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