Life Changing Legacies

“I decided I wanted to give a percentage to CHSS because I see first-hand the work it does.”

Many of our supporters are choosing to support people across Scotland by leaving a gift in their Will to Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.
Theresa is leaving a life changing legacy.

“Doing this for myself gave me an opportunity to think seriously about my own legacy. I decided I wanted to give a percentage to CHSS because I see first-hand the work it does. Its values and person-centred, community-based approach match my own.”

Read Theresa’s Story

No matter how much you give, a gift in your Will means that we can continue to support survivors and their families now and in the future.
You can make a difference and ensure your legacy of kindness and generosity lives on.

We appreciate that this is an incredibly generous gesture and is one that will mean a lot to the people that we support. If you want to discuss this further – such as letting us know if there are specific areas or services you’d like your donation to go to – please get in touch. We’re happy to answer any questions that you and your loved ones may have.

You can be the difference between someone just surviving and really living.

“CHSS has been so vital to my recovery”

Every penny you raise will go towards helping someone in Scotland do more than survive when they return home from hospital with a chest, heart or stroke condition – you’ll help them really live.

You’ll be helping people like John who suffered a heart attack in April last year while on a bike ride with a friend.

Lifesaving is not a word John bandies about easily. But when he speaks of the support he received from our Advice Line after having a heart attack, it’s the one that comes readily to mind.

“What CHSS has done for me has been absolutely massive. It’s been incredible. Lifesaving is the word coming into my head, and it sounds over-dramatic, but CHSS has been so vital to my recovery.”

“When Tracey from the charity’s Advice Line first phoned me, it was perfect timing and a trigger just to open up and share my feelings. I was so desperate for support, and some of the things she gave me – coping mechanisms and therapy guides –I still use today.”

Our Trusted Partners

Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland has partnered with trusted Will writing services to enable people who support CHSS and their partners to write or update their simple Will for free, online, over the phone or face-to-face with a qualified solicitor. Services vary with location, simply choose the available service that suits you best.

If your Will is more complicated, you may be asked to pay an additional cost. This will be agreed between you and the solicitor beforehand, so you won’t suddenly face an unexpected cost.
