Why is writing a Will so important?

Writing a will is really important. It means you can decide what happens after you’re gone and make sure your loved ones are taken care of. Making a Will doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive and gives you peace of mind that everything is in order.

If you don’t make a Will, the government will decide what happens to your money and assets. This can cause arguments or disputes, and might even mean family members miss out. Not having a Will can cause extra stress and expense for your loved ones. By making a Will, you can make an upsetting time, a little easier.

It’s easy to put off making a Will but it’s one of those jobs we should all do. As well as making sure your loved ones are taken care of, many people also decide to leave a gift to charity, so the support for the causes they care about lives on as their legacy.

If you write your will with us, you don’t have to leave a gift, but we are thrilled that so many people choose to do so

‘’If you’re reading this you are probably thinking about making a Will with Tenovus Cancer Care. And you might even be thinking about leaving us a gift. I want you to know that your gift will be the promise of hope for those suffering from cancer in Wales for generations to come. Thank you for helping us to care for those who need us.’’

Judi Rhys (MBE) Chief Executive, Tenovus Cancer Care.
