Leaving a gift in your will is a very special way of supporting us and indeed 1 in 5 of our patients are cared for thanks to kind gifts.
Leaving a gift in your will, however large or small, can make a real difference. If the time is right for you to remember Northern Ireland Hospice in your will it can help provide more hours of care and support.
With an ageing older population and a rise in Non-malignant diseases there is an increasing need for hospice services.We want to ensure that we can continue providing good quality, professional and compassionate end of life care for future generations whenever and wherever they need it.
Local man Kenneth Davidson was diagnosed with cancer in August 2013. Despite undergoing gruelling surgery he became unwell again in January 2014 and doctors broke the devastating news to Ken and his devoted family that his illness was terminal and he only had a few weeks to live.
Ken was subsequently admitted to Hospice to ensure that his pain and symptoms were managed. Knowing that his illness was terminal turned Ken’s life upside down yet he felt so comfortable and secure there. Incredibly touched by the incredible care that he had received, Ken advised his family that he wished to change his will and kindly left us a gift of £5,000. Thanks to his amazing generosity, we were able to fund 166 hours of nursing care.
At Hospice we are indebted to Ken, and so many others, for thinking of us in this way. His wonderful gift has had such a positive impact on many patients province wide, allowing us to continue to care for them and their families.

Every March we hold a "Make a Will Month" campaign. During this time local participating solicitors waive their professional will writing fee and clients are invited to make a discretionary donation to us. If you participate in “Make a Will Month” there is no obligation to leave a charitable gift to us and all information will be treated with utmost confidentiality.
A gift in your will, no matter how big or small, will give local people and their families better choices, hope, support and specialist care both now and in the future.
