Leaving a Gift in Your Will 

Leaving a legacy in your will is a special way of ensuring the MS Therapy Centre Beds & Northants will be here to continue changing the lives of those living with MS, their families and friends, when they need us most in the future.

The therapies and support given at the MS Therapy Centre come at a cost each year, and with no funding being received from the government, we rely greatly upon the generosity and support of our members, the local community and our supporters.

So, if the time is right for you to make your will, by leaving the MS Therapy Centre a legacy, you will be helping us to continue providing essential support to people living with MS for years to come. Every gift has an impact and whatever you choose to give could make a real difference.

Your legacy will cost you nothing today, but will make a world of difference to those needing our services in the future.

Making a will does not have to be complicated or expensive, it ensures your family and loved ones are cared for in the way you intend, and it gives you the chance to leave money to a cause close to your heart.

To discuss leaving a gift in your Will or for more information please call 01234 325781

or email [email protected].

Note: We recommend that you seek the guidance of a solicitor when you make your will or add a Codicil, so you can be sure your wishes can be carried out.

Please see our lealet – A Gift in your will for all of the information that you need to make your legacy count.

What words do I need to use in my will to leave a gift to The Beds and Northants MS Therapy Centre?

Leaving a gift in your will is a special way of ensuring that we’ll be able to continue providing professional therapies and support for people with MS and their families in the future.

There are three main ways to leave a gift to The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre in your Will.

Residuary Legacy

After making provision for family and friends, you can leave whatever is left in your estate – the residue – to The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre or other charities, should you wish.

 A suitable clause for inclusion in your will might be: “My Trustees shall hold my residuary estate and the income thereof upon trust [as to a % share] for the charity known as The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre, registered charity number 802510, of Bradbury House, 155 Barkers Lane, Bedford. MK41 9RX, for its general purposes (the receipt of the person who professes to be the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the charity to be sufficient discharge to my trustees)”.

Cash Legacy

Cash donations are always welcome. However, as cash donations tend to decrease in value over time, you can avoid this by index linking your gift.

A suitable clause for inclusion in your Will might be: “I give to The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre registered charity number 802510, of Bradbury House, 155 Barkers Lane, Bedford MK41 9RX, the sum of xxxx pounds (in words) (£xxxx in figures) for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of the person who professes to be the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the charity to be sufficient discharge to my trustees)”.

Specific Legacy

Specific items such as property, shares, jewellery or furniture can be gifted.

 A suitable clause for inclusion in your Will might be: “I give to The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre, registered charity number 802510, of Bradbury House, 155 Barkers Lane, Bedford, MK41 9RX, my (short description of property given) for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of the person who professes to be the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the charity to be sufficient discharge to my trustees)”.

Adding a Codicil

To add The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre to your Will:

A small change to a Will is called a Codicil. If you have already made a Will and you want to add a gift to The Beds & Northants MS Therapy Centre, please complete a codicil form (download here) and take it to your solicitor. The solicitor will add the Codicil to your existing Will or, amend and reprint the Will if it is stored electronically. There may be a small charge for this service.
