The Trust welcomes bequests to support its vision and responsibility that Riccarton House and Riccarton Bush is conserved, protected and enhanced so that it may be enjoyed forever by the generations to come.

A will can be as simple or as detailed as you wish but it is important that it be clear. Although you can write your own will it is strongly recommended that advice be taken from your solicitor or trust company.

The suggested wording for a bequest to the Riccarton Bush Trust is:

“I give, free of all duties, to the Riccarton Bush Trust, 16 Kahu Road, Riccarton, Christchurch, the sum of $… (or property, assets, or a percentage of my estate as described) for the general purposes of the Trust (or a stipulated specific purpose) for which the receipt of the accountant or other authorised officer of the Trust shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustees.”

To find out more about making a bequest and how your gift will benefit the Riccarton Bush Trust, please contact the Manager for a confidential discussion.
