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.
During 2015/16 financial year the Hospice has received over £65,000 from the legacies and we are very grateful for this much-needed source of income.
Clarke & Clarke donated £1000 from their annual staff auction.
Home furnishings distributor, Clarke & Clarke has raised £1,000 for the Hospice with their annual staff auction.
The auction, which took place in December, sold pieces of furniture which had been used at trade shows throughout the year. The Haslingden based company, which has over 80 employees, decided to donate the money raised to a local charity and Rossendale Hospice was their charity of choice.
We are very grateful to the staff at Clarke & Clarke for choosing to support the Hospice.
The Friends group are a group of volunteers who support the Hospice by organising events to fundraise for the Hospice. Please support them by attending the Fashion Show which is being held at St Mary's Chambers on the 19th of November. All welcome.
