Do you have the WILL Power?
Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the ways you can support the Hospice even if you are unable to support us at this time. Your legacy however large or small can help to ensure that future generations have access to our specialist care services for as long as they may need.
“1 in 10 people whom we look after at Halton Haven Hospice are being cared for because of a legacy”
Legacies are an important source of income to the Hospice, but they can be difficult for us to predict. It is helpful to let us know if you have included us in your Will, as we also enjoy having the opportunity to say thank you. If you would like details on how to leave us a gift in your will please contact Shaun Pollard on 01928 712728.
How do I go about making a will?
Work out the sum of your estate by listing all your assets (house, savings, jewellery etc) and subtracting all your liabilities (mortgage, debts etc). The result is your estate total. Next, decide how you would like your assets and possessions to be divided amongst your family and friends. If at this point you do decide to leave a legacy or gift to Halton Haven Hospice or any other cause, there are different ways for you to do so.
A pecuniary legacy – a gift of a fixed sum of money to a named person or organisation. A specific legacy – A gift of a particular item (not money), such as jewellery to a named person or organisation.
A residuary legacy – After all pecuniary and specific bequests have been made and your Expenses accounted for, the remainder of your estate is known as the residue. This should be covered by a Residuary Bequest otherwise the law determines its outcome. The residue can be split between family, friends and your favourite causes.
