Leave a gift

Leaving gift in your will to Glaucoma UK can help change the outlook for people with glaucoma.

Leave a gift in your will

Around 75% of our glaucoma support services are funded directly by the wonderful supporters who leave gifts in their wills. Leaving a gift in your will is a promise to be there for people living glaucoma in the future, and to make a real difference to the work we do and the support we give.

Naturally, you want to take care of family and loved ones first and foremost. But we hope that you might consider remembering the work of Glaucoma UK too.

A properly written will ensures everything is handled efficiently and reflects your wishes about the interests of your family, friends and the causes closest to you. Making a will ensures your wishes are carried out, but it’s also an opportunity to do something amazing.

Use our free will writing service

We offer a free will writing service, connecting you with a qualified solicitor in your local area. This makes writing your will simple and convenient.

All supporters aged 55 or over can access the free will writing service. You can have a simple will drafted free of charge by a local solicitor chosen from a UK-wide network of solicitors, all of whom are supporters of The Law Society. If you already have a will, you can take this opportunity to have it updated. There is no obligation to leave a gift to Glaucoma UK.

The offer applies to writing simple wills. If your chosen solicitor advises you that your will is more complicated, you will be asked to pay the solicitor for the extra work involved. Should this be the case, it is your decision whether to proceed with the service, and there is absolutely no obligation to continue if you don’t want to.

We understand that giving a gift of this sort is private between you and your family, but if you have any queries or would like to know more, we have a leaflet that gives useful information and advice on how to make a will. To request a copy or for a confidential discussion please email fundraising@glaucoma.uk or call 01233 64 81 64.
