Essential wording for leaving a gift in your Will

Essential wording for leaving a gift in your Will

You can use this wording to include a gift to Kidney Research UK in your Will.

Wording for a residuary gift (a share of your estate gift):

I give a share of (often included as a %) of the residue of my estate to Kidney Research UK,  registered charity numbers: 252892 and SC039245, address: Nene Hall, Lynch Wood Park, Peterborough PE2 6FZ for its general charitable purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a valid and appropriate form of discharge.

Wording for a pecuniary gift (cash gift):

I give £ (amount) to Kidney Research UK, registered charity numbers: 252892 and SC039245, address: Nene Hall, Lynch Wood Park, Peterborough PE2 6FZ for its general charitable purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a valid and appropriate form of discharge.

Adding a Codicil to your existing Will:

If you already have an up to date Will and would simply like to include a gift to Kidney Research UK, then you can add a Codicil.

“I (your name) of (your address) declare this to be my first Codicil to my last Will dated (date). I give (details of your gift) to Kidney Research UK, Registered Charity Numbers: 252892 and SC039245, address:  Nene Hall, Lynch Wood Park, Peterborough PE2 6FZ for its general charitable purposes and I direct that the receipt of the treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a valid and appropriate form of discharge. In all other respects I confirm my Will.”

You will need to get your Codicil witnessed by two adults who are unrelated to you, and who are not benefitting from your Will.

Whichever option you choose, we always recommend that you ask a solicitor or other legally qualified professional to prepare your Will.
