Legacies... leaving a special gift

A large proportion of our voluntary income comes from gifts that people leave to us in their wills. It is straightforward to do and makes a big impact on the work we do.

Making a will

A will is essential in order to ensure that people are aware of your wishes when you die. It is usual to make a will via your solicitor. At this time, you will be able to advise of any charitable requests you wish to make. This may take the form of a pecuniary legacy, which is a specific amount, or a residual legacy which means that what is left after all debts and others bequests are made, will be paid to the charity.

You will need the name and address of our charity as follows:

Saint John of God Hospitaller Services
Saint Bede’s House
Morton Park Way
Co Durham

Registered charity no. 1108428

Further information about making a will can be found on the Government’s Directgov website
