Remembering the hospice in your will.

The charity has been very fortunate over the years in that patients have remembered the Hospice when writing a will. A legacy bequeathed to Paul Sartori Foundation can make a huge difference to the amount of care that we are able to provide.  If you are able to remember the Foundation in your will then you are also  helping to give care to someone living with a life limiting illness.  With your help we can ensure that every one nearing the end of their life can be given help and care by our specialist team and receive that care in their own home if that is their choice.

Why make a will?

Making a will is important so that your property passes into the hands of your nearest and dearest.  Having a will makes it easier for those people left behind, misunderstandings can be minimised and your wishes can be carried out.

It could also be  a way to give a final  and grateful gift to the Paul Sartori Foundation.

If you are planning to make or update a will , we suggest that you speak to a solicitor or similar appropriate agency for independent advice.

How do you leave a legacy?

There are two main ways to leave a legacy or a bequest in your will.  Your solicitor will be able to look over everything for you.  One option is to leave a pecuniary bequest –  this is a specific cash amount which you state in your will.  The other way is to leave a residuary bequest- this is when you leave a share of your estate after all other bequests have been met and inheritance tax and expenses are paid.

Can you change an existing legacy?

If you have already made a will and simply want to make some changes, you may have to add a codicil.  This is a separate instruction which is kept with your will.  Your solicitor will be able to advise you.
