By leaving a gift in your Will you are helping us continue our work raising awareness about cancer in the community. By thinking of us you will also be enhancing services and support for those impacted by cancer – both during and after treatment.
Many people think they don’t need a Will, because they don’t have anything of real worth to leave. However, everyone should make one – whether young or old, single or part of a couple, with or without children.
How to Leave a Gift
It is only right that you want to remember your loved ones in your Will, but you may also wish to consider leaving money to charity.
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 cancer 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.
You will need the full details of the charity to ensure that your wishes are carried out accurately.

What if I Already Have a Will?
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 declaration, you can include new instructions and delete old ones without having to revoke the whole Will.
By remembering Lingen Davies Cancer Fund in your Will, no matter how small the gift, you will make a difference to the wider community, raising cancer awareness, generating cancer relief, and benefitting cancer patients throughout Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales.

What about my family, what will they do?
It is only right for you to think of your family and loved ones first and ensure their comfort and security. If you do choose to leave a gift to Lingen Davies Cancer Fund in your Will we encourage you to talk to your family about your wishes and how you would like your money to be spent. It may well be that in the future your family actively seek to get involved with the charity to find out more about where your money is being spent. We can support you throughout the whole process.
Will people find out about my Will?
Your Will is very personal and your privacy will always be respected; we will never ask you for details. If you choose to share these with us, they will of course be treated with the utmost privacy and confidence. We will never publicise details about your legacy unless specifically asked to do so.
How do I begin leaving money in Will?
If you would like to leave money to charity in your Will we advise you to seek advice from a solicitor, both before writing or amending your existing Will. This ensures all legal formalities are carried out correctly and that the Will is legal and witnessed.
What if I change my mind?
It’s OK to change your mind, we appreciate that personal circumstances change and that you may wish to change your mind about a legacy request.
Can I say how I want my money spending?
Your wishes are very important to us and we will, whenever possible, respect your wishes on how your gift is spent.
