Dear Future: I Leave This Place For You – Mottistone, Isle of Wight

Learn more about how a gift in your will could help us carry out crucial conservation work at Mottistone and on the Isle of Wight.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Without gifts in wills, we simply wouldn’t be able to look after the extraordinary places in our care. This special event will take you behind the scenes to see first-hand how your support is helping us carry out crucial conservation work every day, and how a gift in your own will could help to safeguard the future of our special places.

Enjoy a guided tour of Mottistone led by our specialist team, and gain insight into future conservation projects on the Isle of Wight. A local solicitor of the National Free Wills Network will be explaining why an up to date will is so important and we’ll share information on the National Trust's free will writing service. Over light refreshments, you’ll have the opportunity to chat further to members of the team and learn more about why gifts in wills are so important to our work.
