The last 18 months have prompted many of us to reflect on the things that matter the most – family, friends and the causes close to your heart. We’ve also been reminded of the value of planning for the future, to help look after the things we care about most.

Remember A Charity Week, from 6 to 12 September 2021, is the perfect opportunity to consider passing on something wonderful by leaving a gift in your Will.

After taking care of your family and friends, even a small amount can make a huge impact. A gift in your Will could help us to fill people’s last days with love for generations to come.

Rebecca's story

School teacher Rebecca was just 23 when her father Neil died in 2015 at the age of 51. Her grandfather Duncan, 81, died a year later in 2016, leaving Rebecca determined to ensure Sue Ryder will continue to be there when it matters for other families in the future. 

“I hope that my gift will be able to support families that find themselves in need of the care that Sue Ryder provides. Before my own personal encounter with Wheatfields Hospice, I was not a regular supporter of the charity, but I was aware of the work that Sue Ryder do as several of my friends’ parents had visited the hospice for end-of-life care.

“Personally, the decision to leave a gift to Sue Ryder was an incredibly easy one. It was heavily influenced by my experience of the hospice, not only the patient care but also support of relatives.

Remembering charities in your will, no matter how big or small, is to give a gift that carries on helping others after you have gone."

Why leave a gift in your Will to Sue Ryder?

By leaving a gift in your will to Sue Ryder, you will help to provide palliative, bereavement and neurological care in our hospices, neurological centres and in the community.

We treat more conditions than any other UK-based charity and our doctors, nurses and carers focus on giving people the best quality of care possible during some of the most difficult and devastating times of their lives. 

Looking to the future, gifts in wills are even more crucial to ensure that more care is provided for more people. This means doubling the amount of people that we care for and support by 2023. Demand is growing for our end of life services, bereavement support and specialist neurological care, and gifts in Wills can help us reach more people than ever before.
