Be­quests are so vi­tal

The Galloway News - - GALLOW WAY VIEW - Si­mon Gille­spie Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion

Sir – As chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Bri­tish heart foun­da­tion I see first-hand the in­cred­i­ble im­pact gifts left in wills make to the char­ity.

Re­search funded by the Bhf has helped halve death rates from heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­eases over the past 50 years and so much of our work has only been pos­si­ble thanks to the in­di­vid­u­als who have re­mem­bered us in their will.

I’d like to en­cour­age peo­ple to down­load our free wills guide and I must take the op­por­tu­nity to thank all of the gen­er­ous sup­port­ers – past, present and fu­ture – for their con­tri­bu­tions.

We couldn’t make break­throughs such as heart trans­plants with­out your gen­eros­ity and it is be­cause of you that we con­tinue to fund £100 mil­lion of re­search ev­ery year.
