The number of transfers to charities on death worth over a million had increased to 3,043 from 2,328 the previous year.
This will be longed-for news to the charity sector, especially as they have been hit hard due to the coronavirus pandemic – as there is currently approximately a £10.1 billion funding shortfall within the sector due to COVID-19.
