Why leave a gift in your will?

Elle looks after people who have decided to leave us a gift in their will. She explains why legacies are so important to our work.

Wills are vital in the fight against lung disease. By leaving a gift to us in your will, you can make sure that we can continue our vital work to help those living with a lung condition.

Hope for the future

Your gift will help fund research into lung conditions, so there’s hope for the future. Research into lung disease is hugely underfunded compared to similar conditions. That means we have some way to go to end the pain caused by diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), mesothelioma, lung cancer, asthma and many more.

With your help, we can make a real difference, by investing in research so scientists can learn more about these conditions. You'll help fund our vital services and make sure people living with a lung condition have a voice.

Walter is leaving a gift in his will.

His wife suffered from bronchiectasis almost all her life, before sadly passing away. He’s says: "I'm leaving a gift in my will because it's a cause close to my heart. I’ve lost so many people to lung disease and it’s important that things change." 

The more people, like Walter, who leave us a gift in their will, the more we can do to give hope, help and a voice to people living with a lung condition.
