Remembering Friends of PICU in your will. A legacy gift to Friends of PICU is exempt from Inheritance tax and it could bring the total estate below the the threshold for Inheritance tax, as gifts to charities are deducted first and the remainder is liable to tax. Please think about this option as you may prefer to give it to Friends of PICU rather than the Government!
Thank You for your fantastic support, we are continually grateful to those who donate to the charity, who attend our events, who fundraise on behalf of the charity and who spread the awareness and generate the continued goodwill.
