I give [state proportion e.g. one third] of the residue of my estate to the Friends of the William Morris Gallery (Registered Charity No 800513) to be used for their general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.

Codicil

If you have already made a Will and now wish to add the Friends of the William Morris Gallery as a beneficiary, you can ask a solicitor to help you complete a simple Codicil form. A Codicil is a legal document that is used to make minor changes to your Will. You will need to sign the form in the presence of two independent witnesses and should keep it in a safe place along with your Will. A beneficiary of your Will or their spouse or civil partner cannot witness your Codicil.
