Leaving a gift in your Will

Supporting our dementia work by giving a lasting legacy

Naturally, when you start thinking about writing your Will, your loved ones will always be first on your mind. However, once you have made provision for your family and friends, you may well find that you are able to leave a gift in your Will to Daybreak Oxford.

We are at the forefront of supporting people living with dementia in Oxfordshire through our day clubs in Greater Leys, North Oxford, and Kidlington. We also provide crucial respite care for family members.

Do you share our vision of keeping families affected by dementia together, so avoiding expensive care? By leaving a gift in you Will, you will help us maintain our life-enhancing work.

Our mission is to help our club members feel less isolated, have companionship, improved communication, and a better sense of well-being. We also want our carers to have improved health, well-being and reduced feelings of isolation and loneliness. Through leaving a gift in your Will to Daybreak Oxford, you will be supporting some of these most vulnerable families.

Leaving a gift in your Will is not complicated

You may be daunted by making or changing a Will, but it is easy and quick to do. It is best to use a solicitor or professional will-writer to give you peace of mind. You do not have to make decisions all at once. For example, a simple Will could say that you would like your family to have 95% of your estate and Daybreak Oxford 5%.

It may be that you have already written a Will, but you would like to add a gift to Daybreak Oxford. If so, you can ask your solicitor to make any changes with a codicil form, which is a legal appendix to your Will.

To make it easy for you, we have a Codicil, which you can complete and send to your solicitor. There might not be a cost involved, but it will be important for your solicitor to read the codicil to check it does not conflict with your current Will.

Donating In Memory

Donating or fundraising in memory of a loved one is a very special and meaningful way to remember them – honouring their life and helping others at the same time. We are most grateful to receive these donations.

There are many different ways you can support Daybreak in memory of a loved one:

  • Make a donation in their name

  • Collect at a funeral or memorial – a good way to do this is to set up a fundraising page on Justgiving.com

  • Create a tribute fund through Muchloved.com
