Leaving a gift in your Will
Once you have looked after your family and friends please think about leaving a gift to St Christopher’s in your Will
Why leave St Christopher’s a gift in your Will?
St Christopher’s Hospice serves a population of 1.5 million across the five boroughs of south-east London; Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. We are one of the largest hospices in the UK, with 38 beds across three specialist wards. Our extensive day care services include specialist clinical care, as well as supportive care services and creative and complementary therapies, and, on any given day, our nurses are supporting over 600 people in their own homes.
All of our specialist palliative care and family care services are provided free.
St Christopher’s runs regular Will Week events where local solicitors kindly waive their usual fee to create or update your Will, in return for a donation to St Christopher’s Hospice.
It costs more than £18 million to deliver all of our services. Each year, we need to raise almost £12 million. This means that we rely on supporters and local communities. Legacies account for around half the money we raise.
Dame Cicely’s words ring true as much today as when she first said them: “You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”
Once you have looked after your family and friends please think about leaving a gift to St Christopher’s in your Will. By doing so you can help make sure that we continue to fulfil Dame Cicely’s legacy and ensure that everyone we care for gets the support they deserve.
