A present being passed from an old to a young pair of hands

Would you like to help others with high blood pressure and leave a personal legacy for future generations? By remembering Blood Pressure UK in your Will you will be helping to remove the burden of unwanted strokes and heart attacks for future generations.


We are committed to saving lives by helping people to understand and control their blood pressure. But the future of our work depends on your support. We need you to remember us in your Will to ensure that the work goes on. A gift in your Will is a gift for the future – hundreds of thousands of people will be thankful for your generosity.

By making a Will, you will ensure that your wishes will be followed after your death. This includes taking care of your loved ones and making sure that you are remembered in the way you would like by helping others through a gift to charity.


How do I make a Will?

Using a solicitor is easiest and most sure to make a Will. Before you go to see your solicitor you will need to think about:

  • what you own
  • the debts you have
  • the kinds of gifts you would like to leave
  • who would like to leave your gifts to
  • who you would like to carry out your wishes (known as your executors).

For more information, please download our factsheet making or changing your Will. If you have any questions, you can reach us on 020 7882 6255 or info@bloodpressureuk.org 


How do I remember Blood Pressure UK in my Will?

Leaving a gift in your Will to Blood Pressure UK is easy and you will not pay any tax on it. Whatever you choose to leave, the charity will get the full amount.

There are different kinds of gifts that you can leave, for example you may chose to give a set amount of money, a percentage of your estate (what you own) or give a particular gift. The different kinds of gift are explained in our factsheet Making or changing your Will.


I already have a Will, how easy is it to add a gift to Blood Pressure UK?

You can include a gift to Blood Pressure UK to your current Will by adding a Codicil. This is usually easy to do and inexpensive. If you already have a number of Codicils attached to your Will, it may be advisable to have a new Will drawn up to ensure that your wishes are set out clearly.
