How to leave a gift in your will

You can make a difference to the causes that are most important to you, either by amending an existing will or when you write one for the first time.

How to include a gift in your will

You can choose to leave a proportion of your estate (Residuary Bequest) or a set amount (Pecuniary Bequest). 

» Click here to download suggested wording for both Residuary and Pecuniary Bequests.

Amending a will requires a codicil form, we would recommend speaking to your solicitor to help with this.
