Remember Us In Your Will

The Group has been lucky enough to receive donations from Wills in the past.  All such donations are gratefully received and wisely used.  For instance, the hide was paid for, and is maintained thanks to a legacy.  Laptops and screens were purchased to enable us to modernise our presentations and substantial rescue equipment provided to those members who are willing to turn out at all hours to help injured and sick badgers. We have been able to pass on some of the donations to Secret World and Badger Trust to enable both organisations to continue their good work.  If you are considering making or altering your Will to include a donation to the NEEBG, please consult your solicitor.  Of course, should you prefer that any donation remains within North East Essex, please make those wishes clear and they will be respected.
