Legacy Meadow

Welcome to the beautiful Cynthia Spencer Hospice Legacy Meadow

Map without grid

Our new Legacy Meadow will be nestled in the hospice woodland. Every legacy gift or pledge we have received to date, will receive a forget me not in the woodland. Each flower will include a personally engraved leaf with a loved one’s name, or your name if you are making the legacy pledge, and a short message if desired. You or the family members can pick a special spot from the woodland map and will be invited to come along and plant the forget me not personally.

So, every forget me not  in our woodland will represent a gift of care, love and compassion, helping us provide care now and in the future. 

Why gifts in Wills are so important to the hospice

At Cynthia Spencer Hospice donations left in Wills are vital to ensuring we can continue to care for those affected with life-limiting illnesses. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to people who have remembered the Hospice in their Will. Currently the care of one in five of our patients is funded by gifts in Wills.

All our Hospice services are offered free of charge, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and although part-funded by the NHS we rely on voluntary donations from our local community.

Care is at the heart of everything the hospice does. After you have taken care of your family please consider leaving a lasting gift in your Will to the Hospice. Every gift makes a difference – just 1% of your estate would have a significant impact on the care of future patients, so please consider supporting us in this way. When our Charity is fortunate enough to receive a legacy gift, our Trustees make sure it is used to help make a real difference to the care the Hospice provides. Our Charity uses legacy gifts to fund improvements to our service that would not normally be possible without such wonderful gifts.

By leaving a gift to Cynthia Spencer Hospice in your Will, you will help us to carry on our vital work for years to come. Since our humble beginnings in 1976 the number of people we have cared for has increased significantly and that figure is going to continue to grow, particularly in the community.  Your gift will help to support the future of hospice care in your local community and help to provide a vital source of income that will make a real difference to the lives of our patients.
