Legacy Gifts

The delight on a child's face the first time they play in the sensory room.

The day out where mum and dad feel like mum and dad again.

The relief when the nurse arrives at the front door, ready to help.

Legacy Gifts

It's these moments that legacy gifts help to make happen.

Gifts in wills help families to celebrate the lives of their children while they're together. And, no matter how short this time is, we're committed to making sure it is filled with joy.

Legacy gifts mean so much to us.

They pay for the care that we give to one in every four children. That's a staggering amount. Quite simply, we couldn't do what we do without these gifts.

We understand that writing a will is a very personal statement of your wishes for the future. Once you have provided for your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to CHAS. By making a gift in your Will to CHAS you can help keep the joy alive for families in Scotland facing the unimaginable reality their child will die young.

Why I'm Leaving a Gift to CHAS in my Will

undefined

In Catherine McGrath's 14 years with CHAS, she has tirelessly worked and raised funds for the charity, giving motivational talks, coordinating cans and helping out at bucket shakes. As a long-term volunteer, she has seen first-hand how important the service is to families as they go through some the toughest of times, caring for children with life-limiting conditions.

For the last two years, Catherine has also supported a family in Rutherglen through our home support service, offering practical, sibling and emotional support to mum, dad and three girls. Catherine has a particularly strong bond with the two younger siblings in the family. She will take and pick them up from nursery, read them stories and make their lunch.

Catherine also assists mum to take her child who uses CHAS services to a physiotherapy trampoline session once a week. Without Catherine's help, mum says this would not be possible. A valued member of the team, Catherine is always on hand to come along to volunteer training and speak to new home support volunteers about her role and answer any questions they may have. She is an inspiration to us all.

Such is Catherine's passion for CHAS, she has now made arrangements for the charity to receive a legacy in her Will. She says: "CHAS is such a worthwhile organisation. I know first-hand how important CHAS is to families. From respite in hospices, home care, support in hospitals and now volunteer home support what they offer to families is just incredible. Families are often struggling so it's a privilege to know I'm helping now through volunteering and in the future through my Will.

"I will be looking after my loved ones and five charities I support and I want everyone to benefit equally. It was such an easy process to write my Will and it's reassuring to have my wishes captured. It was done lovingly, and everyone knows my decision so it won't come as a surprise. I just love CHAS and though I don't what will be left after I'm gone I'm so glad to know they'll get a share of what is."
