A gift for the future

Leave a legacy that lives on to benefit future generations

Choosing to leave a legacy donation is a wonderful way to make a lasting difference and support a cause you truly care about. All gifts in Wills to Frimley Health Charity have a real positive impact on patients and families at the Trust’s three hospitals – Frimley Park, Heatherwood and Wexham Park.

In recent months donations to Frimley Health Charity have been used to support our hospitals during the fight against coronavirus. In the longer term, Gifts in Wills, no matter how large or small, will make a valuable contribution to the comfort and care of patients and their loved ones. From newborn babies on the Neonatal ward, to dementia sufferers and patients battling long term illnesses.

There are a number of different kinds of legacies; the most common of these are described below:

This is a specified sum of money. In order to leave a pecuniary bequest, you must state the exact figure in your will.

This is a percentage of the remainder of your estate once the needs of your family have been met and the executors have made all the outgoing payments and other legacies or bequests.

This is when you leave a specified item of value, such as a painting, a piece of jewellery or property or shares. You should ensure that this item is adequately described in your will to avoid any confusion.

Support patients and families in your local area

Gifts in Wills can be specified as ‘unrestricted’ which means the Charity invests in resources in hospitals where the need is most urgent. If there is a department close to your heart, you can choose to leave a ‘restricted’ gift to support your chosen area.
