Leaving a bequest to Hope Horizons will help us help others face the fight head-on, with dignity and courage. Leaving a bequest to Hope Horizons is a gift that will live on for years after you.
Why should I make a bequest in my Will? We have all been affected, either personally or through someone close to us, by cancer. Hope Horizons endeavours to make that journey more bearable through support, education and wellbeing services, by giving dignity, support and courage to those affected. Leaving a bequest may add dignity and meaning to a life well lived.
What will Hope Horizons do with my gift? Hope Horizons cannot do this without the support of the wider community, and a legacy in your Will will ensure this essential work can be continued. With a legacy donation, you will pass on a gift to those who most need it, at a time they can least afford it.
Why should I do this? Why should I consider leaving a gift in my Will? Many people are generous in nature, but are unable to give as freely as they may wish during their lifetime. Including a bequest in your Will ensures you are finally able to fulfil some of the personal goals that may remain close to your heart. After family and other loved ones, of course. A bequest such as this will make a difference to the lives of many individuals living with cancer, and how they go about tackling this physical, emotional and psychological journey.

How do I do this? First, talk to your family and friends. This is a very personal decision to make, but you may be surprised the support you get from the most unexpected avenues. Once you have decided what kind of gift you want to leave, speak to a solicitor to create or update your Will. If you already have a Will, you can simply add an addendum to pledge your gift. Called a codicil, if drafted properly, this will be considered part of the Will.
