Everyone should make a will because it’s the only way to make sure that when you die, the people and good causes you care about benefit in the way you choose.
Including St Catherine’s in your will is a wonderful way to make sure your care for your loved ones and your local community can live on, leaving a lasting legacy in your memory.
Gifts in wills are so important to St Catherine’s – they fund
the care we provide for 1 in 4 of our patients and families.

As a local charity, we’re funded by our local community and exist to make life better for local terminally ill people and their families.
Thanks to the wonderful generosity of people like you, we’re able to provide all our services free of charge.
For some people, that’s coming to outpatient appointments to get advice on managing their illness. For others it’s attending virtual Living Well Centre sessions to benefit from therapeutic activities like guided relaxation, social quizzes or music therapy.
Other people with the most complex medical conditions come to stay in our wards where our nurses help manage their pain or control the symptoms of their illness. Or maybe help them to enjoy a relaxing bubbly bath in our special Jacuzzi bath.
The majority of our care is provided in the comfort and familiarity of people’s own homes, where they can stay close to family, friends, pets and the things precious to them.
We also offer emotional, welfare and spiritual support to the people we care for and those closest to them. And as you’d expect, we continue to support people after bereavement.
Your generosity can make the end of life for someone in your community the best it can possibly be.
