Leaving a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is one of the greatest differences you can make to help local people live as fully as they can in the time they have left.

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 local people in need of specialist hospice care and support. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come.

A gift in any size makes a major difference

“What does Katharine House mean to me? It’s changed my life, that’s what its done.”
– Alison Buckley, patient.

One in four of our patients like Alison 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.
