Leave a gift in your Will and change the lives of working animals in the world’s poorest communities forever.

Here we have made the practical elements of leaving a gift to the Brooke as straight forward as possible, but should you have any further queries please do contact the legacy team on 0207 470 9343. 

There are three simple ways that you can make a huge difference:

A residuary legacy: A residuary legacy will leave the Brooke a share or the whole of your estate after your other wishes and expenses have been met. This is probably the best option for both your loved ones and the Brooke. A residuary legacy ensures your family are provided for first, and your gift may grow over time as the value of your estate increases.

A pecuniary legacy: A pecuniary legacy is the gift of a specific amount of money. By leaving a pecuniary legacy to the Brooke you can fix an amount in your Will, but its value may be reduced over the years by inflation.

A specific legacy : A specific legacy is the gift of a physical item or items in your Will to the Brooke. This may be property or jewellery, for example.

Whichever way you choose, that decision ensures that the Brooke can continue helping even more working equines, your legacy guarantees them a better future.

Provided here is the wording that would best set out your intentions to leave a gift to the Brooke:

If you would like to include a gift to the Brooke in your Will, please use the following wording:

‘I give <add your own chosen percentage of your estate or amount here> to the Brooke Hospital for Animals of , 5th Floor, Friars Bridge Court, 41-45 Blackfriars Road, London, SE1 8NZ, Charity registration no. 1085760 for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Legacy Programme Manager or other proper officer of the Brooke Hospital for Animals shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.’


These simple steps can change the future for the lives of equines working in the hardest conditions for the world’s poorest communities.

Your pledge can put an end to these animals suffering and enhance the knowledge and understanding of communities so that they can pass on the message to future generations. That all begins with your decision here.
