Making a Will is a vitally important way of looking after those people who matter most to us and making sure they will be taken care of when we are no longer around.

Including a gift to Weston Hospicecare in your Will is an extra way of looking after people you care about too. They may be your own family or friends and even people you will never know but a gift on your Will can help make sure Weston Hospicecare will be there for them if ever they need us.

Anyone can support our work in this way and every gift makes a difference. Over the past 4 years gifts left in people’s Wills have funded the care of 1 in 5 of our patients and are one of our most important sources of income. Those gifts have come in all shapes and sizes but all of them, no matter how large or small, are important to us.  We can turn each one into vital care and support for our patients and their families. (One day your gift could help ensure that they will all receive the practical and emotional care they need.)

Your gift could help someone to be looked after at home by one of our Community Nurse Specialists and our Hospice at Home Nurses or come to our Day Hospice or be cared for in our In-patient Unit. Above all, your gift could ensure that as long as people are affected by life-limiting illnesses, they will be able to receive the help and support that is right for them.

Please consider supporting our work in this very special way.

If you would like to speak to someone about leaving a gift to Weston Hospicecare in your Will, or let us know that you have already done so, please telephone Sally Davis, Trusts, Grants and Legacies Officer on or email

After Simon Platt’s wife, Jackie, was cared for by the Hospice it inspired him to leave a gift to Weston Hospicecare.

“As someone who has personally experienced the difference that Weston Hospicecare’s services can make I am passionate about its work and want to see it continue long into the future. The trust and respect I have for the charity means that I know the money will be used directly to care for patients and their families.”
