A gift in your Will brings the love and care of your local hospice to people across Ayrshire and Arran who need it.

What is a gift in your Will?

Gifts left to us in Wills (sometimes called legacies) are extremely important to us and help to fund the care for around 1 in 3 of our patients.

A legacy enables you to state that, after you die, a particular part of your estate be given to a person, charity or organisation. It could be a fixed sum of money, a named item such as a piece of jewellery, furniture, property or shares or it could be the remainder of your estate once you have ensured that your family and friends will be looked after.

Why should I consider leaving a gift to Ayrshire Hospice?

Whatever your gift, you will help local people with life limiting illness live well until they die, in comfort and in dignity.  

Our vital work is filled with moments that make people smile during a time that’s difficult for everyone. It’s about making today matter. And you can make tomorrow matter too...

A gift in your Will will be treasured and your kindness remembered, as we care for patients both in the hospice and at home. Our nurses, doctors and other staff know that the hospice would not exist without the generosity of people like you who give gifts that enable our special care to continue.

We rely on people like you choosing to remember us in your Will so we can reach every local family who needs our help - not just now, but for years to come. Whatever your gift, you can be assured that we will spend your money wisely. At the hospice, 80p of every £1 donated goes directly towards patient care with the remaining 20p going towards supporting patient care. Watch the film below to see how your gift really can help.


Did you know that over two thirds of our funding comes from voluntary donations, including gifts in Wills?

If the time is ever right for you to remember a charity in your Will, please remember Ayrshire Hospice. Every gift in every Will, regardless of size, makes a difference to the exceptional and compassionate care that we provide to patients and their families today and in the future. You can leave us even 1% in your Will so those closest to you inherit 99%.
