Leaving a Legacy
Leave a lasting legacy of hope for people living with cancer
Your values can live on, helping others when you’re gone
Your legacy reflects your values – the charity you choose should reflect those values in a meaningful way. Leaving a gift in your Will (a legacy) is an amazing way to make a long-lasting difference for the many families and communities affected by cancer who are helped by Hope for Tomorrow and our NHS Trust partners. Like you, we know the toll that cancer can have on people living through it. As such, we are honoured to make such a difference to people’s lives, thanks to our supporters.
A gift to Hope for Tomorrow will help us to provide mobile cancer care to more patients and look at new ways of delivering cancer services. Your legacy will ensure the lives of people living with cancer aren’t dictated by their treatment, giving people more time with their loved ones.
Having a valid Will means what you own goes to the people and causes you care most about. We understand your family, friends and loved ones come first, and rightly so. What we do ask is, once you have accounted for your family and friends, will you consider leaving a gift to Hope for Tomorrow to help cancer patients receive the treatment they need, where they need it?

Making or updating your will
You can leave a legacy to best suit your situation – there are three main types to consider:
- Include a percentage of the remainder of your estate, known as the residue. After you have provided for family and friends, just a small percentage will make a huge difference. This type of gift won’t lose its value over time.
- Nominate a percentage of your estate that you would like Hope for Tomorrow to receive. Like the above option, this gift will keep its value over time.
- Choose to leave a specific amount of money, real estate, shares etc. to Hope for Tomorrow.
Below is some suggested wording for you to use:
“I give and bequeath…
- the whole (or…%) of the residue of my estate
- the whole (or …%) of my estate
- the sum of £(amount)
- details of a particular asset – such as shares or property
free of all charges to Hope for Tomorrow of 101 The Waterfront, Stonehouse Business Park, Sperry Way, Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, GL10 3UT, registered charity number 1094677, absolutely for its general charitable purposes to use to deliver mobile cancer care. The official receipt of the Chief Executive or other authorised officer of the Trustee is an absolute discharge of my executors.”
