A gift in your will can be an expression of gratitiude and thanksgiving towards God, and is a vital part of keeping St Mary Magdalene, Great Hampden alive and securing it's future. Here at St Mary Magdalene we try to use income from legacies to support our common life, improve our facilities and preserve our mediaeval church. Throughout November both churches in the benefice will be sharing information about how you can support your church through your will. Look our for the bookmarks and leaflets that will give you more information. November is also Will Aid month, when lots of solicitors waive their fee for writing a basic will. Instead, they invite clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid. Find out more at www.willaid.org.uk.
