To leave a gift in your will, contact your solicitor quoting the Youth Sport Trust’s name and our charity number (1086915) and how much you would like to leave us. Legacy gifts don’t have to be huge to have a significant impact on our work and our beneficiaries. Even leaving as little as 1% of your estate to the Youth Sport Trust could have an incredible impact.
