Supporting us... Gifts in Wills.

There is one way of supporting the Hospice that can make a difference to local people in the future but doesn’t cost anything now – remembering St Leonard’s in your Will.

Your gift will help patients to live their lives as normally as possible – perhaps visiting favourite places, seeing a grandchild born, sitting in the sunshine, enjoying being at home.

It will fund the physiotherapist who gives a patient the confidence to walk again. It will pay the nurse who brings hospice care into a patient’s own home and allows a partner to stop being a carer. It will provide bereavement support to a son, a daughter, a brother, a friend.

Any donation, however big or small, that is included in a Will today will significantly make a difference and ensure we can continue to provide the best quality of care and support to our community.

The importance of making a Will

There are three life events where you should make a will or alter an existing one:

  1. Buying your first home
  2. Tying the knot
  3. Becoming a parent

No one likes to think about making a Will, and people have all kinds of reasons for not making one. It is often thought that a Will is something that you only need to think about later in life and it is easy to keep putting it off. However, you can legally make a Will at any time after you turn 18.
