A week to remember Marie Curie in your Will

Today marks the start of Remember a Charity in your Will Week, which aims to inspire people to think about leaving a gift in their Wills for the charities that they hold dear.

At Marie Curie, gifts in Wills are so important to helping us continue to care for people living with a terminal illness. Indeed, gifts in Wills are our single largest income stream – last year we received £25 million from gifts in supporters’ Wills. If you think that that equates to funding one in two of our nurses or four out of our nine hospices in a calendar year, then you start to see just how big a difference leaving a gift in your Will can make.

People leave gifts in their Wills for many reasons. In the film below, Karen says the care her mum received inspired her to include Marie Curie in her Will. It’s also a really easy process. Geoff reckons it’s “the easiest thing I’ve done in my life.”

There are lots of ways to donate to Marie Curie. Some people like to climb mountains, cycle across continents or host Blooming Great Tea Parties. Others prefer to do something significantly less strenuous but no less appreciated – like leaving a gift in their Will.
