Leave a gift in your Will

Every bequest helps us get closer to our goal, to double the survival rate for Pancreatic Cancer by 2020.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a powerful and generous way to help improve the outcomes for patients with Pancreatic Cancer.

Every bequest helps us get closer to our goal, to double the survival rate for Pancreatic Cancer by 2020.

The bequest can be made when you write your Will or added in a codicil to your existing Will. A codicil is a document which changes the terms of your existing Will, without the need to make a new Will.

It is strongly recommended that you consult your solicitor when making a Will or changing its terms under a codicil. This will ensure that the bequest is properly documented in a legally binding way.
