Gift in will: IT room refurbishment

Bill Perkins was a longstanding volunteer at Greathouse in Wiltshire and dedicated much of his spare time to the service. He left Greathouse a £1,000 gift in his will. His sons, Simon and Stephen, told us that Bill felt the service deserved support with a lasting gift, because of the important work they did. As Greathouse was so special to Bill, his sons added a further £1,000 to the gift.

The refurbishment took place in early 2014 and once complete, Stephen and Simon visited the service to see the amazing difference the gift had made.
