leave a legacy

Be their lifeline beyond your lifetime

Leaving a legacy to Camp Simcha will help fund bespoke practical, therapeutic and emotional support to Jewish families in the UK affected by their child’s serious illness.

Why leave a gift in your will?
Our aim is to relieve some of their daily burdens and help them cope with the distress and upheaval of their child’s diagnosis. We also deliver hope, understanding and moments of joy during some of the darkest times of a family’s life. This short film below features Camp Simcha grandparents explaining the difference our support has made to their families.

We support children, from all across the UK, with over 50 different chronic, life-changing or life-threatening medical conditions, including genetic disorders, all types of cancer, muscular conditions, premature babies, gastro-intestinal conditions, serious mental health conditions, Type 1 Diabetes, serious surgery and many others. We are there for the whole family when a child is ill.

Camp Simcha receives no government funding and relies entirely on the community’s generosity.

Legacies help to ensure that we can continue to be there for every Jewish family that needs us.

Choosing to leave a gift in your Will to Camp Simcha, whatever the size, can help to ensure we can continue to be the lifeline for seriously ill children and their families in the future. It couldn’t be easier to leave a gift in your Will to Camp Simcha.

Leaving a legacy could enable us to:
– Provide practical and emotional support solutions to parents struggling to juggle their child’s medical needs with daily life
– Deliver respite opportunities to reinvigorate exhausted and overwhelmed parents
– Help children to verbalise their complex emotions
– Deliver uplifting experiences to bring joy and laughter to families’ lives
– Ensure Jewish families throughout the UK can access the support they need

A Will is a legal document that offers the best way to ensure your loved ones are provided for according to your current wishes. When creating your first Will, or updating an existing one, it is advisable to seek the help of a solicitor or legal professional.

We are proud to be a member of Jewish Legacy who have created a panel of solicitors offering preferential rates for their Will writing services.

I see what my grandson goes through and it’s very painful to watch, but Camp Simcha offers a medicine for that pain; it’s like being surrounded by a duvet of love.
