WHAT IS IT?
WPA’s Golden Pheasant Club is open to any of you members of WPA who have notified WPA that you have left money to WPA in your will. As simple as that. No subscription. Free.
WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN IT?
Obviously, to help the vitally important work of the charity and help ensure its long-term future, at absolutely no cost to yourself. And to feel good about it. And to enjoy the splendid (free) lunch events at unusual unique locations that are organised for the Club members every 2 or 3 years. (And possibly even as an unusual form of life insurance, in that the mortality rate among Golden Pheasant Club members has been low over the 15 years that it has been going).
WHAT ARE THE DRAWBACKS?
Can you think of any? Remembering to do it when you next change or make your will, or leave a message for your executors?
You don’t have to promise to give all, nor even most, of your estate to WPA --- we would not want anyone to deprive their family of much of their inheritance; but to share a bit of it?
All legacies made to UK charities are tax-free, so are deducted from the value of an estate before Inheritance Tax is applied.
Previous events have included Fishmongers Hall, Blenheim Palace, Fawley Hill Steam Railway, and Sculpture by the Lakes.
WHY NOT JOIN NOW?
The next event will be on Friday 12th July this year. So if you join quickly, and depending on numbers, you could just be in time to attend it. It will be a visit to the Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery in Hampshire followed by a visit to Ashe Warren Farm, the home of Wildflower Earth and Wildflower Turf. Our hosts will be Susan Hewetson-Brown and her son James. We will have lunch and a tour of the farm. We will look forward to seeing you there, we hope. Or another year?
To join the Club, just notify Barbara Ingman, WPA, Middle, Ninebanks, Hexham, Northumberland, NE47 8DL, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
