While three quarters of us give regularly to charity in our lifetime, only seven per cent give to a charity in their wills.
Remember a Charity in Your Will Week runs from 12 to 18 September and is all about showing how much of a difference a gift in your will can make.
At Diabetes UK, gifts in wills make a huge difference to the lives of the millions of people living with diabetes. They help us fund research, campaign on key issues, and offer education and support to more people who need it.
There are now 4 million people with diabetes in the UK, a number that is growing rapidly, with 11.9 million people at increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. It can be a serious, even life-threatening condition – but the right support at the right time helps people to manage it and live long, healthy lives.
Talking about wills isn’t an easy conversation to have, and Diabetes UK understands that family and friends must always come first. All we ask is that you consider leaving a gift to Diabetes UK. Every gift will help improve the lives of people living with and at risk of diabetes.
If you would like to speak to our Gifts in Wills Team, call 020 7424 1853, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit diabetes.org.uk/legacies.
What better legacy could you leave to future generations?
