Gifts in Wills Events

Barnardo's runs local events around the country. Each event is designed to inform supporters about Barnardo's heritage and work with vulnerable children and young people today, through inspiring personal presentations.

Come and find out about Barnardo's and how your support can make a huge difference. Staff will be on hand to talk with you about how your time and skills could help Barnardo's fundraise in your local community and how leaving a gift in your Will can help our work continue into the future.
