After remembering your family and loved ones, please consider making a gift to Anaphylaxis UK in your will, to make a real difference to the lives of people with serious allergies.

By doing so, you will help us to fund our work into the future, so we can continue to provide support and guidance to families, health professionals, those in industry and education. With your help we will be able to increase our provision and accelerate our ultimate aim of creating a safe environment for everyone at risk of serious allergies across the UK.

How can I include the Anaphylaxis UK in my will? 

Any gift you leave can play a big part in the future of our charity. You can leave a gift in a number of ways:

  • A residuary bequest is a share, or possibly all, of the balance of your estate. This means that once family and friends have been provided for the remainder or a proportion of your estate can be pledged to your special charity.
  • A pecuniary bequest means that you pledge a specific sum of money to your charity.

How do I make a will? 

You can write your will yourself, but we would strongly advise seeking professional legal advice. You also need to have your will formally witnessed and signed to make it legally valid. We have a will writing guide to help you and save time when meeting with your solicitor or will writer, which you can download here.

We are partners with Guardian Angel, one of the fastest growing online will writers in the UK. They’ve taken the headache out of will writing with a quick and easy service where each will is checked over by a legal expert. Write your Will for free by using the voucher code ANAPH-FREE. Guardian Angel also offers telephone and face to face will writing services for those that would rather speak to a solicitor. To find out more and to book an appointment, call the team on 0800 773 4014.

‘Find a Solicitor’ is a free service run by the Law Society for anyone looking for information about organisations or people providing legal services in England and Wales that are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)The Law Society of Scotland also has a search database on their website.

How do I update my existing will?

If you want to update your will, you can either make a legal alteration, called a ‘codicil’, or make a new will. We have a codicil form to help you when meeting with your solicitor or will writer, which you can download here.

We would strongly advise that you don’t make changes to your existing will without professional help.
