A man who acted as executor of his mother-in-law's estate has expressed concern about the number of letters he received asking for charitable donations, reports the Third Sector.

Under the terms of the will, a charitable legacy of £20,000 was left to a number of specified charities. However, over the space of three months Marcus Watkins said that he received letters from 58 different charities asking for donations, which was upsetting for him and his family.

Mr Watkins complained to the charities concerned, a number of which have now changed their approach to legacy fundraising.
