Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Charity

Legacy Giving

Gifts in Wills are vital to Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Charity.

From funding cutting-edge equipment, projects to make our hospital a more patient-friendly environment and research to improve our understanding of illness, we strive to ensure our patients receive the very best care and treatment.

Gifts in Wills from our generous donors have provided over a quarter of our family of hospital’s income over the last ten years.

You can leave a gift in your Will to any individual hospital within our Trust and, in some cases, to specific departments or areas of research. If you would like to talk to us about leaving a gift in your Will in more detail, please call Siobhan McKeever on 0161 701 6241 or email siobhan.mckeever@mft.nhs.uk.

Wills are important.

Everyone should have a Will because should you die without having made one, your property, money and possessions will be divided according to the law rather than your wishes. However, a Will is about so much more than simply dividing your assets. It is an opportunity to reflect on causes that have been important to you during your life, share them with others and to continue supporting them after you are gone.

If you do have a Will, it’s important to keep it up to date. If your family circumstances or your wishes change then it is important to update your Will to reflect this. You don’t need to write a new Will to do this; you can add a codicil to your existing one.
