Leave a gift in your Will

 
 
When it comes to writing your Will, your family and loved ones will be your priority, but many people also wish to leave a legacy to a cause they are close to. Leaving a gift to the Theodora Children's Charity, however large or small, will help us continue to visit sick and disabled children, making sure the joy and magic of Giggle Doctor moments last for years to come. 
 
How your legacy could help:
 
Every year the Theodora Children’s Charity visits over 33,000 children, improving their healthcare experience in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres. Every £10 provides a poorly child with a magical Giggle Doctor moment and your legacy will be directly helping children and their families at a time when they need it most. Read Jack’s story to find out how your support could help. 
 
You can find out how your Will can help children like Jack by downloading our Legacy Pack.
 
If you have left a gift to us:
 
If you have already left a gift to us in your Will, it would be really helpful to get in touch and let us know. It would also give us the opportunity to thank you for your very special gift. We would really appreciate it if you could complete this contact form. You can email it to: Jessica.mann@theodora.org or post it to 40 Pentonville Road, London, N1 9HF. We promise that all information will be treated with discretion and confidentiality.
 
Further information:
 
If you would like to find out further information about leaving a gift in your Will, why not download our Legacy Pack. It has useful information about legacy giving, as well as highlights on how your gift will help sick and disabled children across the country. 
 
 
Amending an Existing Will:
 
If you already have a Will but would like to amend it to include a gift to the Theodora Children’s Charity, you may need to complete a Codicil form. This can sometimes be easier to do, rather than having a brand new Will created. However, it is important to speak to your Solicitor first to ensure any amendments are valid.
 
Download our Codicil Form Information Document for more information. 
 
Give in Memory
 
Saying goodbye to a loved one is always difficult.  People often take this time to remember the special moments they shared together, whilst hoping to commemorate their life in a way which truly reflects their character.
 
By making a donation in memory, you can help us to bring joy to children in hospital whilst celebrating the life of a loved one; the fun times and the laughter.   A donation to the Theodora Children's Charity in memory of a loved one is special because it helps the laughter live on.
 
You can set up your own fundraising page in just a few moments by clicking here.
 
If you do choose to remember a charity at this difficult time, you may wish to ask people to donate rather than send flowers.

Our Giggle Doctor made a lovely connection with one of our children, to see her interacting in the session was amazing to watch.

The Giggle Doctors are amazing...

The Giggle Doctors are amazing. I whole heartedly support them and have the honour of being their Patron. Over the two years I spent with the Giggle Doctors, I was blown away by their skills, sensitivity and professionalism. The children are always at the core of what they do.
