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.
