Become a Forever Friend and make a lasting difference
Gifts in Wills are an amazing way of continuing your support, long into the future. Friends of the Cancer Centre are inviting you to become our Forever Friend and help future generations to live healthier, happier, longer lives.
No matter how big or small your gift, you will be doing something amazing and helping us fund vital work to support local people living with cancer and their families.
Every gift WILL make a difference
How you can become our Forever Friend
Making or updating a Will is straightforward but to ensure your Will is valid we recommend you use a qualified solicitor. Friends of the Cancer Centre can signpost you to a solicitor who will make a donation from their legal fee for writing your Will. Alternatively, the Law Society of Northern Ireland can help you find a solicitor: www.lawsoc-ni.org.
We have created a downloadable checklist to help you consider some aspects of your Will before meeting with your chosen solicitor. Please click HERE to download Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Will Planner.
If you would like Friends of the Cancer Centre to post you a pack, please contact Ana Wilkinson (028) 9069 9393, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
3 steps to making your Will
- List what you own
- Plan who you would like to include
- Decide who will write your Will
Friends of the Cancer Centre have a Will planner which you can download, print and complete to help guide you.
This guide can also be posted or emailed to you by contacting email@example.com
Types of gifts you could leave to Friends of the Cancer Centre
- A share of your estate or 'residuary gift'. Once your loved ones are provided for, you can leave a share of what remains to Friends of the Cancer Centre, which will be the most valuable gift to us.
- A cash gift or ‘pecuniary gift’. This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us.
- A ‘specific gift’ is a particular item that you wish to leave, such as an item of jewellery.
Gifts in a Will come in all shapes and sizes - with gifts ranging from £200 to £100,000, from 1% of an estate to 100% or anything left over after other gifts have been made. We promise that every penny gifted to Friends of the Cancer Centre will be put to the best possible use to support local cancer patients and their families.
