Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

gift


Gifts in Wills enable us to plan for the future, to ensure we’re here to care for future generations.


Why should I consider leaving a gift to The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice?

Legacies (gifts that donors leave in their will) allow The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice to ensure that people at the end of their life get the complete care they need, either here at the hospice or in their own homes. It enables us to make every moment count for people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families. Today, tomorrow and for years to come.

Legacies are incredibly important for the hospice. Over the years, the gifts that people have generously left to us have helped us recruit more nurses, equip our inpatient unit, provide beds, extend our services and train staff to offer the best possible care when people need it the most.



Did you know that over two thirds of our funding comes from voluntary donations, including gifts in Wills? Without these donations, we wouldn’t be able to provide care at home, at our in-patient unit, or our bereavement or day services

What is a gift in your Will?

A legacy (or gift in your Will) enables you to state that, after you die, a particular part of your estate be given to a person, charity or organisation. It could be a fixed sum of money, a named item such as a piece of jewellery, furniture, property or shares or it could be the remainder of your estate once you have ensured that your family and friends will be looked after.



You can make a difference and ensure your legacy of kindness and generosity lives on.



We assure you that:


  • Those closest to you come first in your Will – we fully respect that and we won’t try to change it.
  • If you feel that you don’t want to tell us that you have left us a gift in your Will – we respect your right to privacy. If you would like to tell us, that would be lovely so we are able to thank you for your kindness.
  • We will never ask you the size or type of gift if you decide to support our work by leaving us a gift in your Will
  • We fully understand that you may change your Will and decide not to leave us a gift, and that is your right to do so
  • However much you donate, you can be reassured that we’ll use your gift wisely and effectively for the benefit of those who are in our care.
