Leave us a legacy
Preventing life-threatening group B Strep infections in future babies
Leaving a gift to Group B Strep Support in your will helps to ensure that we can continue to work to prevent group B Strep infections in babies, continue to improve doctors’ and midwives’ knowledge about group B Strep and support families who need us.
Presently preventing group B Strep infections in newborn babies is centred around expectant parents being informed about group B Strep and able to choose what care is right for them (and their babies) to minimise the risk of these infections in their babies.
In the future, there will be vaccines available that will not only prevent these infections in newborn babies, but also prevent these infections developing before birth, and in the weeks and months afterwards.
After remembering your loved ones in your will, please do consider us a gift - it will help give future generations the best chance of a full and happy life.
There are several different ways of leaving a gift in your will:
- A pecuniary legacy is a fixed sum of money. There is no minimum amount that can be left.
- A residuary legacy is a gift of the whole or a share of whatever remains of your estate after all other gifts have been distributed to family and friends and any debts are paid off.
- A specific gift is a tangible, such as a house, piece of jewellery, or car.
We would recommend when making or amending a will to see a solicitor, who can best advise you.
Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Group B Strep Support. 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.
Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Group B Strep Support to confidently estimate future support for their cause.
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 Group B Strep Support 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 Group B Strep Support directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
