Leaving a gift in your will

In recent years gifts in Wills have become increasingly important to Cynthia Spencer Hospice, and on average they provide us with almost 20% of our charitable income.

Without these wonderful gifts we would simply not be able to offer our full range of services to the people of Northamptonshire. It's the gifts left in Wills by people like you that keep the hospice running.

I was scared to come into the hospice, once here, all staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. All staff are willing to help with any situation.

Around 35% of people say that they would leave money to a charity, but only around 7% do - most people just don't 'get around to it'.

Also every penny counts - every donation mounts up and helps us to continue to provide our care, free of charge. Don't ever think 'my gift won't make a difference' - it all makes a difference.

Making a Will is not the most cheerful of subjects, but it is one of the most selfless acts you can make. It is also the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after you die.

I think Jim would be really proud that he’s done something that we can all look back on and that other people will be able to use to share their special memories

Naturally, your first consideration in making a Will is to take care of your family and friends. Once you have provided for them, you might like to consider honouring us with the inclusion of a Legacy to the Hospice. Not only can a Legacy reduce or eliminate the liability to Inheritance Tax, it is a good opportunity to help others. Gifts in Wills already help us fund occupational therapists, in-patient and Hospice at Home nurses and incredibly important equipment to improve the quality of life for each patient. A gift in your Will costs nothing now, but could be the most important gift you ever make.

Please consider helping us this way if the time is ever right for you do to so. A gift in your Will is so easy to do, just call us on 01604 973342 for further details, or use the wording below:

Pecuniary gift

I give a gift of £ ...... to Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity [1002926] to be used for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.

We couldn't do it without you
