Leave a gift in your will

Your legacy can help beat cancer sooner

Gifts in wills are very important to North West Cancer Research.

More than a third of funding for NWCR’s carefully targeted scientific research comes from generous, caring people who have made the battle to beat cancer part of their life’s legacy.

It’s easy to do – especially with the FREE legal support offered by our trusted partners McClure Solicitors – and acting now means you can make sure that advances in cancer medicine will continue to benefit local people for generations to come.

Leaving a special gift in your will to North West Cancer Research, after you have looked after your family and friends, will help more people to survive cancer.

Any gift, large or small, makes a real difference in easing the impact of cancer on our communities, and the combined kindness of the thousands of people who have already remembered North West Cancer Research in their will adds up to something truly amazing.

Breakthroughs in cancer research can and do happen. Our researchers know more than ever about cancer and we are able to save more lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease.

But high-quality research takes time, which is why we need to plan for the future and ensure that – with your help – our vital work can continue for many years to come.

If you’d like your will to play a part in beating cancer, please contact Jennifer Higgs by calling 0151 709 2919 or emailing jennifer@nwcr.org for an informal and confidential chat.

TYPES OF LEGACY

Residuary gift

A residuary gift is a percentage or share of your estate. It is not affected by variations in inflation so is one of the most valuable ways to give.

Suggested wording may include:

‘I give to North West Cancer Research. Charity registered in England and Wales no 519357 of 200 London Road, Liverpool, L3 9TA, (hereinafter called NWCR) the residue (or % share of the residue) of my estate absolutely and I direct that the proceeds may be used for the general and /or specific purposes of NWCR as my executors see fit.’

Pecuniary gift

A pecuniary gift is a fixed amount of money from your estate. Suggested wording may include: ‘I give to North West Cancer Research. Charity registered in England and Wales no 519357 of 200 London Road, Liverpool, L3 9TA, (hereinafter called NWCR) the sum of £ and I direct that the proceeds be used for the general and/ or specific purposes of NWCR as my executors see fit.’

You can choose who the Executors of your will should be. Many people choose friends, family or a solicitor to act on their behalf.

A will is one of the most important documents you will ever make, so it is important to ensure the wording is correct and the document is legally binding.
