Gifts in Wills

It’s very difficult to think about what will happen at the end of our lives. But making a Will is the best way to make sure that your loved ones are looked after, and many people also choose to support the causes that are important to them as part of the legacy that they leave behind.

A gift of even 1% of your estate could make an enormous difference to our patients,
and your loved ones would still inherit 99%.

When the time is right for you, leaving a gift in your Will to St Margaret’s is very simple.

All you need is:

Our name: St Margaret’s Somerset Hospice, Heron Drive, TA1 5HA

Did you know…?


Remembering St Margaret’s in your Will is an incredibly special way to support us. It costs you nothing today but, in leaving us a gift, you are taking the time to care and help families across Somerset make every day count for years to come. Families like Caroline’s:

“St Margaret’s are not just here because I am dying. They are here for so much more.

They’ve enabled me to be at home with my family as much as I can, and have helped me face my reality. There’s no one else who could have given me and my family the time, support and care they’ve provided.

Will you choose to do something incredible too? A donation to St Margaret’s can change the life of someone like me in our community”

If you would like to let us know that you’re leaving a gift in your Will to St Margaret’s, we’ll send you an exclusive pledger sunflower pin badge. You can also choose to receive updates from us to hear about the work we do and learn how your legacy would make a difference.

Gifts left to registered charities are free from Inheritance Tax, so including St Margaret’s as a beneficiary in your Will could also help you and your family by reducing the amount of tax due on your estate. At St Margaret’s Hospice we have no legal expertise and cannot give legal advice, so we always advise that you use a formal route (consulting with a solicitor and/or creating your will through Kwil) to ensure that your Will is valid and covers all legal formalities.

For executors and solicitors: we recognise that administrating an estate can be a long and difficult process, especially for those who have lost a loved one. So if there is a gift to St Margaret’s in the Will that you are executing, we are very happy to assist you in the process.

To find out more about the help we can offer, or to arrange for a gift to be paid to St Margaret’s from an estate, please contact our Legacy Team on 01823 365603 or by emailing
