you have already made your Will it is easy to add a bequest to our charity by way of a Codicil.

If you would like to speak to a member of the SWEP team about the process of leaving a legacy for the future of SWEP, please call 01822 854823 and ask for the Charity Manager or email:

Don't have a will yet?

Making a Will is an extremely important document to complete in your lifetime in order to ensure your families well-being when you are no longer here. South West Equine Protection understands the importance of will-making and therefore have partnered up with Portcullis Legals to offer supporters a free Will-writing service.

Portcullis Legals have decided to offer a free Will to any supporter that expresses their support to South West Equine Protection. This very special offer applies to relatively straightforward Will(s) only, but should you have more complex matters to discuss with us such as, you wish to exclude someone, have children from previous relationships or you have business assets, they will of course be happy to provide any additional costs to you that are also fixed and fair.

Please contact for further information on 01752 401401 and be sure to quote South West Equine at the time you call.

Types of legacy

There are different types of legacy, it is important to choose the one which is right for you.

  • A Specific Legacy
    This legacy consists of a specific item of personal property.
  • A Pecuniary Legacy
    Is a legacy which states a specific sum of money.
  • A Residuary Bequest
    This is a slightly different legacy, as it is either a share of your estate or the residue of your estate after any debts have been settled and any other legacies have been paid...This legacy is usually good for a charity as it increases in line with inflation.

Now is your chance to help make sure no pony is left to die.
