Former Vice Chair Gaynor Humphreys shares why she has decided to remember CPAG in her will.
I became a member of CPAG in 1972, shortly after I started my first job. I was working in those days with mothers in very low paid jobs, mostly working as night cleaners in stations, who were desperately struggling to keep going. I got a very strong sense of what poverty feels like and just how much effort people put in to managing and making the best for their children.
It is unbearable that still today so many children in our very prosperous country are living in really poor families and going to school hungry.
For me, CPAG is an organisation that offers so much constructive hope for changing the situation these children are in. The opportunity to support them after I’ve gone, when I might be worth a little bit, is too good not to take up.
CPAG has partnered with the National Free Wills Network, so you can write or update your will for free with a local solicitor of your choosing.
