Leave a forever thank you to your NHS charity

A gift in your Will to your NHS Charity is a thank you that can last forever.

Gifts in Wills have a lasting impact: whether it’s being there for our wonderful NHS staff, giving patients extra comfort and care, providing cutting edge equipment, or driving innovative research to benefit future generations. For more information on the huge impact your donations and legacies have, please go to the Your Impact page.

When you leave a gift in your Will to your NHS charity, you’re saying thank you in a way that will carry on making a positive difference long after you’re gone.

Having made arrangements to leave gifts for family, friends or loved ones in your will, a legacy or bequest to Hywel Dda Health Charities is a way of ensuring that others might receive support from us long into the future.

A common misconception is that a legacy has to be an enormous sum of money. This is not the case. No matter how small or how large your gift you can be sure it will make a difference to our work.

Should you decide to support Hywel Dda Health Charities in this way, you must first decide on what type of gift you would like to leave – a pecuniary bequest (a fixed sum of money) or a residuary bequest (a percentage of your estate). We advise that you consult a solicitor on what is best for your particular circumstances.

We recommend that you use a solicitor to draft your will to ensure that the wording of your will meets your wishes. A properly drafted will ensure that your wishes will be honoured.

We are often asked if gifts can be used to fund certain work or purchase a particular piece of equipment. We endeavour to abide by our supporters’ wishes at all times but please remember that by the time your will becomes effective the health care landscape may well have changed in terms of equipment and treatments. We would therefore request that you donate to a specific fund as opposed a specific purpose so your donation is used in the best possible way.
