Leaving a gift in your will

We know that your first priority when making a will is to provide for your family and  loved ones, but many people find that even after they’ve done this they can leave something to a cause they hold dear.

Leaving Katharine House Hospice a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us.  It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come.

1 in 10 of our patients is funded by a gift left to us in a will.  These come in all shapes and sizes, big and small - with gifts ranging from £200 to £20,000, from 1% of an estate to 100% or anything left over after other gifts have been made.

Where does your money go?

Our FREE care has developed significantly over the years – from our early days providing a sitting service, to opening Day Therapies, then building an In-Patient Unit and most recently offering an At Home Service. We have gone from strength to strength and this is thanks to the kindness and generosity of local people. With 85p in every £1 donated being spent on supporting patients and their families, we ensure that funds left to us are spent carefully and responsibly.
