Supporting families of children and young
 people with cancer in the East Midlands

Gifts in Wills

Making a Will can help protect your loved ones when you are no longer here. It gives you the peace of mind that you have provided for family, friends and causes you feel passionately about.

Of course, your first consideration is to provide for family and friends. However, when the time is right for you to draft your Will, we kindly ask that you also consider PASIC – cancer support for children and young people.

Without voluntary contributions, PASIC is unable to provide much-needed support to families in the East Midlands impacted by childhood cancer. Leaving a gift in your Will to PASIC will help us fund vital services.

  •  A small percentage of your estate could pay for our Family Support Workers to provide more emotional support to families on local hospital wards.
  •  A gift in your Will could mean that more families get to spend time away from treatment and isolation at PASIC, events and activities.
  •  Your legacy could be used to provide grants to help families struggling with the additional cost of caring for a sick child.
How do I include PASIC in my Will?

When drafting your Will simply give your solicitor our charity name and number: PASIC – cancer support for children and young people; no. 1163662.

If you already have a Will and would like to add in a contribution to PASIC you shouldn’t have to rewrite it completely. A simple document called a Codicil can be completed and kept with your Will as a separate instruction. Your solicitor or financial adviser will be able to advise.

Pledge your legacy

If you do decide to leave a gift in your Will to PASIC you may consider pledging your legacy now. There is no obligation to tell us your intentions and you do not have to be specific about any details, but it will help us when planning for our future to know there is money promised. It will also give us chance to thank you properly and keep you up-to-date with latest news.

You can fill out our online Pledge form here.
