Leave a gift in your will
Quote: “By leaving a gift in your will to StrongMen, you will be directly supporting those you leave behind, giving them greater opportunity to access the support that is proven to help men deal with the mental and emotional struggles they face”
To bequeath a charitable gift to StrongMen in your Will, you will need to provide you solicitor or Will maker with the following information:
Registered charity number in England and Wales: 1184242
Registered address: Amelia House, Crescent Road, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 1RL
What different types of gift can I leave?
• A specific gift is a possession or item such as jewellery, property or shares.
• A pecuniary gift is a financial donation of a fixed amount. However, because of inflation, these are liable to depreciate during the course of your lifetime. That’s why some people may prefer to leave a residuary gift.
• A residuary gift is all or part/percentage of what is left of your estate once your other wishes have been carried out.
How will StrongMen use my gift?
The team behind StrongMen are dedicated and fully committed to developing a charity that helps thousands of people per year. We would kindly ask that you please consider an unrestricted gift towards our charitable work. This will mean that we can make sure your legacy is used most effectively, spending it wherever the need is greatest at the time.
Will this impact inheritance tax?
In most cases, your gift to StrongMen will be exempt from inheritance tax. Your solicitor or Will maker should explain how to make your Will as tax efficient as possible. It is possible to reduce the rate of inheritance tax for people who leave at least 10% of their estate to charity. This can be explained in greater detail by a solicitor.
Should I tell StrongMen about the gift in my Will?
We’d love to hear from you if you want to share your amazing arrangement but completely understand if you wish for it to remain private. Sharing your story with us can help us to inspire many more people to do the same.
Finally, know that the gift in your Will, is going to help someone that so desperately needs it and we are immensely grateful. Thank you.

Fundraising in Schools
It is part of the StrongMen mission that we promote the benefits of men seeking help for their mental and emotional health by not being afraid or ashamed to speak out and admit they need some support. It is vital that this message is promoted in schools as part of a child’s education.
Men are still reluctant to open up even in modern society with all the campaigns promoting the need to talk. It may take a generation or two to change this mind set but StrongMen will do all we can to make this happen. It all starts with the kids!
The support of your school is vital to the ongoing development of StrongMen and our services. There are so many fun things your school can do to raise much needed funds for Strongmen. Both Dan & Efrem, StrongMen co-founders are available to host an informative presentation or interactive workshop to your pupils in return for a committed fundraising day at your school.
Here are some seriously fun ways you can support StrongMen:
Dress down day
Always a firm favourite - what’s not to like about not having to wear school uniform for the day? You could ask each pupil for a suggested donation of £1 per pupil for taking part.
Bake Off competition and sale!
The great British Bake Off at your school, need I say more! – whether you like baking cakes or just eating them! Encourage your fellow pupils to donate some cakes or tray bakes to sell.
What parent, grandparent doesn’t love an evening out watching their children sing, dance and act their hearts out on stage at the local school? Whether it’s a Christmas production or something more ambitious like your own version of hit musicals such as Grease, Glee and High School Musical or even a modern version of a Shakespear classic. This is a great way to raise funds, educate and have fun all in one!
Walking is one of the tools StrongMen promote to increase our physical health so a school walk fits in beautifully with that ethos. If you are feeling really daring, how about attempting to break a world record as a school? Now there’s a thought.
Sports day/Sports match
As the warmer months come in, why not organise a charity sports event or sports day? Teachers against pupils always generates a lot of interest. You can sell refreshments, create a program for local businesses to advertise and learn how to market an event. On the face of it, this is just a sports event, but its yet another way to incorporate education and skills into creating, planning and delivering an event and everything that goes with it.
