Leave a gift in your Will

Your Will can change people’s everyday lives

Leaving a gift in your Will can change the everyday lives of those with arthritis and the lives of their families too.

Arthritis affects 10 million people in the UK – it's the biggest cause of pain and it destroys people’s lives.

For Mrs Myrtle Middleton, it’s meant a lifetime of caring for her mother, who had arthritis. Then she developed the disease herself. For Pam, it’s meant six decades of fighting arthritis to live a fulfilled life.

However, research breakthroughs are transforming lives. For Lily, who’s just turned nine, it means she can walk unaided and can enjoy swimming and gymnastics. For Victor, who struggled through school on crutches, life is now pain-free and he’s thriving at university.

Mrs Middleton and Pam understand all too well the devastating impact the pain of arthritis can have on someone’s life. They also realise that every gift, big or small, really helps. That’s why they're all using their Wills to support our research. Read Mrs Middleton's and Pam's stories to find out more about why they're supporting us.

Thank you for your interest in leaving a gift in your Will. We believe leaving a gift in your Will is an important decision, but that doesn't mean it should be difficult to do. Our information should help guide you through this process.
