A Gift In Your Will

Why should I make a Will?

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.

For further information please look at our Will Guide below, contact our Head of Fundraising whose contact details are below, and/or click on the link at the bottom of the page.


Why leave a gift to Rossendale Hospice in your Will?

A gift in your Will (legacy) enables us to continue our valuable and much needed work within the community and helps us to plan for the future. No matter how small or large we are most grateful.
