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.

How to leave a gift in your Will

There are three types of gift:

Residuary Legacy

This is a share or all of the balance of your estate once tax (if any), expenses and other types of legacies have been paid.

Pecuniary Legacy

A fixed amount of money. With the passage of time, pecuniary legacies will lose value due to inflation so you may wish to review your Will every few years.

Specific Legacy

This is a gift of a specific item such as a personal possession, land, car or property.
