Gifts in Wills are essential for our caring work
During the past 30 years, many thousands of people from our local community have experienced the compassionate, specialist care that St. Vincent's Hospice provides. We are making every moment matter for people with life-limiting illness, improving quality of life and surrounding their family and friends with an outpouring of sensitive care.
We know that so much of our wonderful work today is made possible because of the kindness and foresight of friends and supporters who included a gift to St. Vincent's in their Will. Gifts in Wills are essential for our caring work and even a small gift would make a huge difference for future generations of local families.
As one of our supporters told us: "I know so many people - friends and neighbours who have been given wonderful care at St. Vincent's. I wanted to include a little something in my Will for the Hospice, so that my gift stays right here in my own community, helping families here for years to come."
Why make a Will?
A Will allows you to plan what will happen to your money and possessions after you die.
After making provisions for family and loved ones, many people are now choosing to leave a gift to a charity from whatever is left over. This is often because the charity has played an important role in their life story. Your solicitor should be able to give you advice on how to do this.
Gifts in Wills, or legacies, can be large or small and can be gifts of money or donations of property or possessions. Legacies do not cost the donor anything during their lifetime.
We appreciate that your Will is a very personal, confidential and private matter. If you would like to include a gift to St. Vincent’s Hospice in your Will it is important to give the correct details to your solicitor to make sure your own wishes are met. Our details are:
Our organisation name: St. Vincent’s Hospice Limited
Our address: Midton Road, Howwood, Renfrewshire PA9 1AF
Our Scottish charity number: SC006888
