Talking to your solicitor

When you have remembered your family and friends in your Will, you might want to leave the residue of your estate, or a percentage of it, to Amgueddfa Cymru — National Museum Wales. Your solicitor might find it useful to have the following wording to enable this:

I give to the National Museum of Wales, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NP, Registered Charity Number 525774, either:
a) a portion (please specify) of the residue of my estate for its general purposes, or,
b) the sum of £......... for its general purposes.

If you own an item of national importance, you might want to leave it to the Museum as a direct bequest or to the Government in lieu of tax. Please check with the Development Department when you draw up your Will that we are able to accept your bequest.

If you would like any further information on leaving a gift in your will, please contact Caroline Hurley, on (029) 2057 3145, or by email.
