Wills and Legacies

Leaving a gift in your Will to Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care means you can make a real difference to local people living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer.

A gift in your Will, of any value, will help us continue to provide the supportive and end of life care which we offer at the Hospice in Farnham, the Beacon Centre in Guildford, in patients’ own homes and in the community. But only one in seven of us who make a Will includes a gift to charity.

For many people living on a fixed income, retired or with growing families, giving in their lifetime can be difficult. Donating through a gift in your Will (known as a legacy) is an attractive alternative, enabling you to give from your estate after your death. It is also a very tax-efficient way of giving, as gifts to charity are exempt from Inheritance Tax. Also, if you pledge at least 10% of your estate to charity, you will benefit from a lower rate of inheritance tax (36% instead of 40%) on the rest.

For further information about leaving a legacy to Phyllis Tuckwell, download our Legacy leaflet. To find out about our annual Make a Will Fortnight, contact our Finance department: 01252 729400 or finance@pth.org.uk. All conversations will be kept confidential.

If you decide to leave a gift in your Will to Phyllis Tuckwell, no matter what size, you can opt for your name to be added to our hardback Legacy Book after you have died, which is displayed at the Hospice in Farnham, so that your generosity can be remembered for years to come. You can also have your name added to our online Legacy Book, enabling your family and friends to see it at any time.
