We are working towards a world where everyone affected by major trauma can access the emotional and practical support they need to make the best possible recovery.
You, your friend or a family member may have experienced major trauma and the profound effect it can have on you and your loved ones’. Perhaps you can only imagine the devastation.
When you have taken care of the people that matter most to you, a gift in your Will could help us to support more people affected by major trauma.
A gift in your Will can help us to ensure that in future, every patient and their loved ones has the opportunity to get practical and emotional support from their first day on the Ward for as long as they need it, and access to remote peer support, wherever they are.
Talk to us
We will always recommend using a solicitor or legal professional. But we can answer your questions that are about leaving a gift in your Will to Day One, or if you are an Executor.
Amongst other things, we can arrange for you to see our work in action and discuss how you'd like your gift to be spent.
Leaving a gift in your Will to create a better world for major trauma patients is easier than you might think. There are two types of gift that you can consider: a share of your estate (residuary gift) or a set sum (pecuniary gift).
Below we have provided some suggested wording to include in your Will, depending on which type of gift you choose. We recommend that you take this with you when you meet with your solicitor or legal professional.
Residuary gift (share of your estate):
"I leave.........per cent of the residue of my real and personal estate to Day One Trauma Support, Day One Office, Room LGI/12/OB/017, Brotherton Wing, B Floor, Leeds General Infirmary, Great George Street, Leeds LS1 3EX, registered charity number: 1194227."
Pecuniary gift (set sum):
"I leave the sum of ...........(in words) pounds £....... (in figures) to Day One Trauma Support, Day One Office, Room LGI/12/OB/017, Brotherton Wing, B Floor, Leeds General Infirmary, Great George Street, Leeds LS1 3EX, registered charity number: 1194227."
