Leave a Gift in your Will

When you leave us a gift in your Will, you’ll ensure our care continues to support those in need. To help, we’ve partnered with online Wills provider Octopus Legacy (formerly Guardian Angel) so you can write a simple Will for FREE in as little as 15 minutes. 

Why leave a gift to Nottinghamshire Hospice?

Leaving a gift to charity in your Will is one of the most generous and thoughtful ways to show support for a cause close to your heart.

When your gift is left to Nottinghamshire Hospice, it will provide vital support and care to local families. Your gift will be the reason people can spend their final days at home. It’ll ensure their loved ones are supported throughout this difficult time, too.

The end-of-life care for my wife was excellent throughout. The hospice staff coming in to care for her were superb. We could not have wished for better care and support. In particular the help, kindness and support we received from Josh made a huge difference to us. He was wonderful.

The difference your gift will make

It costs £4.6m a year to provide our care, through Wellbeing, Hospice in Your Home and Bereavement Support. However much you give, every pound will have a lasting impact on your local community. Your kindness will live on long after you’re gone, ensuring nobody facing an incurable illness in Nottinghamshire is left to cope alone.

Why make a Will?

Your Will is one of the most important documents you’ll ever sign – it ensures that the things you leave behind will go to the people and causes you care about. These include your home, money, and your possessions.

A Will can also set out your wishes in relation to your funeral and who you would like to be the guardians of your children, should you die whilst they are young. Writing a Will makes sorting out your affairs much clearer and easier for your family after your death, preventing unnecessary strain and worry at a distressing time.
