Gifts in Wills

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the best ways to support Bury Hospice. It can also be tax efficient to do so too. 

You will need to take advice about how to be tax efficient when leaving money in your Will but on the Government website they state the allowance, which is:

  • Up to £325,000 left in a will is tax free, anything above that is taxed at 40%. By donating to your favourite charity, you decide what happens with your inheritance. 

If you leave us a gift in your will, it will be exempt from inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax. It costs you nothing now, but it can do a huge amount of good for generations to come.

Gifts in wills make a real and lasting contribution. They are a vital source of funding for Bury Hospice. Please don’t think that gifts in wills have to be a large sums of money; any amount will make a difference to us, as the care of one in five of our patients is paid for each year in this way. Gifts left in wills also allowed us to pilot our Hospice at Home, which is now one of our core services.

We organise a Will Week event annually, where you can get a free, basic will, in return for leaving a donation. To find out more please contact Paul Fennelly on 0161 725 9800 Ext. 209 or email
