Legacy of Love

At Willen Hospice, love is at the heart of everything we do

 

Our people see love on a daily basis, all year round – love between our patients and those closest to them, love from our supporters who so generously help us provide our care, love from our staff and volunteers who put their heart and souls into providing our purpose.

This February, as many people celebrate Valentines day, we’re launching our Legacy of Love campaign to highlight the importance of Legacy giving, or leaving a gift in your Will, to our future and to yours. To raise awareness, we’ll be sharing stories of local people who have experienced the transformative care that we provide.

Be Inspired

Thanks to you, we’re able to create lasting memories for local families, like Olivia’s Willen wedding day. 

 

We are grateful for every donation that is made with love, but leaving a gift in your will is one of the most heartfelt, and generous acts someone can do to support the Hospice. Making a difference beyond your own lifetime, so we can be there for local families when they need us most.

However you choose to love your local hospice, your support can leave a lasting legacy that ensures compassionate care so patients and their loved ones can spend precious time together for generations to come.
