There are three main types of gift you can leave:  

  1. A share of your estate – after you have provided for family and friends you can leave a share or the remainder of your estate to us. This is known as a residuary gift.  
  2. A cash gift – you can leave a fixed sum of money out is, this is known as a pecuniary gift.  
  3. A specific gift – this can be any item such as a piece of jewellery or shares. 

We understand that family and friends come first, and we are truly grateful for any gift left to us. No matter how big or small any gift will make a lifesaving difference in the future.  

If you don’t leave a Will, the government will decide who your assets go to. By creating a Will you can choose exactly how your estate is divided and care for your family, friends and the causes that are important to you.

It is important to ensure your Will is up to date, particularly if your family situations change, for example, if you get married, divorced, lose a loved one, or decide to start a family you might want to change the information in your Will. If you would like to use our free Will writing service to update your Will please contact our gifts in Wills Team.
