Let your legacy live on through making children's lives better
Making a gift in your will to Alder Hey will make a huge difference to our sick patients. We understand that first and foremost you want to look after your family and friends, but if you have anything to spare after that we would be really appreciative to receive it.
Your money will go a long way. It will enable us to provide support to the children we treat, and their families, it will fund our pioneering research and development projects and also pay for new state of the art equipment and facilities. It will help children like 5 year old Cameron Matheison, who has already had to have three major heart operations due to the heart condition he was born with.
All gifts that you leave to Alder Hey Children’s Charity will be exempt from inheritance tax. We would recommend that you use a solicitor when drafting up your will as this will ensure your wishes are adhered to and highly reduce the risk of any disputes over your estate. All you have to do is inform your solicitor you would like to leave a gift to Alder Hey Children’s Charity and provide our address and registered charity number:
Alder Hey Children’s Charity, Eaton Road, Liverpool, L12 2AP (Reg. charity No 1049275).
If you are thinking of leaving a gift in your will for Alder Hey, or already have, we would love to hear from you so we can thank you. We like to thank all our donors to let them know just how much we appreciate their help. We will also be able to answer any further questions you may have.
It is important you make a will to ensure your wishes are adhered to after you are gone. It will guarantee all your family and friends are looked after and there are no disputes over your legacy.
You may not think there is any point in making a will if you do not consider yourself to be wealthy however people are often surprised how much their estate is worth once everything from your house and furniture to your jewellery and pension has been added up.
We would highly recommend you enlist a solicitor to help you make your will. Professional advice is not as expensive as you may think and will ensure that your will is accurate.
