The MS Trust relies on voluntary donations and fundraising to support its work. Each year we need to raise over £2m to provide our vital services and support for people with MS, their families, friends, and for health professionals. All of our services are provided free of charge and we receive no government or NHS funding to provide them.
That's why legacy gifts are so important in helping us to continue to support people in the UK living with MS.
From 9th to the 15th September 2019, Remember a Charity, the MS Trust and over 200 other charities will be joining forces to raise awareness of what can be achieved thanks to people leaving gifts in their wills – inviting you to ‘pass on something wonderful'.
Making a will and leaving a gift to the MS Trust is easier than you might think. After taking care of your family and friends, even a small gift can make a huge impact.
A gift in your will would help us continue to deliver our vital services for generations to come:
- MS specialist nurses
- Advanced MS champions
- Professional enquiry team
- Evidence based publications
- Training for healthcare professionals.
Rob Carter, director of fundraising and marketing says;
“Like many charities, the income we receive from people who leave us a gift in their will is essential to our work. We know that many of our supporters would like to remember us in their will, but simply just don't get around to it. Remember a Charity Week gives those people the opportunity to see what a difference a gift in their will would make.”
A gift in your will would make a real difference, and help ensure that no-one faces MS alone. You can pass on something wonderful helping people affected by MS to receive the specialist care and support they need. Giving today can make a world of difference tomorrow.
If you are considering leaving a gift in your will to the MS Trust or you would like more information on how to do so, find more information here or call 01462 476707.
