A gift in your will

Help us save and change lives

Firstly, everyone should have a will, it's the only way you can be sure that your loved ones are protected when you are no longer around. The complexity of family life and legislative changes make it vital too, to review your will at regular intervals. We would advise anyone making or updating their will to get in touch with a practising solicitor. More information on wills can be found at You may like to check out a new service,TotallyFreeWills, designed to offer standard will making online, free of charge.

Once family and friends are remembered, a gift to B&CR - no matter what size - is invaluable. We received our first legacy gift of just over £100 in 2001 and in 2017 our largest gift to date of £220,000. This gift ensured that we could continue to support our PhD studentships, the talented young people who will make the breakthroughs of the future. Every gift we receive in a will will help to fund the best science to save and change lives.

Make a Pledge

Gifts left in wills are really important to Bowel & Cancer Research. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.

Leave a Legacy

If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.

To leave a legacy to Bowel & Cancer Research please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.

Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.

If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Bowel & Cancer Research directly they will be happy to discuss this with you.
