Why I’m leaving a legacy

By Roger Scrivens

“When my wife Sandie and I lost our youngest daughter Becky (11) in May 2004 to SUDEP, our world fell apart. But, something inside keeps you going and something “outside” helped that process. The “outside” I speak of was Epilepsy Bereaved. The charity helped us through our darkest days and provided a cathartic channel along which we ventured, with trepidation at first and then wholeheartedly. We have attended charity gatherings and have been involved in many fund raising events in memory of Becky. Towards the end of 2009, I was invited to join the Charity’s Board of Trustees, an opportunity which I was delighted to accept.”

"We are all mortal and I decided some while ago that when I pass on, I wanted to leave a bequest to benefit the Charity. I have made sure that Epilepsy Bereaved are now included in my will. To me, it will be a tangible way of saying a final thank you to an organisation that has helped me continue my life following my saddest of days”.

It is a common myth that only the rich and famous leave money to charity when they die.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  The reality is that we all have it in our power to change the world for the better after we go.
