Leaving a gift in your Will
Many charities receive the bulk of their income from legacies (gifts left in people’s wills) from supporters who like to remember them. After providing for family and friends, leaving a legacy in your will to GAIN is a tremendous and thoughtful way of supporting our work and is exempt from inheritance tax.
If you would like to remember GAIN and have not made your will, it is advisable to see a solicitor or other professional and give your instructions. If you have made a will, the simplest method of amending it is to write a codicil, sign it in the presence of witnesses and keep it safe with your existing will.
GAIN is delighted to tell you we have partnered with McClure Solicitors to provide a Will-writing service for our members, friends, volunteers and staff who want to write, update or review their will. This service is FREE to both you and GAIN
McClure Solicitors will write you a free Will. They also offer a free Will Review service, a discounted Lasting Power of Attorney and a full price Family Protection Trust. They are able to offer free Wills because over 50% of their free Will clients choose to use them for another paid for service. You will be asked to consider making a donation for a charity of your choice, which we hope is GAIN.
Founded in 1853 McClure Solicitors is a national company with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverclyde, Cardiff, London, Birmingham, Exeter, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Plymouth, Southport and Truro. They do not yet operate in Northern Ireland. McClure will consider a home visit if you are unable to travel to their offices. That’s also free.
At the appointment to make your Will, you will be asked if you would like to make a charitable donation in return for the service. You are under no obligation to do so, but if you do, McClure will send your donation on to the charity with a Gift Aid declaration where applicable.
There is no obligation to leave a gift to GAIN when using the Free Will Service, but we would be very grateful if you consider it. A gift in a Will, no matter how small, would help us to provide the practical, emotional and financial help that people affected by GBS, CIDP and the associated inflammatory neuropathies rely on.
To arrange your consultation, call McClure Solicitors on Freephone 0800 852 1999. Please mention GAIN.
As we rely entirely on voluntary donations, legacies are vital to us. Thank you
