Six reasons to include a gift in your will to Arthritis Research UK

Your gift could affect millions of lives

As many as 10 million people in the UK suffer from arthritis and related conditions. That means they live with daily, sometimes even constant, pain.

Advances in research could help us provide the answers they need – and offer them a range of treatments that can help – so that one day people with arthritis could live without pain. The gift you leave could help us get there.

You’ll help the UK to lead the world in arthritis research

The UK’s arthritis research community is respected worldwide. Your gift will fund research projects and invest in the careers of the very best new graduates so that we can keep the UK at the forefront of global research, and find the answers we need, faster.

You’ll push arthritis up the national agenda

It’s only thanks to your gifts that we can keep pushing the government, science and research community to prioritise research into arthritis.

You could help to achieve a major breakthrough

Research has led to every treatment we have for every condition. It’s the only hope people with arthritis have.

To date, treatments such as anti-TNF drugs have transformed hundreds of thousands of lives. Who knows what a gift in your will could achieve?

Arthritis Research UK is the only charity dedicated 100% towards research into all forms of arthritis

If you’ve lived with, or been affected by arthritis, you’ll want to help others who have the condition. Only research can offer hope of a future free from pain.

Only Arthritis Research UK is dedicated to funding and promoting that research. So if you want to make a significant difference to millions of lives, you should add Arthritis Research UK to the list of beneficiaries from your will.

You’ll help keep the country active

By helping arthritis sufferers get the answers they need, you could help millions of people in the UK stay active and healthy – able to enjoy life; work and contribute to the economy; and play an active role in the community. You could help keep the UK active.
