Children’s Air Ambulance Joins Len Goodman and Kara Tointon For Remember A Charity Week

Former Strictly Come Dancing head judge and professional ballroom dancer, Len Goodman, and 2010 Glitterball trophy winner and actress Kara Tointon will be joining the Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA) in support of this year’s Remember A Charity Week (7 –13 September 2020).

The Children’s Air Ambulance is one of over 200 charities taking part in Remember A Charity Week around the UK. The lifesaving children’s charity is urging its supporters to pass on something wonderful by leaving a gift in their Will, after they’ve taken care of friends and family.

The amazing work of TCAA has been made possible by gifts in Wills – allowing TCAA to be there for families in their greatest hour of need, giving children a future they might otherwise have had taken from them.

TCAA Legacies and In Memory Manager, Chloe Bass said: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s Remember A Charity Week, encouraging our supporters to pass on something wonderful to the next generation. Gifts in Wills are crucial to our charity’s work – both now and long into the future.

“Gifts left in Wills could help us to continue flying critically ill babies and children to specialist hospitals for lifesaving treatment – for years to come”.

Len Goodman commented: “This is my third year supporting Remember A Charity Week and I’ve had the chance to meet some of the fantastic people working hard for charitable causes. I’ve included a charitable gift in my Will after my family has been taken care of – it’s such a simple, easy thing to do that makes an enormous difference. Hopefully this week will inspire more people to do the same – just think what we could achieve if we all made that small change to our Will!”

Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, added: “Remember A Charity Week has grown year-on-year and I’m immensely proud that the 200-strong consortium is coming together to celebrate in these challenging times. This week offers a fantastic opportunity for charities to inspire their supporters to consider a cause they care deeply about in their Will and raise awareness of how this contributes to their vital work. Without this income, many charities simply would not exist and others would be forced to cut the crucial services so many of us rely on.”
