Leave a legacy

"After recently losing a dear cousin and two close friends, thoughts of my own mortality made me want to help those shunned by society. I have the honour of being Vice President of The Leprosy Mission and have offered my help and services for many years and, after making sure my family and loved ones will be provided for, I have also made the decision to leave a legacy of love in my Will to The Leprosy Mission.

"It is a unique gift offering transformed futures to others once we have lived our own lives. There are charities that stick in our minds that we are keen to support - in my mind it is The Leprosy Mission so that its wonderful work can continue for generations to come. The Leprosy Mission does not just care for leprosy-affected people while they have the disease but give them a future as well.

"By leaving a legacy of love to The Leprosy Mission, my unique gift may transform the future of others – a healthier, brighter, happier future."

With every blessing,

Wendy Craig

Around a quarter of our work is funded by legacy gifts

The thoughtful gifts of legacies left by many of our faithful supporters see the lives of people affected by leprosy transformed long after their own lives. We are very grateful for the kindness shown by these supporters. It would be a wonderful blessing if you could remember The Leprosy Mission with a gift in your Will, once you have provided for your family and dependents. 

If you are planning to leave, or have already left, a legacy gift, we thank you and suggest considering informing both your loved ones and The Leprosy Mission of your decision to make a charitable provision in your Will. We also highly recommend consulting a lawyer or financial advisor to ensure that all of your goals are considered. For more information on including us in your legacy, please contact Marina Swift, Legacy Officer, on 01733 404878 or by emailing marinas@tlmew.org.uk.
