Eileen's story

How do I leave a gift in my Will?

If you would like to discuss leaving a gift in your Will to us, we would suggest speaking to your local solicitor for advise.

What will my solicitor need to know?
Name: St Peter & St James Hospice
Address: North Common Road, North Chailey, Lewes, East Sussex, BN8 4ED
Registered Charity Number: 1056114

If you would like us to help put you in touch with a local solicitor, or if you would like further information, please feel free to call us on 01444 471598.

We would always advise, once you have finished the process of writing or updating your Will, that you tell someone close to you where your Will is.

What gift can I leave?

There are several different ways you can leave a gift to us in your Will, and your solicitor will help you with this. Gifts in Wills come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from 1% of an estate to 100%, or anything left over once other gifts have been made. All charitable gifts you make in your Will are free from inheritance tax.

You may leave us a residuary gift, which is the amount left over after all liabilities have been paid, or you may chose to leave a set sum of money, known as a pecuniary gift. Alternatively you may choose to leave us a particular item which you specify in your Will.

What difference will my gift make?

Leaving a gift in your Will to St Peter & St James Hospice will help the local families who may need our care in future. However big or small the gift you may choose to leave us in your Will, it will help pay for 1 in 4 of the patients we care for, and will make a profound difference to your local community.

Last year we cared for 725 patients. 181 of these were cared for thanks to gifts in Wills.
