It is a common myth that you have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will but nothing could be further from the truth. So after taking care of your family and friends, you will be amazed at what one final gift, no matter how big or small, can do.
Legacies have enabled us to provide vital support for people across Oxfordshire for 41 years and Sobell House owes its continued existence to people kindly remembering us in their Wills.
Our annual legacy income is enough to fund nearly a quarter of a year’s care for the in and out patients supported by Sobell House. Last year, gifts in Wills contributed 30% of our total income. Thanks to our supporters making donations in Wills, thousands of families in Oxfordshire have been able to benefit from the specialist and compassionate care given by our hospice staff and volunteers. If we increase the amount donated through legacies we can increase the number of people we care for.
Without this generous support we would quite simply not be able to meet the demand for our hospice services. We ask that you please consider leaving a gift in your Will, however large or small, to help ensure that we can continue to offer our services to those who need them in the future, whether they are at home, in the Hospice or our local hospital.
How your Will can help
Kindly remembering Sobell House in your Will will enable us to be there for people when we are needed most. A gift in your Will can help us be here for people and their families, in the future, every hour of every single day. Making moments matter, packing precious memories into the time we have.
Legacies also help to ensure that adult hospice care in Oxfordshire is free for one and all!
A gift in your Will can be a specific sum of money, a share of your estate, or specific items. Supporting us in this way will not cost you a penny now and it could also help reduce your liability for Inheritance Tax. Just a small percentage of your estate, once you have provided for your loved ones, could make a big difference to us and the community we serve.
Sobell House in numbers:
||to run all of Sobell House services for one day
||to care for one patient on the ward for one whole day
||will enable several families to receive emotional support from a social worker because when someone is very ill many people may be affected, including children
After you have provided for family and friends please remember Sobell House in your Will.
Any gift you leave will make a difference.
Thank you for thinking of leaving us a gift in your Will
