How gifts in Wills helped protect Trevose Head

Trevose Head from the west

Thanks to the generosity of supporters leaving gifts in their Wills, we could buy and protect Trevose Head for ever. These generous legacies look after the places you love for ever, thank you.

Mr and Mrs Harris from Maidenhead left a generous gift specifically for the sale and protection of Trevose Head. Their gift was used to secure the sale of the headland and as a result has directly contributed to the protection of this amazing place; ensuring its remains a place for nature and for people. 
Mr Scholes also left a gift to the National Trust in his will. This was left for acquiring stretches of coast in the South west that the National Trust would be able to protect for the benefit of people for ever. 
In both these instances, the generosity of these supporters has meant, that as a charity we have been able to buy and protect Trevose Head for ever, so that future generations can enjoy this amazing stretch of coast, and that nature can thrive. 

Without these legacies we would not have been able to make an offer to buy and protect the headland and we will look after Trevose Head in their memory for ever. 

David and Jenny Coltart in Cornwall have kindly pledged the Trust a gift in their Will and here’s why they made that choice- 
“We have given very careful consideration to what sort of gifts we want to leave in our wills. We considered that it should go further than just our family. We want to make gifts based on those experiences and places that are very important to us and our family.   
We have been fortunate to have travelled extensively across five continents and the spectacular North Cornwall coastline is second to none in beauty. Every time we walk our dog on Pentire, we are extremely grateful to those foresighted and generous people who contributed and saved this beautiful coastal area for everybody through the National Trust. Now Trevose Head will be similarly protected by the National Trust and we hope that the money gifted in our wills can help equally important projects in the future”
