The importance of remembering a charity in your Will

Our family chosen charity is Action Medical Research. so we are studying this now.They tell us this

 gift in your will could unlock a future medical breakthrough, hold the key to a cure or treatment for a childhood illness, or simply make day-to-day life easier for children suffering illness or living with a disability.

Please don’t think that a gift in your will has to be large to make a difference. It costs an average of just £265 to fund a day’s research, and your gift could help fund a crucial component of a research project:

£6,000 could help fund over 1,000 blood tests to help understand the markers of illnesses like asthma.

£18,000 could help fund 75 MRI scans to investigate the reasons for stillbirth and other pregnancy complications.

£25,000 could help pay for 50 sleep laboratory admissions for children with Down syndrome to gain more information about obstructive sleep apnoea, and help improve its diagnosis.

Only a small proportion of us set our affairs in order with a properly arranged Will.

Costing surprisingly little, a Will gives you the peace of mind that your loved ones will be provided for. It also gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy. Legacies are the foundation of many good causes in the UK and you don’t need to leave a lot to charity to make a substantial difference.

Rob Cope, director of Remember A Charity, has said: “Gifts in Wills are the foundation of many of Britain’s charities, creating more than £2 billion for the provision of critical services each year.


You don’t have to go to extremes to become a living legend… you just need to leave a gift to charity in your Will.

Last year our specialist solicitors helped hundreds of people make their Wills.
