The impact of gifts in wills

How a gift in your will can help us save and change lives for years to come

Lung disease is the third biggest cause of death in the UK. Hospital admissions for lung conditions are rising, air pollution is causing new lung conditions and making existing conditions worse, and there is a huge gap in survival between the rich and the poor.
This must change. That's why Asthma + Lung UK needs your support.
Your legacy gift could help us raise awareness of the seriousness of lung conditions and challenging misconceptions. It will help us to drive more research into lung health, tackling the causes of lung conditions and ensuring people get the support they need. It will help us transform lung health in the UK.

 Want to restrict your gift to a specific area of work?

The best way to ensure that your gift will be of the greatest help to us is to leave a legacy or bequest for our general charitable purposes. This gives us the flexibility we need to continue our varied work and projects. However, we understand that you may want to restrict your gift to be used for a particular condition or area of our work. If so, please contact our legacies team by calling 0300 222 5800 or emailing legacies@asthmaandlung.org.uk and we’ll talk you through the options and the correct wording.

How your money is used

We drive life-changing research and innovation. We’ll ensure no stone is left unturned when it comes to finding a treatment, cure or a better way to diagnose lung disease.

We enable everyone to live well with a lung condition – by giving the best possible support and information so people can stay well and out of hospital.

We fight to make lung health a priority, to make sure everyone has access to high-quality care, and to tackle toxic air pollution.

We will make an impact on the lives of countless people affected by asthma for generations to come…

I have left a gift in my will to Asthma + Lung UK. However large or small the amount, I know it helps to fund their amazing work. I want to support research to help treat, and ultimately cure, asthma.
