Why do I need a will?

Making a will is one of the most important things you can do to safeguard your family and ensure that after death your wishes are carried out.

  • It allows you to recognise special relationships and remember favourite charities.
  • It may also allow you to avoid unnecessary taxes on your estate.

Without a will, the legal system will decide who receives what from your estate.

How to I make/change my will?

  • To make or change your will, you will need to visit your solicitor.
  • Before doing so, it’s a good idea to put together a list of your assets (what you own) and liabilities (what you owe).
  • This will help you work out what your estate will be worth.

How do I leave a gift in my will to Hospice Care Kenya?

There are two ways you can leave a gift in your will to us – before you visit your solicitor, you may want to think about which you prefer – we have provided some example wording;

  • Residuary Gift
    This is where you can leave the remains of your estate after specific gifts have been distributed, and any debts have been paid.
    “I give free of Inheritance Tax (XX%) of the residue of my estate to Hospice Care Kenya…….”
  • Pecuniary Gift
    This is where you can leave a specific sum to the charity.
    “I give free of Inheritance Tax the sum of £XX to Hospice Care Kenya…”

Please ensure that whichever you choose is followed by:
“…whose registered office is Hospice House, 34 – 44 Britannia Street, London, WC1X 9JG, registered charity number 1141469, to be used for its general charitable purposes. I declare that the receipt from their Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my executors.”

Thank you for remembering Hospice Care Kenya.
