Gifts in Wills

Gifts in Wills, whatever the size, make a big difference. A gift in your Will enables NRAS to continue to develop and deliver vital services to those living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), now and in the future.

Your gift will mean that people living with RA or JIA, will have access to high-quality information about their condition. They will have the opportunity to speak to a trained volunteer or helpline professional who can listen to them when they may feel confused and alone. 

Your gift will enable NRAS to support those with RA and JIA at every stage, with a referral programme that connects those newly diagnosed with our services.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a very important decision and personal to you, we are here to help.  

If you have any questions, our Supporter Relationship Manager, Emma Spicer would be more than happy to talk to you. Please email espicer@nras.org.uk or call on 01628 501 548.   

Why make a Will? 

If you have not made a Will, your surviving family and friends may experience complications with your estate being divided according to law, not your wishes. If you have no surviving family, your entire estate will go to the state.  

Leaving a Will lets you take care of your assets, your loved ones and the causes you care about after you are gone. 

A gift of as little as  1%  of your estate can help us continue to do amazing things! 

Our founder

Ailsa founded NRAS in 2001 to address the severe lack of information and support for over 400,000 people in the UK living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). 

“When my husband and I made our Wills, one of my key intentions was to leave a legacy to NRAS. After providing for family, I wanted to ensure NRAS received a gift. This organisation is an important part of my life, and I know it delivers valuable services for the hundreds of thousands of people living with both RA and JIA across the UK. Our gift will help NRAS to continue providing essential support and services for all those, like me, affected by RA and JIA.” – Ailsa Bosworth MBE.
