Everybody should make a will and, for most of us, it is a very good way of looking after our family and other loved ones once we are dead. It can also be a way of supporting charity projects we really care about.
By leaving a gift in your will, you can continue to support Dr Susana Banerjee’s research into new targeted treatments for gynaecological cancers and help us continue to raise awareness of these cancers. There are different types of legacies:
This is where you decide to leave all or part of the remainder of your estate, once you have made gifts to others, to The Gynaecological Cancer Fund.
You can decide to leave a fixed sum of money, although obviously, as time goes on, the real value of that money will decrease because of inflation.
You could leave a gift such as property, jewellery or stocks and shares.If you already have an up-to-date will but would like to include a gift for The Gynaecological Cancer Fund you could prepare an addendum or codicil to that will and sign it in the presence of two witnesses. You need to make sure it is kept with your original will. If you are in any doubt about what to do, you should consult a solicitor or financial adviser.
