Remembering VSO in your Will

Patricia Doyle, a VSO Volunteer, speaks to teh VSO Christmas Carol Concert this year

We want to leave behind a world without poverty. Where people aren’t dying because of a lack of access to healthcare, or denied an education because of their gender. A gift in your Will can help build a better future.
