Nearly half of the charity’s income comes from gifts left to us in wills. Thanks to the generous support of local people, we have helped to make life better for patients being treated in our hospitals for a range of conditions from cancer to cardio and everything in between.
Making or changing a will doesn’t need to be complicated and can be relatively inexpensive. It also allows you to decide who has a share of your estate and that your last wishes are respected even when you’re not there to explain them.
Naturally your first priority will be to look after your loved ones, but you may find that there is room to leave a gift to charity. This doesn’t mean you have to be wealthy, any gift, whatever the size is valuable to us because it enables us to support more patients.
You can choose to leave a gift to our general fund and this will be used to fund areas we believe will deliver the greatest benefit to patients and their families. Alternatively you can donate to a specific ward or service, like the Special Care Baby Unit or Young Adult Leukaemia fund. This allows you to support the area that means the most to you.
