Leaving a gift in your Will for Huntington’s Disease Association

Your Will is an opportunity to leave a future gift for the people and causes you care most about. 

Your family and loved ones always come first, but if you are considering remembering the Huntington’s Disease Association in your Will, thank you!

 

We are hosting a free online session for those who wish to find out more about our free Will writing service. Our Gift for the Future event takes place on Tuesday 29 March as part of Make a Will Month.

 

Making a Will


Making a Will is so important. A Will makes it much easier for your family or friends to sort everything out when you die – without a Will, the process can be more time consuming and stressful for your loved ones.

The latest research* from 2018 shows that almost 60% of us in the UK have not made a Will.

If you don’t write a Will, everything you own will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law – which isn’t always the way you might want.

Writing a Will is especially important if you have children or other family members who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family or your favourite charity, such as the Huntington’s Disease Association.

 

How your gift could make a difference


We are incredibly grateful for every gift, large or small we receive at the Huntington’s Disease Association. Our work supporting people, families and carers affected by Huntington’s disease simply could not happen without the generosity of our supporters.

Income we receive from gifts in Wills allows us to make plans for the future, to ensure that we’ll be there for people affected by Huntington’s disease for years to come.

In the past year, we have supported thousands of people affected by Huntington’s disease – from one-to-one support through our Specialist Huntington’s Advisory Service to our specialised weekend events such as the Family Weekend and JHD Weekend; our booklets and guides are available for health and social care professionals as well as individuals seeking more information on the many different aspects of Huntington’s disease and our Welfare Grants scheme provides direct financial support to those who desperately need it. The demand for our services grows each year.

 

Write your Will for FREE


Writing a Will is a very personal decision and there may be a lot to think about. Don’t worry if you haven’t made all these decisions yet, a solicitor can help you explore all your options and make the decisions that are right for you.

As a member of the National Free Wills Network, we can offer you the opportunity to have a simple Will written or updated free of charge, through a network of solicitors, local to you, all across the U.K.

If you choose to leave a gift to the Huntington's Disease Association in your Will, the gift will cost you nothing during your lifetime but could one day make a difference to the lives of families living with Huntington’s disease across the UK. Whilst it would be wonderful if you choose to leave a charitable gift in your Will, there is no obligation to do so.
