Making a Will ensures that your loved ones are provided for as you wish. Unless you make a Will, you cannot guarantee that your estate will be distributed as you desired.
If you die without having made a Will (known as Intestate) the law directs how your assets are divided. Making a Will is particularly important if you have children as ‘testimony guardians’ (people chosen to care for your children should you die) can be appointed by your Will. By having a Will properly executed by a reputable solicitor you can be assured that provisions have been made for your loved ones.
Any gift in your Will made to a UK registered charity such as Rossendale Hospice will be tax free and may help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax your estate would otherwise have to pay.

In June, The Friends Group at Rossendale Hospice organised a Curry night at Anar Kali Restaurant. The evening was enjoyed by over 60 people and has raised a fantastic £621.20 for the Hospice. Thank you to the Friends and everyone who came to support the event.
As a result of the Rossendale Round Table closing, we were delighted to be invited to the last Spice Night held at Ashoka. Here, the Hospice were presented with a cheque for £1000 which we are incredibly grateful for.
Thank you for all your fundraising efforts over the years and we wish you all the very best.
