Gifts in Wills

A small mention in your Will could make a big difference to Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland. Do Something Wonderful Today, So Our Nurses Can Care Tomorrow

Hospice at Home are fortunate to receive legacy gifts from supporters from time to time. Their kind wishes create a lasting difference, which will support future local patients and their families who are in need of our Clinical Services Team when faced with difficult and devastating times.

For 1 week in May 2017 the Cumbria Hospice Alliance – five hospice care charities in Cumbria – are working together to raise awareness of the importance of legacy donations.

Hospice at Home kindly asks you, our supporters, to leave a gift to the Charity in your will. We believe that no-one should have to face a life-limiting illness on their own and by leaving a gift we can provide care, comfort, guidance and support for patients, their families and carers in our local community.

Please help us to achieve our ultimate aim of providing a peaceful and dignified death at home. Your generous gift, however big or small, will make a difference tomorrow.

Find out how you can make a difference by talking to our Legacy  Fundraiser, Julie Blundell on 01768 210719 or email julie@hospiceathome.co.uk 

Legacy Packs are also available which can be delivered, these include our Legacy Booklet and up to date information about the Charity. Julie and Fiona Stobart, CEO and Founder of the Charity would also warmly welcome you for a visit to the Clinical and Fundraising Office at Valley Court, Barras Lane, Dalston where you can learn how just how important your gift would make to the patients of tomorrow.

A valid Will is the only way that you can be sure that your wishes are carried out after your death. Making a Will is an easy, quick and generally inexpensive process. Whatever the size of your estate, a Will ensures that you can use it to maximum effect and provide for those you care for and the causes that you admire. A Will is also tax effective.

If you die without a valid Will, you die ‘intestate’ and lose control of your estate. All your assets will be divided up according to the strict rules of intestacy. As a result, some relatives may be entitled to a share whether you wanted them to or not. You may also leave your loved ones with financial difficulties and a large avoidable tax bill. Bereavement is painful enough without the avoidable distress and hardship of intestacy.

In recent years gifts from Wills have crucially helped us fund our core nursing service and have also enabled us to extend respite care, to offer complimentary therapies to our patients and their carers and to provide pre and post bereavement support.
