Leave a smile for the future with a gift in your Will

At Children’s Hospice South West we provide help and support for children and young people who are living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families. Thanks to you, we are able to look after more than 550 children every year in the South West. Of these, some come to us for palliative care, some for emergency care and many for planned respite and a rare opportunity for a break away.  

We also provide a loving and caring place for every member of every family staying with us. Parents can relax, be themselves and do what any parent wants to do – be a parent again without having to worry about round the clock care. Brothers and sisters, who might be feeling isolated, scared or confused, have a chance to play together, share some special times and have a little fun, too. 

By remembering us in your Will, you will be part of our future.

How you can help

The annual cost to run our three hospices is in excess of £11 million and this is likely to increase significantly over time. Most of this will be provided by the generosity of our supporters.  As you can imagine, legacies are vital to us because they enable us to make plans for the years ahead. So, by remembering us in your Will you will be part of our future.  You’ll enable us to make plans to improve our current services, develop new ones and find more ways to make the most of short and precious lives. 

Who knows what our future holds?

That’s why it is so important to make a Will. It is the only way you can guarantee that your family, friends and favourite causes get what you want from your Estate. If you die without making a Will then you have no control over where your Estate goes after your death. Your very special gifts to relatives and charities, like Children’s Hospice South West, may be lost if you die without making a Will. 

Whatever its size, your legacy makes a big difference to short and precious lives.
