Blood cancers kill 15,000 people every year. By leaving a gift to Leukaemia Cancer Society you will enable us to:
• Fund cancer research of the highest international standard
• Continue providing support to future generations of patients and their families
• Reach diverse communities so no one misses out on diagnosis or treatment.
A gift you can afford
Give what is right for you. We understand that family and friends come first. Think about who you need to look after, who you want to give to and whether you would like to leave a gift to people with blood cancer. Big or small all gifts will make a difference.

Why make a will?
Dying without a will can make it much harder for your relatives to deal with your estate – and at a time when they are grieving. It can also mean that they have to pay more inheritance tax. Making a will means you get to decide what happens to your money and property and make sure you look after the people you love.
- A will makes it much easier for your family or friends to sort everything out when you die.
- If you don’t write a will, you won't be able to choose who inherits.
- A will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax you pay.
- A will is very important if you have people who depend on you financially.

How to leave a gift in your will
When you create a Will, you may wish to leave a gift within it. You can gift everything, or certain specifics within your Will - it is completely your choice.
There are three types of gifts you can leave:
- You can leave a particular item or a group of items such as a watch or furniture – this is known as a ‘Specific’ gift.
- You can leave money – in legal terms a ‘Pecuniary’ gift.
- The residue of your estate or what is left over – a ‘Residuary’ gift.
We have teamed up with the online will writing service Farewill. Their website will take you through a series of questions to create your will. If you need help they have advisors on hand. You will be asked if you would like to leave a gift to Leukaemia Cancer Society and any other charities. This is completely optional and confidential, unless you choose to tell us. Once completed, your will is checked by their solicitors and sent to you for signing. To take up the offer of a free will use this link farewill.com/lcs-web.
If you have a complex estate or you prefer face to face advice you should contact a solicitor. You can find a local solicitor through the Law Society law society.org.uk
