rememberacharity - 1Would you like to pass on something legendary?

Remember A Charity Week is asking the nation to reflect on the wisdom passed between the generations. You can start by joining in our sponsored Twitter chat on 16th September.

In celebration Aardman Animations Ltd, creators of Wallace and Gromit have released a new short film.

The animated film is voiced by poet and broadcaster, Ian McMillan and includes quotes crowd sourced from charity supporters across the UK. The motivational and insightful phrases have been crafted into a poem aimed to inspire the nation to pass on something legendary be it through a gift in their Wills or sharing their wise words. Celebrity contributors to the film include Eamonn Holmes, who advises, ‘The harder you work, the luckier you tend to get’ and Rufus Hound who wants to remind people to ‘Be smart enough to realise how stupid you are’.

rememberacharity - 4Remember A Charity Week (12th -18th September) encourages people to consider leaving a charitable gift in their Will. This year they are asking the nation to reflect on their own words of wisdom through the online quote generator and to share them with the hashtag #mywisdom.

Director of Remember A Charity, Rob Cope said: We hope this film encourages more people to think about the mark they make on the world, through what they say and what they do, including leaving a gift to charity in their Will. Without these donations many charities just would simply not exist.”

This year’s annual Remember A Charity Week will take place from 12th – 18th September. To find out more visit:
