Leaving a Legacy
Your Gift, their Future.
After providing for your loved ones, a gift to Leeds Cares is another way of showing how much you care – because small or large, your gift will help to improve health and wellbeing for your family and everyone in Leeds, across Yorkshire and beyond.
Many of the gifts we receive are from people who want to ‘give something back’ to the hospital out of gratitude for the care and support they may have received or to say thank you for the care of a loved one.
It is important that we can ensure funds are used where the need is greatest and we work closely with our NHS colleagues to fund the projects that will have the biggest impact on health and wellbeing.
You can help enable this by giving your gift to be used wherever the need is greatest.
Hear from Jack’s mum Claire about how a gift left in a will has given their family hope.
Of course sometimes people prefer to leave a gift to a particular area of work or a part of the hospital with which they have a connection – something that’s close to their heart.
We can help with both – providing guidance on how to word your gift to ensure your wishes are met.

Have your Will written in exchange for a donation to Leeds Cares
“I have been a patient at Leeds Cancer Centre for some years now, during which time I have had many tests and treatments. I am very conscious that just a few years ago, before such rapid progress in diagnosis and treatments, I would probably not have survived for so long. The staff and diagnostic equipment have impressed me immensely and I am left with a deep sense of gratitude. I am pleased to have made a legacy pledge for Leeds Cares in the hope that it can help towards the purchase and maintenance of specialist equipment.”
