What will your legacy be?

Help us to be there for future generations of patients and families in our care

Father, mother and child blowing bubbles

Legacies, also known as gifts in wills, play a huge part in helping us continue to develop LOROS as a place of care and support for terminally ill patients, their families and carers.

Current legacy income for the Hospice makes up around 15% of a typical year’s income but is the result of decisions made in wills in the past, sometimes many years ago. That is why deciding to include a gift to LOROS in your will today is so important to help us protect the Hospice's long term future.

Leaving LOROS a gift in your will

LOROS is a registered charity. All care for patients and their families is provided free of charge. The Hospice needs to raise £870 per hour to maintain its services, and only a third of this amount is funded by the government. Currently the cost of caring for one in five of our patients is covered by gifts left in wills.

A gift in your will to LOROS costs you nothing today but should secure the future of the Hospice.
