Paying in a legacy cheque

Please make cheques payable to ‘Sue Ryder’ and mark for the attention of the legacy administration team at the address above.

We would be really grateful if you can include:

  • The full name and title of the deceased
  • Their last address – this will also allow us to prevent any future mailings as we know this can be distressing at a difficult time
  • The date of death
  • The executor’s name and contact details
  • A copy of the Will
  • Any information about the reason for the legacy.

We are regularly audited to make sure we administer all gifts in accordance with the guidelines set down by the Charity Commission. This is why we sometimes need to ask you to provide details about the estate such as a copy of the Will and estate accounts.

Tax exemption

All registered charities benefit from a range of inheritance tax exemptions. This means that the value of a legacy gift to the charity may increase without any costs to any other beneficiary.

For further information, contact our team or you can find out more on the website.
