Gifts in wills

Give an enduring gift to everyone affected by myeloma.

A will is one of the most important documents you’ll ever write. It’s where you can express your wishes for what will happen once you die. No matter the size of legacy you choose to leave, your kindness and generosity will help us make a difference to many myeloma patients and their families across the UK.

There are a number of different ways you can remember Myeloma UK in your will:

  • Share in the residue of your estate. Residue is whatever is left after all debts, funeral expenses, certain other costs and tax, and any other legacies have been deducted
  • Pecuniary legacy. This is a fixed sum of money
  • Specific legacy. A particular named item – for example, a piece of jewellery, furniture or a painting
  • Contingent legacy. A legacy that is dependent upon an event, which may, or may not, happen – for example, a legacy which only applies if other beneficiaries named in the will die before the person who wrote the will does

Leave a legacy

A solicitor can guide you through writing your will and identifying who you want to benefit from the money you leave behind. To discuss leaving a gift in your Will to Myeloma UK call the fundraising team on 0131 557 3332 or email
