Leaving a gift in your Will
Gifts left to us in Wills contribute almost 30% of our income
One in three patients is cared for as a direct result of gifts in Wills
Gifts in Wills means we can build and plan for the future, to ensure we’re here to help future generations
Without this income, we wouldn’t be able to provide care at home, at our in-patient unit, or our bereavement or day services
After providing for your family and friends, by leaving a gift to the Weldmar Hospicecare in your Will you could, in a very special way, help to ensure the continuation of caring work after your lifetime.
Any gift you make will be exempt from Inheritance Tax so the whole of it can be used by Weldmar.
Make a Will Month
During October, you can make a free Will thanks to Weldmar Hospicecare and a number of local solicitors.
We would always suggest that you consult your solicitor or legal adviser concerning drawing up or amending your Will.
“Weldmar looked after my darling Patrick up until his death in April 2015. He was only 64 and it was the third cancer he had faced; the first when he was just 28.
When we were finally told there were no more treatment options, we were introduced to Chris from the hospice. That was a great relief, because she had looked after Patrick’s cousin the year before and so we already knew her and trusted her completely.
Patrick wanted to stay at home and Chris made that possible. She was with us regularly, and for the whole time just a phone call away. Chris cared for Patrick but also arranged extra things like massages for Patrick (and once for me as well!). She enabled Patrick to come to the hospice for a week to try to boost his energy – and then sorted out a hospital bed at home when it became clear the end was approaching. Thanks to Chris, Patrick had his wish, and he died at home in peace and with dignity.
I support the hospice now with a small monthly gift – but I have also left provision for them in my Will. Weldmar’s ‘gold standard’ care is absolutely vital for our community – and they can only care for us and those we love if we give them our support. It’s a great comfort for me to know that my gift will pay for someone else’s hospice care in the future.”
