Leave a gift in your Will

Leave a gift in your Will and help secure the future of St Joseph's Hospice

Any gift - no matter how big or small - really will make a huge difference to our work here at St Joseph's Hospice, and will help us support more people in your community with life limiting illness.

How your gift could help:

  • Improving the services offered to our patients
  • Upgrading our hospice buildings to offer more facilities 
  • Funding new equipment 

Your gift will always be used where there is the greatest need at the time.


Why is it important to have a Will?

By having a valid and up to date Will in place, you can ensure that your loved ones are provided for, as well as helping charitable causes close to your heart. 

Who should write my Will?

You should use a solicitor or professional will writing service. This helps to ensure your Will is legally correct and that your wishes are carried out.

What if I already have a will?

No problem, your solicitor can easily update your wishes by adding a codicil to your Will.

Who can leave a gift in their Will?

Anyone! It’s a myth that you must be wealthy to leave a gift to a charity in your Will – nothing could be further from the truth! Even leaving 1% of your estate to St Joseph's Hospice can make a huge impact.

If I have left you a gift, should I tell you?

We encourage people to let us know if they have left us a gift in their Will. Such information is in no way legally binding, and we do not expect you to disclose any financial information. However, knowing about your gift does help us plan for the long-term future of St Joseph's Hospice as well as enabling us to thank you properly and keep you updated with the work of the hospice.

Your solicitor or Will writer will need the following information:

Registered Name: St Joseph's Hospice
