Gift in Your Will
A legacy donation to Wirral Hospice St John’s will enable us to continue to deliver the best possible care and support services for people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
Making a Will gives you the peace of mind to know how your estate will be divided and ensures that your loved ones are in your thoughts for when you are no longer around.
It’s a way to leave a gift for your family and friends and also the causes you care about.
After you have provided for your family and other loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to Wirral Hospice St John’s.
Legacies are a vital source of hospice funds and they enable us to improve and extend the services we provide for our whole Wirral community.
There are different ways of leaving a gift in your Will:
- Residual legacy: A gift of the remainder (or share of) your estate, after all other gifts are made and debts cleared
- Pecuniary legacy: A gift of a taxed sum of money
- Specific legacy: A gift of a particular named item such as jewellery, art or other valuable goods
All gifts to the hospice, no matter how large or small, can make a really positive contribution for generations to come.
Please do note that if you choose to leave something to the hospice, or any other charity, in your Will it is totally for your discretion and completely confidential between you and your solicitor, there is absolutely no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to the hospice.
April is our Make a Will Month
Make a Will Month is organised in partnership with a host of Wirral’s solicitors in April each year and provides an excellent opportunity for you to make or update your Will following any major changes in your life.
Maybe you have moved house, got married or divorced, or have more children or grandchildren?
Whatever your circumstances local solicitors will kindly give their time, waiving their normal fees, to draw up basic Wills in return for a kind and fair donation to Wirral Hospice St John’s.
Visit www.wirralhospice.org/makeawillmonth to find more details and a list of participating solicitors.
