Gift for the Future events
Every year, we run a programme of events across the UK to give you the chance to find out how your gift helps. Our 2018 events will be announced in January.About our events
Why come to an event?
If you're thinking about leaving a gift in your Will to Marie Curie, we'd love to have the chance to meet you, and to explain how your gift could help local people living with a terminal illness and their families.
Coming to an event is also a useful opportunity to ask any questions you have about writing a Will. If you’ve already chosen to include a gift to Marie Curie in your Will, we’d love the opportunity to meet and thank you in person.
All our events are free, are held in beautiful locations around the UK and include refreshments. Look out for our 2018 programme of events, which will be announced in January.
Are the events free?
Yes, all of our Gift for the Future events are free to attend.
Can I bring a guest?
Yes, of course. We’re happy for you to invite a friend or two to come with you and hear more about Marie Curie. If you’d like to bring a guest, please let us know and we can reserve a place for them.
Do I have to book?
Yes. In order to make sure we have space and adequate catering, it’s essential to book because numbers are limited.
Will there be food at the event?
Are these events costly for Marie Curie?
We're able to host our Gift for the Future events at a low cost thanks to the generosity of the venues we're working with.
What if I can no longer attend?
Please let us know as soon as you can if you are no longer able to attend, so that we can offer your place(s) to someone else and save on catering costs.
I can’t make the date – can I still meet a legacy advisor?
I’ve registered to attend an event, what happens now?
Once you’ve registered to attend one of our events, you will receive a confirmation from the local legacy advisor for you to bring with you on the day. This will include directions to the venue.
