Gifts in Wills

Leave a lasting legacy for future generations by remembering The Kirkwood.

When you decide to make a Will, we understand you will want to make sure that you take care of your family and loved ones first.

After you have remembered those close to you, we hope you will also remember The Kirkwood. A gift in your Will can be big or small. £200, £5,000, £100,000… they all make a real difference.

Whatever the size of your gift, it will mean that we can support whoever comes into our care, along with their loved ones, with quiet professionalism and calm dignity as we have been doing since March 1987.

The entire history of The Kirkwood revolves around compassion, commitment and desire to help as many people in our community as possible. From our first fundraising event in July 1981, which raised £4.50, to the Capital Appeal in 2012, which raised £3 million and enabled us to build a state-of-the-art in-patient unit, we have relied on the generosity of our community. In return, we provide care for the community when they need it most.


Our promise to you

We will use your special gift wisely and effectively. We value every pound that is donated to us and put it to the best possible use. You don’t have to tell us if choose to remember the Hospice in your Will – we respect your right to privacy.

If you want to, you can come and visit the Hospice to see our services first-hand before adding a gift to The Kirkwood in your Will. Please let us know.

Gifts in wills enable us to continue providing the best possible care and support to patients and their families when they really need us. Your kind support helps us to make the time people have left, however long this may be, as meaningful as possible. I’m so grateful to those who remember Kirkwood in their Wills.
