Gifts in Wills
We know that when you’re considering your Will, loved ones come first. But once you’ve ensured their future, you could help improve the future for families affected by blood cancer by leaving us a legacy.
A Gift in a Will, no matter the size, will change the lives of people affected by blood cancer. It could be the most important gift you ever give.
Every 14 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. In that instant, their life is changed forever.
Blood Cancer UK doesn’t receive any government funding, and gifts in Wills, big and small, make up more than a third of our income every year. Without the gifts people like you leave in their Will, we simply couldn’t do what we do.

Making a Will can sometimes be confusing – and we know that our supporters often have questions about how the process works. Here we’ve answered some of the most common questions.
Your questions answered
Every gift left in a Will, no matter the size, is so important and we are grateful to everyone who chooses to support our work in this way. Gifts in Wills are absolutely vital for us to continue our work to change the lives of blood cancer patients, now and in the future
Thank you very much for including a gift to Blood Cancer UK in your Will. You don’t need change your Will if you’ve left a gift to us using one of your previous names, your generous gift is still valid and it’ll still reach us.
The most important bits of information to include are our name, our address and our registered charity number:
Blood Cancer UK, 39-40 Eagle Street, London WC1R 4TH
Registered charity 216032 (England & Wales) SC037529 (Scotland)
We suggest the following:
“I give to BLOOD CANCER UK, of 39-40 Eagle Street, London, WC1R 4TH, Registered charity number 216032 (England & Wales) SC037529 (Scotland), [______% of my estate] or [the sum of £___________ ], to be used for general charitable purposes absolutely and I declare that the receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.”
Including a gift to Blood Cancer UK in a Will is a straightforward, easy and cost-effective way to support our work. It simply involves adding a short paragraph (clause) to your Will. We’d always suggest that you use a qualified solicitor to assist you with this.
If you’ve already made a Will, it’s important that you keep it up to date – but making changes to an existing Will is simple.
