Leaving a gift in your will

A few kind words in your will can give others a gift of incredible care.

Having an up-to-date will is one of the most caring things you can do for your loved ones. For many people, it is also a place to show charity and kindness to others.

By including a gift to Sue Ryder in your will, you will help provide incredible care in the future to people at the most difficult time of their lives.

We depend hugely on gifts in wills, as they make up an essential part of our income. We simply couldn’t carry on doing our work without them. A gift of any size can make a difference, and can help keep our services going, and growing, in the future.

Your legacy can make a real difference

With your generosity you can help us:

  • buy new equipment, such as specially-made wheelchairs
  • recruit more nurses to enable us to provide 24-hour care in our centres
  • train more nurses in specialist medical care
  • simply give the people we care for a special treat
However much you can leave, it will make a real difference to the lives of the people we care for.

More than 70% of our income comes from voluntary donations.
