Make a Gift in your Will

Many people, however much they want to, feel unable to make significant financial gifts to causes they support during their lifetime. Making a gift in your will enables you to make a real difference.

Looking after your loved ones and friends comes first, but if our work is important to you and you have the opportunity to help us to look after those with life-limiting illnesses, your gift would be received with heartfelt thanks.

“The Hospice provided such wonderful care for my wife and me, allowing us to spend precious time together in a caring and homely environment. By leaving a gift in my Will to The Countess of Brecknock Hospice, I know that other people will be able to receive the same level of care and support which makes a difficult time easier.”

None of us face death gladly and making a will is often the first step we take to admitting our own mortality. At the same time, settling your affairs brings with it peace of mind for you and your family.

The Countess of Brecknock Hospice has for thirty years been a centre of excellence, providing specialist palliative care and support for our patients and their families. This work can only continue if funds are generously donated. It costs a great deal to maintain the high standards of our Hospice, and your gift would help us to continue to improve the
quality of life of the terminally ill.

A bequest in your will, of whatever size, can make a big difference to our hospice. If you are considering leaving a gift in your will, please do let us know so that we can thank you and provide any information you may need.

I may not have the opportunity to thank you personally for your generous donation, but do so most sincerely on behalf of our patients and staff.
