I already have a will

An existing will cannot be altered but a gift can be added either by a codicil (a short supplementary will) or by making a new will. Suggested wording for a codicil (which must be signed and witnessed in the same way as a will): 

I (full name) of (full address) declare this to be a first codicil to my will dated and made the day of (date, month, year). I give _______ to Christian Compassion Ministries UK of 34 Woodland Rise, Welwyn Garden City AL8 7LF, Registered Charity No 1084104, for its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the Chairman of the Board or other duly authorised officer shall be full and sufficient discharge to my executors.

Please note this information is only correct for those in the UK
