Watch our video for more information on how simple it can be to include a gift to The Brain Tumour Charity in your Will.
It can be comforting to know that making a Will is one way of planning for the future and making sure that your loved ones are looked after in way you intended.
By writing a Will, you are taking an important step to ensuring the people and causes you care about are looked after in the way you intended. We understand that writing or updating your Will can seem like a daunting task. To help you get started, we have put together a Will-writing guide, codicil, suggested wording for your Will, and a fact sheet to guide you through making or updating your Will.
Prepare for your meeting with your local solicitor or Will writer by taking a look at our downloadable guides.
If you would like to add a gift to The Brain Tumour Charity in your existing Will, you can easily do so by using this codicil form. Your codicil must be signed and dated by you, in the presence of two adult witnesses who are not family, to make sure your gift is legally recognised. It's a good idea to send a copy of your Will and codicil to trusted friend and indicate where the original is being kept. You can, of course, change your mind at any time should your circumstances change.
If you are writing a Will for the first time or rewriting your Will because it's outdated, you can take the suggested wording below to your professional Will writer or solicitor, who will make sure a gift to The Brain Tumour Charity is included. We have provided suggested wording for the types of gift you could consider.
