Leaving a gift in your will
to Rotherham Hospice
HELP THE HOSPICE to keep caring
Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your will, or legacy to Rotherham Hospice.
A gift of any size, large or small, makes a real difference to the lives of people who need Hospice care in our region.
Once those you care about have been provided for, by leaving a gift in your will to Rotherham Hospice, you will be ensuring our local community get the vital end-of-life care they deserve for years to come.
Your gift could fund:
- home visits to people experiencing an end-of-life illness
- specialist care in our inpatient unit
- bereavement support for adults, teens & children
Make a Will Month - October 2023
Thank you to our participating businesses who are supporting Rotherham Hospice this October during Make a Will Month.
MAKE A WILL ONLINE
We work with Make a Will Online who make it simple, safe and secure for our supporters to make a will and leave a gift in their will. You can go to www.makeawillonline.co.uk/rotherhamhospice and get a solicitor checked will. You will also benefit from free access to Capacity Vault – the best way to protect the wishes in your will online. When you make a will we are told that a gift has been pledged. This helps us enormously in our future planning.
* We have a limited number of free will services available each month via our partner Make A Will Online.
When you make a will online using the link above we are provided with information that is useful for our campaign – such as, the date your will was made, the existence of any gifts. You can also choose to share your name and contact details with us. If you want to keep all of this information confidential you can use this link to make a will online. Whichever way you choose to leave a gift in your will – we are incredibly grateful!
If you would rather speak to a solicitor or will writer face to face then you should do this. You should also do this if you have a high value estate (details here), or if you have other complexities in your estate. You can use the Solicitors Regulation Authority website to find a solicitor.
Make sure your solicitors use our full name: The Rotherham Hospice, our charity number: 700356, and our registered address: The Rotherham Hospice, Broom Road, Rotherham S60 2SW.
Our promises about gifts in legacies and wills
Why your support matters
Rotherham Hospice cares for families experiencing an end-of-life illness, both physically and emotionally. As a charity, Rotherham Hospice needs to raise £3 million each year to fund vital end-of-life services and we can only do it thanks to our amazing supporters like you.
With this generous support we are able to meet the demand of our services, and so encourage you to consider leaving a gift, however large or small, in your will once those you care about have been provided for. Just a small percentage could make a big difference to us and the people of Rotherham.
It’s also worth remembering that all bequests to charities are exempt from inheritance and capital gains tax – something to consider if tax planning is important for you.
