We rely on gifts in wills to stay at the forefront of cancer care.
Leaving a gift in your will is like saving for a rainy day. It means we can plan better for the future by developing our facilities, invest in innovation to provide the latest treatments and support our vital research programme. Everywhere you look at Clatterbridge you will see the lasting difference made by the amazing people who have already left gifts in their Wills to the Charity, and why Clatterbridge is so important to the whole community.
A gift in your will doesn’t have to be large to make a lasting difference. Just a small proportion of what’s left after your friends and family have been provided for can play a big part in the care and treatment of future generations of local people with cancer in our region.
Leaving a gift in your will is a big decision, but it can be one that makes a very special and lasting difference to the lives of people with cancer, long into the future.
Once you’ve looked after your loved ones in your will, leaving a gift to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity helps us to bring the very best in cancer care to the people who need us.
It’s thanks to our supporters that The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre can change the lives of countless cancer patients each year.
“My name is Jim and I’ve decided to leave a gift in my Will to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. I’m aware that donations made from an estate are the largest single gift you are ever likely to make and to me, it is important that this money is used to really make a difference to cancer patients in this area.
“I know that once my own family are taken care of there will be some money over to support the Clatterbridge family who have been there for so many people over the years, including me.”
With one in two people now affected by cancer, the need for earlier diagnosis and more effective treatments for our patients goes on. Never has it been so important for us to continue our mission, to drive improved outcomes and experience through our unique network of specialist cancer care across Cheshire & Merseyside.
This is why we need your support more than ever. Your gift will help us to make a real difference to the future of cancer care.
How do I include The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity in my Will?
We recommend you use a solicitor to have your will drafted and you just need to let them know you would like to leave a gift to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. If you already have a will, it’s important to check that any gift you want to leave to a charity is properly recorded as any uncertainty over the cause can often cost time and ultimately divert funds from your generous donation to legal costs.
The full legal description that should always be used to describe the charity in a Will is:
The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust, Clatterbridge Road, Bebington, Wirral, CH63 4JY
Registered Charity No. 1051727
