Gift in your will

When you donate in your will you are using an extremely generous, thoughtful and caring way to donate vital funds to the Hospice. It ensures that we are able to ensure a good quality of life to all our patients long into the future.

To donate in your will is easy and it can be as little as 1% of what you leave behind.
Family always come first, so make sure they are provided for. But please think of the Hospice and help us to continue to be there for the local community for years to come.

Every year the Hospice relies on income received from legacies to provide services free of charge to people from the local community with life-limiting illnesses. Legacies also help us develop and improve the care we offer to patients for years to come.

If you have already made provision for the Hospice in your will – thank you. If you would like to let us know this, in strictest confidence, you can telephone 01977 708868.
