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:

 

"I remember when my youngest grandson was terminally ill with neuro blastoma. The Giggle Doctors visited his bed and amused him and broke the tension for us all. God Bless." 

 

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 pledge form. You can email it to: amy.calcutt@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.

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.

A Parent

Thank you so much for visiting my little girl today at the LGI. She was being fasted for surgery and was getting a little past it and irritable, thankfully you came at just the right time and put her back in fantastic spirits and definitely made her giggle. Thank you very much!

A massive thank you to Dr Hip Hap and Dr Flowerpot both who visited Byron on the verge of a melt down because he was  very scared about being in hospital again. Both Mum and Dad weren't far from tears also, knowing he would rather be doing what little boys do best. A few minutes after saying hi we were all laughing and having a wonderful time, and Byron now thinks hospitals are great fun.
