Give a gift that lasts…

Leave a legacy in your will

Take advantage of our free will writing service and leave a gift that creates a better, fairer world for generations to come.


Free will writing service

You already know that every adult should have a Will. You can use any solicitor but at present, we have teamed up with McClures, a national firm of solicitors who will provide a will-writing service - or a review of an existing will - free of charge (usually these services cost £200 - £250).

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. The service is completely confidential and free of charge. While many people choose to make a voluntary donation to Traidcraft Exchange, there is no obligation or pressure to do this.

You can also arrange a free review of your existing Will or a special price Lasting Power of Attorney service.

 A gift in your will is a catalyst for change

 Charles is a farmer and Grandfather in Northern Kenya, but in recent years his crops have failed, due to droughts. Despite working as a health visitor as well as a farmer, at times he struggled to feed his family. 

Charles took part in training offered by Traidcraft Exchange in techniques such as terracing and water storage methods. Now his crops are resilient, and his yields have increased dramatically. Safe in the knowledge he can support his family, he’s investing in his future, and that of his family and community – digging a water storage pan, and building an innovative chicken hatchery from corrugated iron. Most impressively, his success has made him a catalyst for change – he's bringing other farmers together to lobby for improved access to water in the area. Together, they are looking to build a borehole, which will change life for the whole community long into the future.  

“I am motivated to leave something that lasts and that can give my grandchildren a better life. For me, providing for my family is what motivates me the most.” 


A gift in your will is a catalyst for change – helping people like Charles to get the support they need to create a brighter future for themselves and their families and communities. Your legacy will help build a world free from injustice, where everyone, no matter where they were born, can earn a decent living from the hard work they do everyday.
