Leave a gift in your Will

No one knows what the future holds, and life-changing moments can happen when you least expect them. Making a Will and letting your family and friends know your wishes is vital, and it can be a lot more affordable and straightforward than you may think.

Why make a Will?

• It ensures that you can decide what happens to your personal possessions
• It can prevent disagreement about who inherits what from your estate
• If you live with a partner but you’re not married, you can ensure that your partner and any children are adequately provided for
• It can allow you to deal with any necessary tax planning to avoid or reduce inheritance tax
• It can provide a way for you to continue helping the charities/good causes that you support during your lifetime

Remembering St Ann’s in your Will

You can make a real difference to the lives of many local people by leaving a gift in your Will to St Ann’s. Gifts can be big or small – we appreciate every single one. We simply couldn’t continue to provide all our services without the generosity of our amazing supporters who leave us a gift.

Legacies of all sizes are a vital source of funding for St Ann’s, helping to ensure we can continue to care for our community, both now and into the future. Your gift could help to keep a person well for as long as possible, helping them to make the most of the time they have left.

Frequently asked questions about Wills:

Who should make a Will?

Everyone should have a Will, but certain people are more in need of a Will than others, for example couples who are cohabiting, families with minor children
or step children and those with large estates.

What is an Executor?

Executors are people chosen by you to deal with your estate after your death. They’ll collect in your assets, pay your liabilities and distribute the estate
according to the terms of your Will.

What is a Mirror Will?

This is when you and your spouse or partner make Wills which contain the same provisions.

Can I change my Will?

Yes, you can update your Will at any time. You can either make a new one or add a Codicil which will be kept with the original Will.
