Leaving a legacy in your Will to
Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity
Many people have been touched by the work carried out by Weston Park Hospital, one of only three dedicated Cancer hospitals in the country. As a result, many people wish to contribute towards the research and care carried out by the hospital.
Weston Park Hospital Cancer charity is the dedicated charity for Weston Park Hospital. The Cancer Research Centre at Weston Park is internationally recognised, and the Cancer Support Centre offers patients, their families and carers extra help and support in living with cancer. Both receive funding from the Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity. The charity also funds vital equipment and patient care within the hospital itself.
One way to help is to leave a gift or legacy in your Will. This funding is crucial to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity to allow it to continue supporting the high levels of care and also to continue to move forward research into cancer treatments. There are a couple of methods of leaving a legacy:
- A residuary gift allows you to leave a share of your estate, once you have provided for your family or other loved ones.
- A pecuniary gift allows you to leave a specific amount of money to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
Leaving a legacy to a charity like this can also have postitive tax implications for your estate as charitable gifts are free on Inheritance Tax.
Leaving a legacy is straightforward and can be done by either making a Will, if you do not already have one, or amending your existing Will.
