Leave a gift in your Will

Leave a gift in your Will

Will you fund the next generation of hospice care?

Eileen's story

How will my gift help?

When preparing your Will, we know that your first priority will be to take care of your loved ones, but many people find that even after they’ve done this they can leave something to a charity or cause special to them.

Leaving a gift in your Will to St Peter & St James Hospice will help the local families who may need our care in future. Thanks to you, we’ll be able to provide expert and compassionate care on our inpatient ward, through our wellbeing services and in patients’ own homes, helping people to achieve their best possible quality of life and making a difficult time that little bit easier.

How do I leave a gift in my Will to St Peter & St James Hospice?

Gifts in Wills come in all shapes and sizes, with gifts ranging from £300 to £300,000, 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.

To leave a gift to St Peter & St James Hospice in your Will, you’ll need to decide how much you would like to leave as well as the type of gift we will receive from you. If you’d like any information on how your personal gift could help us or any advice about the Will-writing process, you’re welcome to ring us on 01444 471598. You can also find full guidance on writing your Will and making it legally binding here.

Once you have finished the process of writing your Will you should tell your executor (the person you’ve chosen to carry out your Will), close friend or relative where your Will is.

Make a Will Month

Every year, in April, we team up with local solicitors you can trust for our Make a Will month. Make a Will month allows you to create or update your Will at a discounted rate. Instead of paying the solicitor for their professional advice, we ask that you donate to St Peter & St James Hospice.
