1 in 4 patients in our care is supported thanks to the generosity of people who leave us a gift in their Will.

If you’ve already included a gift in your Will to the hospice, thank you so much for remembering us. We’d love to hear what inspired you to support us in this way. If you’d like to share your story with us, please email Beatrice, our Gifts in Wills Manager or give her a call on 020 8525 3025.

One of our first legacies was the Cambridge Lodge Estate which was anonymously donated to the Religious Sisters of Charity in 1904 and formed the foundation of the hospice.

114 years on, legacies continue to be vital to our work and have helped us to not only benefit patients but also their families and carers, enabling them to receive tailored support whether at the hospice or in the comfort of their own homes.

Your gift, however large or small will in years to come help us to continue helping patients in our care to live life well until death.
