Ruth's story

Ruth Pounds left a gift in her will as an expression of her love for God and others in need.

Committed Tearfund supporter, Ruth Pounds, decided to leave a gift in her will as an expression of her love for God and others in need.

Her cousin Dorothy said, ‘Ruth Pounds had a deep love for Jesus and his caring heart for those known locally to her.

‘She also had a deep love for those living abroad in less fortunate conditions than her own, both in practical and spiritual terms.

‘Ruth supported Tearfund over the last 30 years and would be so pleased that her legacy will be used to continue to transform the qualify of life of others.'
