Why Chris has left a gift in his Will to VSO

Chris Staples, former VSO volunteer and legacy pledger.

Leaving a gift in your will helps ensure the goods of the world – whether that is knowledge, health or money – are a little bit better distributed. I’m always worried that so many people have so little, and I have so much. This is my way of addressing it, and giving people the opportunities they need."
