Leave a gift in your will

What legacy will you leave? A gift in your will has the power to change so many people’s lives

Leaving a gift donation in your will is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy. Every gift, whatever the size, helps us transform care for the generations to come through pioneering research, cutting edge technology and innovative new treatments. Get in touch with us or your solicitor for more information.

Help transform care for generations to come

Addenbrooke’s began with a gift in a will – and now you can play a part in our wonderful history of care. We all need some help from the medical profession at some point in our lives. Whether it’s for a serious medical condition, a minor accident or the birth of our children. At these times we’d give anything for the very best medical care available.

The fact is, a gift left to Addenbrooke’s in a will makes a huge difference to improving patient care – allowing us to offer the best treatment, delivered by the best staff, in the most modern facilities and with the most up-to-date equipment. We believe it's nothing less than every patient deserves.  Download our brochure to find out more about what a gift in a will can achieve or watch our short film below.

Help to deliver the very best care for generations to come.

You don’t need to leave a fortune, or decide between Addenbrooke’s and your family, but anything you do leave will help to keep delivering the very best care to everyone who needs it – for generations to come. If you do choose, or have already chosen, to leave a gift in your will to Addenbrooke's, please let us know to help us plan for the future.

It’s easier to leave a gift than you might think.

A gift can be made simply by adding a Codicil to an existing will or alternatively you can make a new will.

One supporter's story - “Thank you and keep on going!”
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and was treated at the Cambridge Breast Unit. At a time when you need every morsel of help you can get, the nursing and medical staff were fantastic, and did their utmost to help me.

I cannot find fault with the treatment I received and the experience was as good as it could have been. I would recommend the Breast Unit to anyone who needed treatment. 
I’ve been fortunate not to have a reoccurrence but knowing that Addenbrooke’s is right here on my doorstep offers a level of reassurance, should I ever need them again. 

I am just really, really grateful. The Breast Unit will be treating patients for generations to come and if my gift can make that even a little easier, then it is worth it. Leaving a gift in my will is my way of saying thank you and keep on going.”
