National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Pass on something wonderful this Remember A Charity Week
Writing your Will can help transform the lives of brain tumour patients in the future. This Remember A Charity Week, we’re sharing how leaving a gift in your Will can help to sustain our vital work to find a cure for this devastating disease.
Many charities rely on gifts in Wills to sustain their work into the future. Last year, Breast Cancer Now and Blood Cancer UK reported legacy income of £1.7 million and £6.1 million respectively, representing 4% and 42% of their overall income.
In the last financial year, legacies accounted for less than 2% of our total income.
Our mission is to establish a network of seven dedicated Centres of Excellence here in the UK. By pledging to leave Brain Tumour Research a gift in your Will, you can help us ensure the sustainability of our research programmes in the future, enabling continuous research which will get us closer to a cure.
Ashley Bailey, Director of Finance and Operations, said: “A gift in your Will is a wonderful way to provide certainty for our work into the future. At Brain Tumour Research, we’re thankful to those supporters who pledge to support us in this way.
“Making a Will can be daunting so, to make it easier for you, we have teamed up with the National Free Wills Network, meaning we are able to offer you the opportunity to have a simple Will written or updated free of charge.”
