Use a trusted solicitor

Make a Will with our trusted partners, F Barnes Solicitors or Taylors Legal, in return for a donation to the Hospice.

Why is it important to make a Will?

Without a Will, there is no guarantee that your estate will be left to the people and organisations that are important to you. 

Make sure you keep your Will updated when your circumstances change, for example, when you get married or as you buy property, so you know that whatever you leave behind will benefit those important to you.

Support people like Wendy

Meet Leonore. She’s a generous supporter of your local hospice.

After her sister, Wendy, died in our care, Leonore spoke about what it meant to her and her family. Her words sum up perfectly why everyone who supports the hospice is so important. 

"We looked to the hospice to get us through the next week, the next day. They were always there. It was all about the care that Wendy needed and the care that our family needed. The hospice was the safe anchor point that kept us grounded.

"‘Now I really understand how important it is to be free."

always preferable to leave gifts unconditionally where possible, as this allows us to use your gift where it is most needed at the time we receive it.

Should I tell the Hospice I am planning to leave them a gift in my Will?

We know that many people like to keep the instructions placed in their Wills a private matter which we completely respect. If you do want to let us know that you have remembered Saint Francis Hospice in your Will, it will give us the opportunity to thank you.
