A Gift in your Will

Please leave a gift to St Raphael's Hospice. Remember St Raphael's Hospice through a gift in your Will and become one of our Lifelong Friends.

A gift in your Will is one of the most valuable ways you can support St Raphael’s Hospice. The hospice relies on your support to provide our services, which we could not provide without donations and legacies.

  • We provide palliative care to over 1000 patients each year
  • It costs over £6 million each year to provide our services
  • Of these costs the NHS provides a grant of just over £1 million
  • This leaves over £5 million to be raised from fundraising and legacies

Every day people like Tom Lackey, David Rice and Eddie ‘Irongran’ Brocklesby are doing legendary things to help others. You can be a legend too. After you’ve taken care of loved ones in your Will, why not think about including a gift to a charity.
