Making a Will can seem a daunting and difficult task. But in reality, it can be a practical way to give peace of mind to you and your loved ones. For this reason, it’s very important to keep everything up-to-date, so that your wishes are reflected and your assets are left to those you intend them to be.
Most people update their Will when there has been a change in their life. This can include marriage, a bereavement, children and grandchildren arriving or changes in your financial situation. A change in tax laws can also prompt a Will update.
Wills are legal documents, so we always recommended speaking with a solicitor or financial advisor about drafting up your Will.
How can you help?
When updating or creating a new Will, you could consider leaving a gift in your Will to Bluebell Wood. This can make a vital difference to a child with a shortened life expectancy and complex medical conditions. You can find out more with our downloadable Legacy Guide.
By leaving a gift to our hospice in your will, you can give our children and their families the chance to be supported in the best possible way at the most difficult of times. You can do this by adding to your existing Will through our Codicil Form; which you can request from our Legacy, Trust and In Memory Fundraiser, Julie Booth, by calling 01909 517365 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
There are several ways to leave a gift to our charity:
- A particular object of worth, like property, jewellery or artwork
- A specific amount of money from your estate
- A share/percentage of your estate.
If you’d like to leave a gift to Bluebell Wood, please include our name, address and charity number:
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice,
Registered charity number: 1076958.
