Gifts in Wills

Thank you for considering to remember Rainbows in your Will. After you have looked after your loved ones, leaving part of your remaining estate to Rainbows in your Will is a special way of making sure we can be here, to care for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, whenever they need us. We rely on these gifts in Wills to provide our vital specialised and dedicated care - quite simply we couldn’t be here without your support.

Each year, these gifts vary but they’re all essential in helping us provide a place for children and young people to play, laugh and receive the best possible care. Gifts in Wills also allow us to support mums, dads, brothers, sisters and grandparents – because life-limiting illnesses affect the whole family.

Together, we can help even more. But at Rainbows, we appreciate leaving a gift in your Will is a big decision, so please decide in your own time. If we can help, please ask, our team will always answer your questions quickly and honestly.

What sort of gift should I leave?

Whether it be 5% or 50% of your residual estate, a property or a set amount, you can shape your gift however you like.

No matter how big or small a gift, you will be amazed how much can be achieved, not to mention the feeling of hope it inspires amongst staff, patients and their families.

Your solicitor/Will writer can talk you through the options. You will need our full address and charity number to do this:

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People
Lark Rise
LE11 2HS
Registered Charity Number: 1014051.
