Gifts in Wills

Naturally the interests of those close to you come first, but once you have provided for them,
please consider leaving a gift to St Leonard’s Hospice.

You might decide to leave a specific sum of money, or a share of your estate after you have made other gifts. It could be £50 or £50,000, a piece of jewellery or an antique. Leaving the residue, or part of the residue, is also a popular way of giving as you do not have to decide on an amount, you just need to decide what proportion of your estate you would like to leave St Leonard’s.

Your Solicitor will need our address and charity number so that your Will can be correctly worded:

St Leonard’s Hospice
185 Tadcaster Road
YO24 1GL

Registered charity number 509294

For further information, please call Karen Johnson on 01904 777777 or email

It is estimated that only 3 in 10 people make a Will, so make a promise to yourself to do so – perhaps fulfilling a New Year’s resolution, or as part of a “spring clean”. Leaving a gift in your Will doesn't cost anything now, and any gift large or small makes a difference as it is a wonderful way to help others.
