Wembley man John Street always wanted his wealth to significantly benefit society. A kind and humble man who worked hard and lived a modest lifestyle, Mr Street wanted his estate left in memory of his sister who died of throat cancer. Following his death in 2010, Mr Street’s estate was bequeathed to the Cancer Council WA which gifted $6m to the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation for WA’s first children’s hospice. “It’s exactly where he hoped the money would go. Bequeathing money is a very desirable thing. If it can be given to someone in the community like a charity it will help the whole community for years to come and many generations will benefit.” – Graham Ockleshaw, friend of 60 years.
Gifts in Wills do not need to be large to make a difference and are an impactful way for your funds to live on. Gifts of any size will help sick children for generations to come.
