Leaving a Legacy to our Charity

Leave a gift in your will

For some children coming to UKSA, it’s the first time they have ever seen the sea. Their time with us builds their confidence and life skills by using both water based and land based activities, and opens up a whole new world for them. We aim to work with these children and young people in as many ways as we can, including supporting them through careers courses so they can enter the maritime sector.

Noel and Sylvia Lister wanted to give something back to society and help young people. In 1988, they set up UKSA and this legacy still lives on in everything we do today. By remembering UKSA with a gift in your will, you are making a unique and special commitment that will help us continue to support children and young people long in to the future.

Visit Remember a Charity’s website for advice and information on how to make a will and leave a gift to UKSA.
