Legacy giving is one of the oldest forms of Philanthropy. Most of Walton on Thames Charity’s income is from legacies dating back centuries. The Charity’s alms-houses are named after the benefactors who left the legacy to build and run them. A legacy can provide help to individuals for many years, many of the legacies left to Walton on Thames Charity date back to the 17th Century and the impact of them is still felt today.
This year Walton on Thames Charity celebrates 800 years of serving the local community. This work has only been possible through the generosity of the legacies left to the Charity over this time.
All gifts received by Walton on Thames Charity are gratefully received. Every donor becomes part of the rich heritage associated with such an ancient charity, but importantly donors are the future of the Charity and their good work can continue for many years.
Walton Charity celebrated 800 years of serving the Ancient Parish of Walton which includes Hersham and Oatlands, in 2011.
Some of our Benefactors such as Mr. Fenner and Mr. Sherwood are remembered 100’s of years after their lives amongst us as generous patrons of charity towards the community.
So if you want to make a social impact on the local community and be remembered as a fine upstanding member of society - then please make a legacy or donation today - and we at Walton Charity will use our best efforts to make sure you are remembered in 800 years time.
