\u201cMy husband Frank was a Unicef supporter since the moment he retired,\u201d says Pat. Before that, Frank had been a busy headmaster and Pat had a career in publishing. Pat describes her husband as \u201cquite the showman.\u201d \r\n\r\nAfter they stopped working, Pat says that selling home-baked goods and preserves in the local market became \u201cpart of our lives.\u201d \r\n\r\n\u201cI produce every week,\u201d she explains. \u201cThe money I make goes towards regular contributions to Unicef\u201d.\r\n\r\nPat and Frank also used their retirement to tour schools and organisations around Britain, giving talks about the work Unicef does to help children.\r\n\r\n\u201cI'm always inclined to try and convert people to the cause!\u201d Pat laughs.\r\nSeeing Unicef\u2019s work firsthand\r\nWhen Pat and Frank travelled abroad, their initial plans for a relaxing holiday would somehow often divert into a Unicef trip instead.\r\n\r\n\u201cFrank had travelled to Kenya, Sudan and India, and he liked the way that Unicef used initiatives to link with other charities,\u201d says Pat.\r\n\r\n\u201cOn one occasion, we were able to travel to Mombasa along Kenya\u2019s coastline, and we saw vaccination and primary health programmes taking place in small villages along the way. \r\n\r\n\u201cWe met community leaders, and saw how Unicef set up non-governmental schools so that children could attend when they were able, and wear the clothes they already possessed, which really made education more accessible for everyone.\u201d\r\nFrank\u2019s memory lives on\r\nSadly, Frank passed away in 2001. Pat continues to uphold the heartfelt support that they pledged together.\r\n\u201cIt was a simple decision for us to put Unicef in our Wills,\u201d says Pat. \u201cWe thought it was a very good idea.\u201d\r\n\u201cYou support whatever you feel will make the biggest change in the world. The good people of Unicef have always been sensible and accountable, and that\u2019s the most important thing.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cMy gift will join Frank\u2019s when I leave this world. It\u2019s the best thing I can do. I've been so lucky.\u201d\r\nLeave a gift in your Will to Unicef\r\nYou can help build a better future for children, just like Pat and Frank.\r\n\r\nGet your free Gifts in Wills guide at unicef.uk\/legacy or call Unicef's friendly team on 0300 330 5580.
