Gift in Your Will

Making a legally valid Will ensures that your loved ones are provided for and you know that your wishes will be carried out.

Properly drawn up Wills can reduce Inheritance Tax and leaving a gift to a charity such as Wirral Hospice St John’s can lower the Inheritance Tax payable on your Estate. It also enables you to make important decisions that affect your family and friends after your death.

There are different ways of leaving a gift in your Will:

  1. Residual legacy: A gift of the remainder (or share of) your Estate, after all other gifts are made and debts cleared.
  2. Pecuniary legacy: A gift of a taxed sum of money
  3. Specific legacy: A gift of a particular named item, i.e. jewellery, painting, etc.

Legacies are an important part of our fundraising and have enabled us to improve and extend our services. After you have provided for family and loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to Wirral Hospice St John’s. All gifts, no matter how small you might think it is, can help us to make a big difference to our charity’s essential care.

April is our Make A Will Month

It is an excellent opportunity for you to make or update your Will following any major changes in your life.

Our Fundraising Manager, Julia Evans, explains why having an up to date Will is so important for ensuring that your loved ones are looked after when you are no longer around to do so.
