Remembering St Catherine’s Hospice in your will
Did you know that one in four of our patients is cared for thanks to gifts left to the hospice by people in their wills?
Remembering St Catherine’s in your will is a simple way of helping us to be there for future generations, and really is the greatest gift you can give. Every gift, in every will, makes a real difference to the care we give to terminally ill people across Surrey and Sussex; people like Shirley:
“This place saved my life. The team here have got me through some of the darkest days. I’ve learnt that it’s OK to have bad days, and it’s OK to cry and be angry at this horrible thing called cancer. But more importantly, I’ve learnt that my life isn’t over. With the help of the wonderful therapies team, I’ve got back on my feet (quite literally) and am ready to live every day as it comes.”
By remembering us in your will, we can be there for more people, like Shirley, when life comes full circle. We depend on local people remembering us in their will, meaning we can give that expert support and care to those who need it most.
