Gift in Your Will

Emma is more than a nurse to Marcus in his final days. She is his friend. By leaving a gift in your Will to St Peter's Hospice, you can make sure this wonderful sense of family carries on long into the future.

Why a gift in your Will means so much

Every one of us at St Peter's Hospice, from Sarah the consultant to Bill the driver, is devoted to bringing comfort and peace to patients and their loved ones. But it costs £22,000 a day to provide that extraordinary level of care and dedication.

A gift of any amount in your Will, whether it's a cash sum or a percentage of your estate, will help ensure we are here for families in the years ahead. The care of 1 in 4 of the people we support is paid for by these extra-special gifts.

You’ll be part of our family, too

If you're able to support us with a gift in your Will, you'll join Emma, Sarah and Bill as part of the St Peter's Hospice family. And that means we’ll make you some special promises:

  • Your gift will be used to provide the loving care and sense of family that loved ones deserve in their final days
  • We respect your privacy, so you won’t have to tell us your decision
  • We'll do all we can help you make or update your Will, if that's what you'd like
  • If you'd like guidance on the effects of Inheritance Tax, we can help with that too
  • It’s up to you whether or not you receive regular updates about our care
  • As family, you're welcome to visit us any time – just let us know

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your Will to St Peter's Hospice. This is more than end-of-life care - this is family.

“Why I’ve left a gift in my Will”

Coral Harrison decided to leave a gift in her Will after Geoff, her husband of 55 years, was cared for by the staff at St Peter’s Hospice.

“When Geoff was given a terminal diagnosis, we were supported at home by Carolyn, our hospice nurse. She was amazing and such a support to both of us. Then Geoff went into the In-Patient Unit at the Hospice for the last few days of his life.

“Leaving a gift in my Will to St Peter's Hospice gives me the comfort of knowing that someone else will benefit from a community nurse like Carolyn. That support and guidance at a time when you feel most vulnerable is priceless.”

Emma's Story

Diagnosed with cancer in her breast, lung, liver and spine, 33-year-old Emma came to St. Peter’s Hospice after deciding to have no more treatment.

"When I arrived, I didn’t know what to expect. But it’s been brilliant. I’ve had better care here than anywhere else. I’ve had massages and other complimentary therapy, and have done the wellbeing course. I’ve used the emotional support service too.

"The staff are fantastic. They listen, help with medication and find solutions for you. In fact, they feel more like friends to me – I couldn’t ask for more. I wish I’d known about St. Peter’s Hospice earlier in my cancer journey, but I’m so glad I found it."
