Getting started with writing your Will

Writing your Will for the first time may feel like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be.

We always recommend using a solicitor or legal professional if you are thinking of writing or amending your Will. Our range of Will writing offers are free. Or you can visit the Law Society to find a solicitor in your local area.

 

How to leave a gift to the Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales

Leaving a gift to the Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales is more straightforward than you might expect. If you do decide to leave a gift to help people with kidney disease in your Will, there are 2 main types of gift you might choose – a share of your estate (residuary gift) or a set sum (pecuniary gift).

We have some suggested wording to add to your Will depending on which one you choose. You can take this along to an appointment with your chosen solicitor or legal professional.

Lottery

We have launched a weekly lottery as a way of increasing fundraising for our charity – something that will be a big help during a period when we have been forced to cancel events.

We wanted to do something which would enable us to give back to the community which has supported the fund over the years, and a lottery does just that. It’s going to be a fantastic way for you to get involved with fundraising and also get the chance to win something back.

So, we’ve partnered up with the Unity Lottery in order to bring this fun and exciting fundraising experience to you. The Unity Lottery is an umbrella lottery platform which charities of all shapes and sizes can use to run their own fundraising lotteries.

The lottery draw will take place every Saturday and each ticket gives players the chance to win one of four fantastic prizes. Each entry into the lottery will cost just £1, with at least 50p of that going directly to The Paul Popham Fund.

The chance of winning a prize is 1 in 63 and every player has an equal chance of winning. The prize structure is based on a 6-digit number match in the correct sequence, as follows:

3-digit match = 5 entries into the next draw.

4-digit match = £25.

5-digit match = £1,000.

6-digit match = £25,000.
