How can I leave a legacy to Tynedale Hospice at Home

There are three different ways you could leave us a special gift in your will…

    • Leave us a percentage of your estate, after you have specified your wishes for your loved ones (This is known as a residuary legacy)
    • Leave us a fixed sum of money (This is known as a pecuniary legacy)
    • Leave us a specific gift or object, such as property, stocks and shares or personal items such as jewellery (This is known as a specific legacy)

If you would like to help us in this way, the best thing to do is contact a solicitor, who will talk you through the options and amend or write your will accordingly.
