Leaving a gift in your Will is a great way to ensure that we can continue to make a difference not only now but in the future. In fact almost 1 in 5 of our patients are cared for through the income we receive from legacies.
Farleigh Hospice relies greatly on people leaving gifts in their Wills to provide vital services to the local community.
There are three main ways to leave a gift to Farleigh Hospice:
• ‘Family and Friends First Legacy’,
• ‘Cash Legacy’
• ‘Legacy in Kind’.
Family and Friends First Legacy
At Farleigh Hospice we know that caring for your family is a priority. However, after making provision for your family and friends, you can leave whatever is left in your estate - the residue - to Farleigh Hospice alone or with other charities.
Cash donations are always very welcome. Do remember, however, that cash donations tend to decrease in value over time. To avoid this you can either index link your gift or review it periodically to retain its original value.
Legacy in Kind
Specific items such as property, shares, jewellery or furniture can be gifted. Leaving the contents of your home as a gift in your Will is welcome as our shops can maximise the value of the gift for the hospice
Please click here for our legacy brochure. If you do decide to leave a legacy to Hospice, the following specimen legacy clauses should be taken with you when you see your solicitor. Alternatively, if you wish to amend your Will with a Codicil, the attached form should be used. This information will help save you and your solicitor time and effort. However you choose to help us you can be sure you are making a vital contribution to the future of hospice care in mid Essex.
