Leave a legacy


Will you do something legendary and live a gift in your Will to PET?

"My professional life was all in education and my launching into that was all to do with the encouragement I received from my family. I grew up with books! I think of those whose lives have started off without that boost and who go off the rails for all sorts of reasons. Opening doors through education to fellow men and women, whose twists and turns in life have not been as comfortable as mine, just seemed wholly appropriate."

This is Di, a legacy pledger to PET. She wants to make sure others received the educational opportunities she was fortunate to receive, and her support will ensure PET's work continues in the future, supporting prisoner learners for as long as we are needed.

Will you consider joining Di and our pledge community? A gift however large or small will ensure prison education continues to play a vital role in rebuilding both lives and our communities far into the future.

Your gift will help men and women in prison develop their skills and knowledge, reconnect with their families, and stop them returning to prison after release. Your gift can help people like 'Paul':

A gift in your Will can mean we’re always here to make sure prisoners like Paul can find a new direction in life, and build a better future for themselves and their families.

The process of making or amending a Will is relatively straightforward but it is always best to seek legal advice.
