Everyone is remembered. 

Nobody dies alone.

A gift in your Will brings the love and care of your local hospice to all in our neighbourhood who need it.

You can give local families the precious gifts of calm and pain-free time. Time to talk and laugh about the good times. Time to say their goodbyes. Time to be together quietly until the very end.


No one ever forgets the death of the loved one and so the gift in your Will to Saint Francis Hospice will be remembered forever because it goes towards giving every patient and every family skilled, compassionate and dedicated end of life care.


The aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic means the demand for hospice care will rise as patient diagnoses and treatments are delayed. It is also very clear that the care of those left behind will be needed more than ever. Both of these challenges will last a long time into the future.


Leaving Saint Francis Hospice a gift in your will couldn’t be easier to arrange. A visit to your solicitor or even a free, on-line will-writing service with our partners Bequeathed, will allow you to put in writing your commitment to those in the neighbourhood needing end-of-life care.


You will help care for patients like Kelvin who has lived with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for eight years.


Let him tell you all about it.


kelvin“When my GP first suggested Saint Francis Hospice, it scared the life out of me. I thought I was going to the Hospice to die.


“I was expecting a grim place with people sitting in silence, so I couldn’t believe Pemberton Place. My assumptions could not have been further from the truth. People talk about all sorts of things, not just their illnesses, yet there are brilliant medical professionals on hand if you need them. I discovered a whole new world of socialising. I have physio, mindfulness classes and reiki - a Japanese technique that relieves stress and improves relaxation.


“I have found new friends, optimism, calmness and care. It’s not just tea and sympathy. In a world that can sometimes be cold and lonely, Saint Francis Hospice is a warm and friendly face.


“When the coronavirus reached the UK, I was among the first to self-isolate. But Saint Francis Hospice supported me through the pandemic with weekly calls from the medical experts. I very nearly turned down my GP’s referral. But now I’m so glad I didn’t.
