Changes to Wills Notification Service could affect charitable spend on good causes says ILM

first_imgChanges to Wills Notification Service could affect charitable spend on good causes says ILM Tagged with: legacies Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The Institute of Legacy Management has raised concerns over whether there will be a new Wills Notification Service in place when the Smee & Ford contract expires in under six months.In a statement, the ILM says that no service could have a hugely detrimental effect on charitable spend and the ability of charities to help the good causes they support. Although the legacy income would reach them eventually, accounts for 2019 would be reduced and charities would need to adjust plans for charitable spend accordingly.The ILM has been selected to be a part of the working group that will look at future models and the requirements of the charity sector moving forward.To help establish the needs of its members and the best way to develop a new service, ILM surveyed its members and convened a working group with a range of charities. It says that it is very clear from both the survey and discussions with the working group that a lapse in service will be very detrimental to charities, and that any new service needs to be transitioned in smoothly and be similar in many ways to the existing Smee & Ford service.ILM is now in the process of drafting a submission regarding a new service to the Ministry of Justice, outlining the concerns, which will be completed next week in advance of the first consultation meeting with the MoJ which will take place in early March.

Robert Lindsay Roars For Lions

first_imgRenowned actor Robert Lindsay has joined forces with ZSL London Zoo to voice the campaign for the Zoo’s biggest and most breath-taking new exhibit, Land of the Lions.Video: Land of the Lions – TV AdvertLindsay, who is a vocal animal enthusiast and supporter of global animal charities, generously donated his recognisable growl to the new advert, to help raise awareness of the new exhibit opening at Easter.After lending his fittingly gruff tones to the film, Robert explained: “When ZSL asked me to support their Asiatic lion campaign I pounced on the chance. Land of the Lions is like stepping into India in the heart of the city; seeing and hearing the pride of endangered big cats up-close is an experience like nothing else.“I’m passionate about protecting wildlife – enabling children to come face-to-face with magnificent animals like a lion is one of the best things you can do to inspire them about conservation.”The exciting new advert from international conservation charity the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) follows a young boy (played by rising star Matteo Elezi) on a grey day out with his family. He spots a poster for the new Land of the Lions exhibit at ZSL London Zoo, and it miraculously springs to life for him. His excitement takes over and the whole family step through the poster to immerse themselves in Land of the Lions.The new advert will air on ITV and Channel 4 in London and the South East, nationally on Sky, Cartoon Network and Disney, and in cinemas around the country from Monday 14 March.Home to a pride of endangered Asiatic lions (Panthera leo persica), Land of the Lions will open to the public on Friday 25 March 2016.
