Legacy Events

Our Change the Future events are a great way to find out more about how gifts in wills make a difference to children in the UK and all around the world.

Around 13% of our income comes from donations that supporters like you have left in their wills, making a lasting commitment to children.

Each event highlights a different area of Save the Children’s work and offers an opportunity to hear from our incredible Humanitarian and UK Programmes staff, as well as volunteers who have visited our programmes in person. 

These one-hour Change the Future events are free to attend and currently held via Zoom due to coronavirus. We hope our series of two-hour live events will return to venues around the UK later in 2021.

Spotlight on Will Aid

Wednesday 18th August 2021, 8-9am / 6-7pm

Every November, hundreds of solicitors around the country volunteer their time and expertise to write clients’ wills in return for a suggested donation. Funds are then split between nine benefiting charities, of which Save the Children is one. All solicitors – whether already Will Aid participants or not - are invited to find out how this special will writing campaign transforms children's lives for the better, both in the UK and around the world.
