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 helping research and other projects that we care about.
By leaving a gift in your will, you can continue to help Dr Susana Banerjee in her vital genome therapy research and help us continue to raise awareness of gynaecological cancers. There are different types of legacies:
This is where you decide to leave all or part of the reminder of your estate, once you have given gifts to others to Gynaecological Cancer Fund.
You can determine 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.
