Frequently asked questions

What types are Wills are there?


There are a number of different types of legacies to choose from, but the two most common are known as Residuary Gifts and Pecuniary Gifts.

It’s important that you choose the type of legacy that works best for you and your circumstances, please do take advice on this if you are unsure.

  • Residuary

This is a percentage of your estate after all other gifts and expenses have been paid and you have looked after your family and loved ones. Just a small percentage of your estate can transform the future for those affected by pancreatic cancer.

  • Pecuniary

This is a gift of a set amount of money from your estate.

We recommend that you speak to a solicitor who will advise you and help with the wording of your gift.

How can I change my Will to leave a gift to Pancreatic Cancer UK?


If you have already arranged your Will and simply wish to add a gift to Pancreatic Cancer you can complete a codicil form and store it with your Will. This form will be read alongside your Will and allows you to make changes to your Will, without having to rewrite it.

When my wife Sian was ill, we talked about how we could help others and she decided that she wanted to change her Will to include a gift to Pancreatic Cancer UK, which turned out to be an incredibly simple thing to arrange. Nothing can bring Sian back, but this gift will make sure that her legacy lives on.
