Northants woman leaves £1.2m to Christian Aid

A woman has left £1.2m to Christian Aid in her will.

Kathleen Ball, who died in December 2006 and whose estate has just been wound up, was a long-standing member of the Wellingborough United Reformed Church and a supporter of the charity since 1987.

The Northamptonshire woman, who was 96 when she died, began working at Weetabix aged 16.

Christian Aid's total income in 2007 was £93m. "Christian Aid depends on legacies to fund more than 10 per cent of its work," said Colin Kemp, legacy manager at the charity.

Christian Aid is running a month-long promotion during November called Will Aid, designed to encourage more people to leave legacies.
