Leaving a Gift in your Will

It was once said that “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” For us, this perfectly encapsulates the spirit of giving. 

At Cynthia Spencer Hospice, we care for hundreds of people every year – each on their own unique journey, each with their own unique story. We’ve proudly served the community at our hospice in Northampton, as well as in people’s homes across Northamptonshire, since 1976.

Many people choose to leave a gift in their Will to Cynthia Spencer because it enables them to make a substantial contribution to a local charity close to their hearts, after they have taken care of their family, without having to donate a penny now. These gifts in Wills are crucial to the support we provide to local people – in fact, these thoughtful gifts pay for the care of one out of every five patients we look after. Our services simply wouldn’t exist without the generosity of local people remembering our hospice in their Wills.

We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will

We’ve compiled some information and guidance here to help you make the best decision for you and your loved ones. If you make the wonderful choice to leave a gift in your Will to Cynthia Spencer Hospice, we’d be thrilled to talk more about this and ensure the process is as easy as possible for you. Please read on to find out more about why making the choice to leave a gift to your local hospice is so special.
