We are so grateful to everyone who chooses to leave us a gift in their will. These gifts are incredibly important to us and mean that we can keep providing vital services to those that need them.


Types of legacy

There are three types of gifts you could leave to Peace Hospice Care:

  • Residuary Gift - a portion, or the entirety, of everything that remains after other specific gifts, expenses and taxes have been paid.
  • Pecuniary Gift - a gift of a set amount of money. Speak to your solicitor about index-linking the gift to maintain its value in the future.
  • Specific Gift - a specific item, such as a piece of furniture or jewellery.

We have sample legacy clauses which you can use, along with your solicitor, to state your wishes clearly. We also have a sample codicil which can be used to add a gift to an existing will.

Whichever type of gift you choose to leave; you must include our name, address and charity number to ensure that the legacy is valid:

Peace Hospice Care, Peace Drive, Watford, WD17 3PH

Registered Charity Number: 1002878
