Leave a gift in your will.

Halton Haven Hospice gives care and support to local people when they need it most.

Gifts in wills are so important for our work. They allow us to be here for those who need us.

A gift in your will could be a lifeline for a young mum battling cancer in Runcorn, a bereaved gentleman in Widnes, or a vulnerable and lonely lady from Frodsham who visits Day Hospice once a week.

Any gift you leave, large or small, will bring care, compassion and relief to the people of Halton and surrounding areas during the most difficult times of their lives.

For more information on leaving a gift to the Haven in your will, please contact our fundraising team on 01928 712728 or fundraising@haltonhaven.co.uk or speak to your solicitor.

 

You don’t have to tear your heir out!

You do not have to leave a large donation or even a lump sum to the charity in your will. Many people choose to leave just 1% of their estate, meaning 99% will go to their family.

If you do include Halton Haven Hospice in your will, please also include our registered charity number: 702654.

 

Letter of wishes

A letter of wishes is a document which accompanies your will. It is not legally binding but it can inform your family and executors as to your personal wishes.

You do not need a solicitor to write your letter of wishes; you can write it yourself.

Simply write the letter, make your family aware of it, keep it in a safe place and give a copy to a friend. If you are including a gift to a charity in your will, make sure you include the registered charity number. Halton Haven Hospice’s charity number is 702654.

 

Will Week

Every year, Halton Haven Hospice runs Will Week, a fundraising campaign in which participating local solicitors waive their fees so that you can make or update your will in return for a donation to the Hospice.

Will Week usually takes place in April each year.

For more information on Will Week, please visit www.haltonhaven.org.uk/events or contact the fundraising team on 01928 712 728 or fundraising@haltonhaven.co.uk.
