Why gifts in Wills are important
Gifts in Wills are hugely important to Tenovus Cancer Care and make up a large part of our income. They help us fund around a million pounds of life-saving and life-changing cancer research every year. Whatever your gift, even 1%, can help fund the cancer research of tomorrow, and help us get a little closer to a world without cancer.
Why writing a Will is important
Writing a Will is really important as it gives you peace of mind, and means you can decide what happens after you’re gone.
If you don’t make a Will, the government will decide what happens to your money and assets. This could cause arguments or disputes, and 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.
