Three steps to leaving your lasting legacy

Take note of our charity details

If you would like to leave a gift to Thames Hospice in your Will you will need the following key information when meeting a solicitor:

Charity name: Thames Hospice

Charity number: 1108298

    Address: Thames Hospice, Windsor Road, Maidenhead SL6 2DN

    Decide what type of gift you would like to give

    We are grateful to receive any type of gift to Thames Hospice, there are 3 types of gift in Wills.

    A share of an estate – this is called a ‘residuary gift’, it’s a percentage of your estate. One of the advantages of a residuary legacy is that it has the benefit of being inflation-proof and means you’re less likely to need to update your Will in the future.

    A specific sum of money - this is called a pecuniary gift

      A specific legacy - this is a gift of a particular item, such as a car, property or jewellery
