Leaving a gift is simple

We respect that when it comes to writing your Will, most of us will want to make sure that our families and loved ones are taken care off.

You can still make sure your loved ones have what they need, while leaving us a gift too. This page will tell you everything you need to know, such as how to make a Will and amend it for free.

How to leave a legacy

Free Will Service – solicitors

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

They can help you to make or update your Will, and both offer phone and video appointments.

Get 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)

If you're planning to add Blood Cancer UK to an existing Will, we recommend you use a trusted solicitor and the below wording.

“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.”

If your name has changed...

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

Different types of gifts

Leaving a percentage of your estate to Blood Cancer UK is known as a residuary gift.

Even just 1% of your estate could provide a lifesaving difference.

If you decide to do this, 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.”

Alternatively, you can specify an amount to be left, such as £1,000. This is also known as a pecuniary gift, where every single penny will be used to pave the way to beating blood cancer.

You can also choose to leave us a rare book, a painting, a piece of jewellery or even your house. This gift from your family could make sure that families in the future are supported.
