Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy

5-11 November is Will to Give week.
It's a time when many organisations around Northern Ireland share with their supporters the importance of leaving a Will and how legacies can transform the lives of disadvantaged people around the world. Read on to find out how your gifts can make a difference to people affected by leprosy. 

If you would like more information about leaving a gift in your Will to The Leprosy Mission please contact Joanne at the office on 028 9262 9500 or You can visit the Will to Give website for further information and to help find a local solicitor to advise you.  

Leaving a gift in your Will gives you the chance to continue to change the lives of people affected by leprosy for generations to come. The gifts of those long since passed are what is curing, healing and restoring people with leprosy today.

To find out the difference a legacy could make, watch this short film about TLM supporter Ian Jepps and his wife Pauline visiting India and why they have decided to leave a legacy to The Leprosy Mission in their Wills.  You can also read more about Shudeepta, whose story is featured in the video, here

We feel incredibly honoured when people choose to leave TLM NI a legacy gift - these gifts ensure that we can continue to provide life-changing programmes that transform the lives of so many people affected by leprosy. We are so grateful to these supporters and their families for their commitment to and passion for The Leprosy Mission.

Over 30% of TLM NI's total income is from legacies. 

But did you know that over 50% of people in the UK do not have a Will? And only 3% of people in Northern Ireland leave a gift to charity in their Will - that's quite surprising considering the generosity of people in Northern Ireland in making regular charitable donations. 

A gift in your Will is a gift of hope

Leaving a gift in your Will brings hope to people who have been thrown out of their homes, rejected by their family or refused employment - all because of leprosy. 

If you would like to receive more information about leaving a gift in your Will to The Leprosy Mission, please get in touch with Joanne Briggs at the office on 028 9262 9500 or email Please also read our Guidance for Executors which we hope will help.
