In your Will, you may wish to leave a gift to causes you care about.  We understand that your family and loved ones must always come first. But after you have provided for them, by remembering Rays of Sunshine, you will be leaving an invaluable legacy of making wishes come true for brave and deserving children with a serious or life-limiting illness.

How it works

Types of gift you can leave in your Will include:

  • A share of your estate – known as a ‘residuary legacy’. The value of this gift won’t be affected by inflation, so it will save you having to update your Will in the future
  • A specific sum of money – known as a ‘pecuniary legacy’. Due to inflation, the real value of pecuniary gifts may change, so you may need to update your Will over time
  • An item of value, such as jewellery or property – known as a ‘specific legacy’

We recommend that you should talk to a solicitor when you make a Will, to make sure your wishes are carried out exactly as you’d like. They will be able to give you more information about the different types of gift and advise on what is best for your particular circumstances.

What to do next

Updating or creating your Will to leave any kind of gift to Rays of Sunshine, big or small, will give children the chance to put their illness on hold and experience a magical moment of joy and happy memories for the whole family.
