Any gift, even a small percentage of your estate, puts us in a stronger position to help the most critically ill and injured people in an emergency. There are several types of gifts you can choose to leave us.

Inheritance tax is based on the value of a person’s estate upon their death. The ‘nil rate band’ or ‘inheritance tax threshold’ is the value of the estate that is exempt from inheritance tax. You could decrease the amount of inheritance tax by 4% if you choose to leave 10% or more of your estate to charity. For further information about inheritance tax, visit www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax. For all tax advice, we suggest you get in touch with a solicitor.
