Make a Will Make a Difference

Making a Will

You can never be certain what will happen in the future. By making a Will, you can ensure that your money and possessions will be shared out in accordance with your wishes, thereby providing security for your family and friends.

When it comes to making a Will, your loved ones and family should come first in your thoughts. But many people also like to remember a special charity that is close to their hearts, and Francis House Children’s Hospice is one such charity.

Perhaps you would be kind enough to remember the families who come to Francis House in your legacy.

Including Francis House in your Will

By including a legacy to Francis House your gift will help others make their own precious memories.

The expert care and support that we provide to our families is very costly. Our annual running costs regularly exceed £4 million.  We receive little support from the government and we rely heavily upon the support of people like you.

 Almost £1 million of the £4 million that we need to fund our work each year comes from bequests.

Francis House Children’s Hospice supports hundreds of extraordinary families from across the north west of England by providing care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions and life-threatening conditions and support for their families.

What to do next

Making a Will isn’t difficult or expensive but we would always recommend that you use a solicitor to prepare the Will for you.  Only a properly drawn up Will is recognised by law, even if you have written down your wishes.
