Will you leave a lasting legacy?
FatHEr’S day is the perfect time to celebrate all that our fathers have done for us over the years. Back in 1911 a young man called douglas Macmillan put a £10 birthday gift from his father to excellent use, when he founded what we now know as Macmillan Cancer Support.
Ninety nine years on, douglas’s legacy lives on as Macmillan continues to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer, providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support and working to improve cancer care. and so can you . . .
What would your legacy to the next generation be? once you have provided for family and friends in your will, could you help Macmillan to ensure everyone has access to the best cancer care in the future?
over a third of Macmillan’s services are funded by gifts left in wills, enabling us to provide vital medical, emotional, financial and practical support to half of the people living with cancer in the UK. to reach everyone affected by cancer, we need your help.
Whether you’re new to will writing or want to update your will, our guide to wills, legacies and Macmillan can help. I very much look forward to hearing from readers about receiving their free copy.
