Guidance to help you manage a gift to The Christie from a Will

Executor

An executor is the person or organisation appointed to carry out the wishes of the person who has made the Will.

Beneficiary

A beneficiary is a person or organisation who receives a gift from a Will.

Thank you

Being the executor of a Will can seem overwhelming, so we have put together some information about The Christie to help you.

Thank you for everything you are doing as guardian of such a wonderful gift!

Get in touch

If you are the executor of a Will and it includes a gift to The Christie, please get in touch with Jackie and Hannah at The Christie.

Legacy Administrator, Jackie Batstone, 0161 918 2041 Jackie.Batstone@christie.nhs.uk

Legacy Officer, Hannah Taylor, 0161 446 3979 Hannah.Taylor@christie.nhs.uk

What we’ll ask from you

We want to help in any way we can as there are legal steps to follow and important information required by beneficiaries:

  • The name and address of the person that has given us a gift in their Will
  • A copy of the Will (or the relevant sections), where it shows the executors’ authority to act and any special wishes relating to the gift
  • The amount that has been given (or the percentage)
  • By law, executors must provide all beneficiaries with estate accounts if the gift is residuary (a percentage or portion of an estate)

Send the gift to The Christie

When the time comes, please make cheques payable to: The Christie Charitable Fund

Please post cheques to:

Legacy Administrator
The Christie Charitable Fund
Wilmslow Road
Manchester
M20 4BX

When we receive the cheque, we will send you a receipt.

Remember, you can also seek legal and other professional advice to help you with your role as an executor, as well as getting basic advice from the beneficiary/Charity.

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust is the trustee of The Christie charity. If the Will names the Trust rather than The Christie charity, the money will still go to the same place.

Some Wills may also name The Christie Hospital & Holt Radium Institute. This is a historical name for The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.
