At Wessex Cancer Trust, we understand that the people you elect to remember in your Will can be a very private affair. For many people, leaving a gift to a charity in their Will is a natural extension of the support they have shown during their lifetime.

What types of gift can you leave?

A cash gift. This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us. It's known as a 'pecuniary gift'.

A share of your estate. After you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a share of what remains to charity. This is known as a ‘residuary gift’.

A gift in trust. You can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time. When the time has ended, the gift can be passed on to other recipients, such as a charity.

A specific gift. This can be specific personal possessions, stocks and shares or works of art.

Your wishes regarding the use of any gift are very important to us. Our development team can speak to you in confidence about areas of our work you might like to support. Any discussion is in no way compulsory.

Our legacies brochure explains more about donating in this way and provides further information on the next steps.

If you would like to inform us of your intention to leave a gift in your Will or if you would like more information on how to do so, please contact us:
