Leave a gift in your will

Leave a gift in your Will to create a future free from the limitations of muscular dystrophy.

Watch Michael Attenborough tell us about taking on his father Richard’s legacy and how you can help the next generation of scientists finish what we’ve started 

Lets finish what we started

Very little was known about muscular dystrophy when Muscular Dystrophy UK was founded over 60 years ago. From early funded research to the first-ever clinical trial into long-term treatments using exon-skipping technology, your support has helped improve the lives of people with muscle wasting and weakening conditions.  

Today, we are still funding groundbreaking research to advance treatments. One quarter of our work would not be possible without funds raised from gifts in Wills.  

Gifts in Wills help us fund the next generation of scientists, so they can finish what we’ve started. Together we can create a future free from the limitations of muscular dystrophy. 

Thank you. 

Free Will service

We partner with the National Free Wills Network, which enables you to make or amend a simple Will for free. 

Writing your Will

Having an up-to-date Will ensures that everyone close to you knows your wishes. Once loved ones have been provided for, many people choose to donate a share or all of what is left to a charity they care about. 

For executors

If you are an executor to a Will that includes a gift to Muscular Dystrophy UK, please our Legacy team are here to help.

Why I used the free will writing service

“My first child was born recently and it made me think more seriously about getting a Will in place, something I’ve put off for many years. I had heard about MDUK’s Free Will service, so I completed the online form on the MDUK website to kick off the process.

Within a few days I was contacted by the National Free Wills Network with a list of local solicitors I could choose from to write my Will. The nearest was just five minutes from my house, and we arranged a visit to draw up a mirror Will for my wife and me.

The process was so simple and didn’t cost us anything. We also chose to include a gift to MDUK in our Will – it felt great to know we could support the charity’s work in this way while in return having peace of mind that we now have a Will in place.”  – Krishan
