Why gifts in Wills matter to us

A gift in your Will can help us to be there for patients and their families and carers every hour of every single day, now and in the future. We can ensure they make every moment matter, packing precious memories into the time we have.


If you decide to leave us a gift in your Will, it means that when someone aged 18 and over needs our help and support we can give them the dignity to face the day, free of charge.

Over the past 35 years, gifts in Wills have helped us to build, maintain, refurbish and extend our two Hospices, ensuring we can provide the highest quality of care in comfortable surroundings.

Today these gifts are as vital as ever allowing us to invest in the new facilities and clinical care to ensure we can continue to look after people with increasingly complex needs

It is a common myth that you have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will but nothing could be further from the truth. So after taking care of your family and friends, you’ll be amazed at what one final gift, no matter how big or small, can do.

Legacy donations play a vital role in our work. In fact they account for 19% of our income, if we can increase the amount donated through legacies we can increase the number of people we care for. Whatever the amount we are extremely grateful for any gift that’s been left to us as it will continue to ensure we can care for adults in Cornwall.

That is why leaving us a gift in your Will to Cornwall Hospice Care could be so powerful.
