Why Leave A Gift In My Will To CHSS?
Leaving a gift in your Will to Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland, once you've looked after those closest to you, is a wonderful way to help ensure we are still there in the future for everyone who needs us:
- Over the next 20 years, chronic chest illness in Scotland is expected to rise steeply.
- While death rates from heart disease have almost halved, many more people are living with heart failure each year.
- Around a half of all stroke survivors will be disabled 6 months after their stroke.
From helping rebuild confidence in our local community groups to providing a lifeline through our befriending services; from financial help through personal support grants to expert guidance and care from nurses on our FREE Advice Line (0808 801 0899). Our aim is to make sure no one faces chest, heart or stroke illness alone.
A gift in your Will shows you believe in the future of Scotland's health - make the end a new beginning. Tel: 0131 225 4800 or visit www.chss.org.uk for more information.
How can ordinary people like Mairi make such a huge difference?
Mairi knows the fight against Scotland's biggest killers won't be easy. Her recovery from a stroke was an upward struggle. But with determination and effort, things can change. And the more people who decide to join together in this battle, the sooner we can turn the corner.One incredibly effective way to help is by leaving a gift in your Will. This helps us feel secure in the knowledge there will be funds to continue our vital work. Mairi knows first-hand how important our services can be. She knows she doesn't have to cope alone when she attends her local CHSS Stroke Group. Here she finds friendship, positivity and experiences to share. She's also found the confidence to join in our Voices Scotland programme, encouraging everyone affected by chest , heart or stroke illness to speak out and influence their local NHS services and to campaign on crucial issues that affect them. A gift in your Will means long term funding for these essential services. Making or amending your Will doesn't take much time or effort. Even the smallest gift can make a difference. You may choose to leave a share of your estate (a residuary bequest) or a fixed sum of money (a pecuniary bequest).

Meet Connor. At the age of 10 he became the man of the house.
Connor lost his dad at age 42. A picture of health, a stroke was the last thing anyone expected. Family life was shattered.
Tragically, Connor won't be the only child to lose a loved one this year to chest, heart or stroke illness. That's why we're developing unique materials designed and written especially for children and teenagers to help them understand and cope with the effects of losing or living with a parent suffering from these devastating conditions. Our groundbreaking research continues into the prevention of these deaths. We fund essential project teams in Scotland's University Medical Schools and hospitals, as well as backing innovative clinical trials. A gift in your Will can help us ensure a happier and healthier future for every child in Scotland.

DID YOU KNOW... that 40% of our income comes from gifts left in individual Wills?
Without these vital funds, 2 out of every 5 people we are supporting right now with a chest, heart or stroke condition would be left coping on their own. A gift in your Will today (of any size) ensures we're here for everyone in Scotland who needs us tomorrow. Make the end a new beginning.
