The Walter Carrington Educational Trust aims to receive valuable income from donations made to the charity by supporters in their wills. The work it funds has helped the teaching and training of people in the Alexander Technique.
The value of a gift in your Will to a charity is deducted before the estate is assessed for inheritance tax, so a gift to The Walter Carrington Educational Trust could reduce your liability for inheritance tax.

For example, you may decide to leave 10% to be used for the general purposes of The Walter Carrington Educational Trust.
