Did you know that gifts left in wills fund over a third of all Macmillan Cancer Support's services?
Surprised? Most people are which is why Macmillan hosted a legacy reception event recently at Madingley Hall. The event provided a rare opportunity to hear lots about Macmillan’s work in the local area, meet Macmillan’s amazing professionals, as well as the regional Macmillan legacy adviser Nancy Kirkham.
A couple of guests commented “I have left a gift in my will because Macmillan supported my mother and the way you use funds is so broad and appropriate”. “I intend to leave Macmillan a legacy because they supported myself and family during the time of a cancer diagnosis”.
Gifts in wills are vital in enabling Macmillan to provide medical, emotional, financial and practical support now and for future generations of people affected by cancer.
If you’re interested in finding out more information on leaving a gift to Macmillan in your will, please get in touch with Nancy on 020 8222 9030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org , or visit Macmillan's legacy pages.
