Your greatest achievement could be yet to come

Writing your Will

It’s important to have a Will, it helps make sure your loved ones are taken care of and your wishes are clear. Here are some different ways to write your Will, so you can find the best way for you.

You don’t have to leave a gift to Heart Research UK to use either of the free services but we are incredibly grateful to you if you do consider helping us in this way. Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the best ways to help stop people developing and dying from heart disease in the future. Gifts in Wills fund over half of our work every year and all gifts, large or small, make a huge difference to our work. Just giving 1% of what you leave to Heart Research UK will help us to prevent, treat and cure heart disease for years to come.

Use a solicitor

We recommend you use a solicitor, or a solicitor checks your Will. They will help make sure your wishes are clear and can help you include a gift to Heart Research UK.

You can find a local solicitor on the Law Society website’s search. Under issues choose Wills, trusts and probate and then enter your location to find a solicitor convenient for you.
