Leaving a gift is simple

We respect that when it comes to your Will, family will always come first. That’s how it should be.

But if you think you’d like to leave us a gift, this page tells you everything you need to know, including guidance on making or amending your Will for free.

A gift everyone can afford

If you choose to include us in your Will, you have to give what feels right to you. That way, it’s a gift that anyone can afford. Big or small, these special gifts go a long way – and are vital if we’re going to beat blood cancer forever.

How to leave a legacy

Including a gift in your Will is simple, but for your own piece of mind, we always suggest that you use a qualified solicitor.

We work with McClure Solicitors and the Goodwill Partnership. They offer free, expert guidance on making or updating your Will.

McClure Solicitors

Your gift to Blood Cancer UK

If you’re kindly leaving a gift to Blood Cancer UK, we suggest you use the following wording when making or amending your will:

“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.”

Adding Blood Cancer UK to an existing Will

Again, we recommend you use a trusted solicitor, and the wording we’ve suggested above.

Getting the basics right

The most important information to include is our name, address and registered charity number. That way, you can be sure your gift gets to the right place.

Blood Cancer UK, 39-40 Eagle Street, London WC1R 4TH

Registered charity 216032 (England & Wales) SC037529 (Scotland)

I’ve included a gift in my Will, but my name has changed

If you’ve changed your name since including us in your Will, no need to worry. Wills made under any previous names are still valid – and so is your generous gift.
