Leaving a gift to us in your Will

Your gift will make a difference to our patients for years to come

If you have considered leaving us a gift in your Will, you will be making a decision that impacts the lives of so many patients. It will make a real difference to those we care for, helping to ensure that our vital care will be available to everyone in our community, now and long into the future.

Your gift, no matter how large or small, will help us be there for all the people who need our services at the most challenging time of their lives. Your legacy will be the kindness you leave behind.

What your legacy means to our patients

Whether you’re updating an existing will or writing a new one, it is always best to use a solicitor to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled. Your solicitor can guide you through each step and help you to decide how to allocate your gift – whether it is a percentage of your estate, a fixed sum or items like a house or jewellery. We have a full set of leaflets that you are welcome to download below. If you still have any questions, please fill in the form below, email legacies@willen-hospice.org.uk or call us on 01908 663636.

When you place your trust in us, we’ll ensure your legacy is a lasting one.
