Gift in Your Will

Leave a Gift in your Will

Many people choose to leave a gift to Hospice of the Valleys because it enables them to make a real difference to local people’s lives, without a penny having to be donated now.

Each gift is special to us. If you choose to leave a gift you will be helping us to continue to provide free of charge specialist care and support to the people of Blaenau Gwent, who need it the most.

There are several kinds of gifts you can leave.

A cash gift or ‘pecuniary gift’

This is when you choose to leave a single, precise cash gift from your estate.

A specific gift

This type of gift is usually something like property or an individual valuable item, such as an antique or piece of jewellery.

A share of your estate or ‘residuary’ gift

After you’ve provided for your loved ones and taxes have been paid, you could choose to leave a share, or the full remainder (the residue) of your estate to the hospice. This means that your estate is passed on to those you care about as well as supporting hospice care into the future.

You can include any of these when making a Will. If you have already made your Will, you could make a codicil. This is a document that makes a small change to a Will.

If you do decide to remember Hospice of the Valleys in your Will, please ask that your solicitor uses our name, postal address and registered charity number.
