Janet decided to support Wesley with a gift in her will as a tribute to her mother who instilled in her the passion to make a real difference to those who need help.
“My mother, who died more than 50 years ago now, volunteered and attended church regularly. She had a great fondness for its work. And my father was a lay preacher.
My brother and I were brought up to assume that helping others was just something that you did. It wasn’t a big issue; it was just the way things were.
Most people we knew did the same.
In my life, I continue that tradition and support several charities.
So in memory of my mum, I have made sure to include a gift in my will to Wesley Mission Victoria.
She cared – as I do – about the people Wesley works with – those in crisis, who may be homeless, have a disability, those who are elderly and alone or in some way vulnerable.
So it’s a pleasure for me to make this gesture of including a gift in my will to Wesley Mission Victoria.
Mum would have appreciated it, and I find it satisfying to know that I’ve been able to do this for her. It’s a way of making sure that our commitment to helping others lives on.’’
