A gift for the future - leave a legacy

What a Legacy Means to Breast Cancer UK

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer amongst women in the UK. The lifetime risk of a women developing the disease is now 1 in 8 up from 1 in 9 just a decade ago.   Breast Cancer UK is the only national charity dedicated to the prevention of breast cancers caused by exposure to the carcinogenic and hazardous chemicals in our environment and everyday products. We campaign for improvements in legislation and public health policies which reduce our exposure to chemicals associated with breast cancer; raise awareness amongst members of the public about the links between exposure to harmful chemicals and breast cancers; provide practical solutions to help people reduce their risk; and, support scientific research into the links between breast cancer and harmful chemicals.

We are completely independent and rely on support from the public. By donating to us or leaving a gift in your Will, you too can help prevent breast cancer.

Advice on making a Will

  • Breast Cancer UK always recommends that you consult a solicitor when drafting your will. This is because they are best placed to advise you on issues such as changes in inheritance tax as well as making sure you are leaving your estate as you would want it.

Please keep in touch

  • If you have made or are going to make your will and are leaving a legacy to Breast Cancer UK, please let us know. Pledges help us to plan ahead and we would also like to be able to thank you now for thinking about Breast Cancer UK in the future.

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 Breast Cancer UK 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 Breast Cancer UK directly they will be happy to discuss this with you.
