A gift in your will

Bequests have helped the College since its foundation. Every year we learn about new planned gifts and this year
is no different. A new bequest is on its way from the estate of Dr Kenneth Edwards (in College 1947-52). This will support religious fellowships in the College to be named after our two ‘bishop’ Wardens, Felix Arnott and Max Thomas. Click for more on Planned Giving
