Leaving a gift to Forest Holme Hospice Charity in your will is a very special way of helping to secure the future of excellent and innovative palliative and end of life care for future generations within Dorset. It enables us to plan ahead to help meet the needs of our ageing population within the county and to ensure that everyone has access to the best possible care and support.

What kind of gift can I leave in my Will?

  • Residuary bequest – This is the balance of your estate after tax (if any), expenses and other types of legacies have been paid. You can leave the whole, or a share of the residue to Forest Holme Hospice Charity.
  • Pecuniary legacy – This is an exact sum of money (e.g £3,000).
  • Specific bequest – This is a gift of personal possessions, such as furniture, jewellery, house, car etc. With the passage of time, pecuniary legacies will lose value because of inflation so you may wish to review your Will every few years.

Alternatively, you can divide your estate into shares or percentages, so that each of your beneficiaries will gain if the value of your estate increases between the time of making your Will and death.
