Bequests are so vital
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.
