Leaving a gift in your Will is a great way to ensure that we can continue to make a difference, not only now but in the future. In fact almost 1 in 5 of our patients are cared for through the income we receive from legacies. North London Hospice relies greatly on people leaving gifts in their Wills to provide vital services to the local community. There are three main ways to leave a gift to North London Hospice.
Family and Friends First Legacy
At North London Hospice we know that caring for your family is a priority. However, after making provision for your family and friends you can leave whatever is left in your estate (known as the residue) to North London Hospice, either alone or alongside other charities. Following new rules set out in the budget, it is possible to leave a gift to charity without impacting too much on gifts to your loved ones.
Cash donations are always very welcome. But do remember that cash donations tend to decrease in value over time. To avoid this you can either index link your gift or review it periodically to retain its original value.
Legacy in Kind
Specific items such as property, shares, jewelry or furniture can be gifted. Leaving the contents of your home as a gift in your Will is most welcome as our shops can then realise the value of your gift for the Hospice.

Free Wills Month – June 2017
Following the success of our previous will month held in November 2016, we are delighted to announce that three legal firms local to North London Hospice have kindly offered their will writing services free of charge for the whole of June. In exchange for a voluntary donation, or a pledge to leave a legacy to the Hospice, these legal firms will be willing to write a basic will, a pair of mirror wills, or a simple amendment made to your will, free of charge. This is a brilliant way of getting your affairs in order whilst supporting your local Hospice at the same time.
If you would like to be sent a list of legal firms or more information about Free Wills Month, please do not hesitate to contact our legacy officer on 020 8446 2288 or firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the form below.
