Give in your Will

Would you consider leaving a legacy to the Patrick Wild Centre in your Will? A legacy in most instances is tax free and will reduce any inheritance tax burden on your estate. Our Legacy Manager would be delighted to discuss this with you; please get in touch at +44 (0)131 650 9637 or  for more information.

We recommend that you seek advice from a solicitor before you make or update your Will.
