Remembering Lingen Davies by leaving a gift in your will – no matter how small the gift – will make a real difference to local cancer patients…
Many people think they don’t need a Will, because they don’t have anything of real worth to leave. However, everyone should make a Will.
It is only right that you want to remember your loved ones in your Will, but you may also wish to consider leaving a gift to charity. Those who remember Lingen Davies Cancer Fund in their Will, no matter how small the gift, will make a difference to cancer patients in Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales.
People may have different reasons for leaving a gift to charity, in their Will – it could be a way to say thank you for funding equipment or services that support the excellent treatment our patients need. It could be that the donor admires the work of our charity, or it could even be the result of a positive experience when talking to a volunteer or member of staff. Whatever their motivation, we are extremely grateful for any gift left to us.
We are working with a local solicitor firm to offer 10 people the chance to have their Will written for a donation to the charity, instead of paying the usual solicitor fees. To find more about this scheme, please click here.
We advise that you seek advice from a solicitor before writing or amending your Will. This ensures all legal formalities are carried out correctly and that your Will is legal and witnessed. You will need the full details of the charity to ensure that your wishes are carried out accurately. These are provided below:
Charity Name: Lingen Davies Cancer Fund
Registered Charity Number: 1160922
Royal Shrewsbury Hospital
Mytton Oak Road
Shrewsbury SY3 8XQ
There are 3 different ways in which a gift can be made; a Pecuniary gift, a Residuary gift or a Specific Gift
A Pecuniary gift is a set amount of money.
A Residuary gift is a percentage of your estate. This means that, however much your estate is worth, you ensure your loved ones are looked after. It also means you don’t have to keep altering your Will as your circumstances change.
A Specific gift is naming property as a gift. E.g. jewellery or stocks
Your solicitor will be able to talk to you about the different options for leaving a gift and give advice on what will work best for you and your family.
You can make an amendment to an existing will by adding a codicil. Please seek advice from a solicitor to ensure that the wording is correct. By adding this supplement to your will you can include new instructions and delete old ones without having to revoke the whole will.
If you would like to discuss how to leave a gift to Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, please contact Louise Dawson, Fundraising Manager on 01743 492396.
We take our responsibilities very seriously, ensuring every penny of your gift will be used wisely and in accordance with your wishes wherever possible.
