The British Home is a charity that has cared for severely disabled residents for 150 years. We could only have continued our work for so long because of the generosity of our many donors and supporters, especially those who have remembered us with a gift in their will. Our residents have modern spacious single rooms and are cared for as unique adults, each with their individual needs.
One third of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research is funded by gifts in Wills. Our strategy is to prevent more cancers, diagnose them earlier, develop the best therapies and ensure that each patient receives the best treatment for them. We’re aiming to accelerate progress so that 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034 - and gifts in Wills are critical to that progress.
Parkinson’s is a neurological disorder affecting over 145,000 people in the UK alone. It is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, yet symptoms are still treated with the same group of drugs we have had for over 50 years. There is currently no approved treatment which can even slow down, let alone reverse or cure the condition.
Demelza Hospice Care for Children helps children who may not live a long life, to live a full life. We provide specialist care to hundreds of babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and support to their families in East Sussex, Kent and South East London. Leaving Demelza a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us.
We know that living with dementia can be a hard and lonely experience. Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service.

Dimbleby Cancer Care helps make life better for people facing cancer, providing practical and psychological support to patients, their families and carers, primarily through our support centres at Guy’s Cancer Centre and Queen Mary’s, Sidcup.

As a UK based charity operating in Greece since 1959, GAWF's purpose is the prevention and relief of cruelty and suffering amongst animals in Greece. We are proud of what we have achieved over 60 years as the longest serving animal charity operating in Greece at a national level, but there is still a long way to go in encouraging changes in attitudes at every level of Greek society.
Listening Books is a UK charity providing nearly 8,000 fantastic audiobooks on three easily accessible formats: downloads, internet streaming and MP3 CDs.
