Veteran freelance journalist Tira Shubart explains why she is leaving a gift in her will to the Rory Peck Trust

I recently updated my will to make sure that the people, the charities and the organisations that I care about will benefit from my legacy. For me, of course, that includes The Rory Peck Trust.

In my life as a journalist I’ve been privileged to meet and sometimes work alongside freelance journalists who tell the stories we need to know, often at great risk to themselves.

One of these brave journalists was Rory Peck. We first met and worked together during the Romanian Revolution in Bucharest in 1989. Rory was a brave and principled journalist and one with tremendous style. Everyone who met Rory has their own memories of his dedication to tell the story. He was driven by passion and commitment to be a truth teller which inspired the founding of this Trust.

I want my legacy to continue to support these ideals and our colleagues whose work, more than ever, is essential to democracy and civil societies.

Please consider including a legacy to The Rory Peck Trust in your will.

Tira Shubart
Chair of the Rory Peck Trust
