How to leave a gift in your Will
When writing your Will, it’s important to know what’s involved and how to go about it. If you’re thinking about leaving a gift to Blood Cancer UK, then thank you.
Our guide takes you through all you need to know.
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.
If you'd like help writing your Will, our partner McClure Solicitors offer a free service to our supporters. McClure Solicitors are now offering phone and video appointments.
The Goodwill Partnership
We've teamed up with The Goodwill Partnership to offer our supporters help drawing up a Will. The Goodwill Partnership are now offering appointments via phone and video.
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.
