One in four of the research projects we fund is made possible because someone remembered us in their Will.Posted: Wednesday 11 September 2019 at 08:58
This week is Remember a Charity Week, when people across the UK are encouraged to leave a gift in their Will to their favourite charity, after taking care of family and friends.
Our legacies manager Julie Edwards says: “It’s a great opportunity to think about passing on something wonderful to future generations – and what could be more wonderful than the gift of sight? Macular disease is the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK. More people than ever before are facing the daily challenges of life with macular disease. The number of people living with it is expected to double in the next 30 years.”
Despite exciting progress being made in research, there is still no cure for macular disease.
A gift in your Will to the Macular Society would fund world-class research to find a cure for macular disease for future generations. One in four of the research projects we fund is made possible because someone, often long ago, remembered the Society in their Will. It would also give reassurance and advice to people coming to terms with macular disease.
Leaving a gift is easier than you think. To find out more, and read about our free and discounted Will making offers, please visit our legacy page
