Peter, Christie pledger and supporter
For over a decade, Peter Boulton and his family have generously supported Christie patients in memory of Peter’s partner, Margaret Hughes.
Peter and his daughter Tansy have taken on many fundraising events in memory of Margaret, including the Great North Run and London Marathon. Peter has now decided to include a gift in his Will to The Christie as a lasting legacy dedicated to his family. Every year, an incredible one in three charitable projects are funded thanks to generous people like Peter who include a gift in their Will.
"I am proud that my gift will give hope to families in the future. The Christie has been a big part of my life and including a gift in my Will just makes perfect sense to me.
"Research into breast cancer at The Christie is especially close to my heart. It gives me great comfort to know that we can save and change lives in Margaret’s name. You can include a gift in your Will after first taking care of loved ones and it just made perfect sense for me to choose The Christie.
"A percentage gift will have a huge impact for Christie patients, with little effect on what’s remaining for your loved ones. The decision therefore to leave 10% of the taxable estate over and above allowances to charity means the government is effectively funding 76% of the gift. One thing I always say is that everyone can include a gift in their Will; no matter your wealth, health or age."
