Leaving a gift in your Will for Weldmar Hospicecare

After providing for your family and friends, by leaving a gift in your will to Weldmar Hospicecare you could, in a very special way, help to ensure the continuation of caring work after your lifetime.

Did you know that money left to us in Wills contribute almost 30% of our income, meaning that one in three patients is cared for (by people like Bonnie from our Weldmar at Home team, pictured above) directly as a result of of these gifts? Because we don’t receive the money now but in the future, it means that we can build and plan ahead to make sure we are there for future generations of families in Dorset.

Any gift you make will be exempt from inheritance tax so all of it can be used by Weldmar.
