Leaving a gift in your Will

Donations or gifts from supporters Wills, sometimes called Legacies, are a vital source of support for us. These gifts allow us to plan for the future and secure vital services at the Hospital. Legacies are free of Inheritance Tax and capital Gains Tax. You are never to young or old to make a will. The sooner you do it, the sooner you can be confident that everything is in order. 

Making a will ensures that your loved ones and the causes that matter to you are taken care of. If you would like information on making a gift in your will to Velindre, please contact us.
