Gifts in wills
Let your legacy be our future
One in four of our patients are supported thanks to someone leaving Oakhaven a gift in their will and this is the perfect way to help make a real difference to someone during the end of their life and help us make every moment matter.
Making a Will is important as it gives you the peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be respected. After providing for family and friends, choosing to make a gift in your Will to Oakhaven will help us in the future support and care for those whose lives have been impacted by a life limiting illness. We are very grateful to receive gits of all sizes.
You may feel that making a will in these uncertain times is difficult. This is why we are offering a simple will for free (normal cost would be £90) through our partnership with Guardian Angel, an online will writing service, so that you can make a will from the comfort of your own home. It really is very easy, just click on the link: Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel also offers a telephone service too, call 0800 773 4014 to discuss making your Will over the phone.
There is no obligation for you to leave us a gift but gifts from wills make a huge difference to our work and writing a will with Guardian Angel takes just 15 minutes, it’s safe and all wills are legally binding and checked by experts.
So why not make sure that your mind is at peace, knowing that your wishes are all written down and you can rest assured that your wishes will be respected. Your final words can leave a legacy that you will always be remembered for.
"At a time when I was in a very dark place, feeling broken hearted and isolated, past memories of such happy times rushing through my mind, the future just a blur; I had no vision of how I would ever come to terms with the loss of my wonderful husband.
Oakhaven gently and patiently guided me through difficult days. The chaplain, one to one counselling, support groups, meeting other people and making new friends. The volunteers always so welcoming and warm hearted. I am exceedingly grateful for the palliative care they provided my husband in a beautiful and peaceful setting as well as the continued support to help me look to the future with renewed hope.
A personal legacy to Oakhaven is very poignant, not only to those that are ill but also to those that are bereaved. As its name implies, a haven, a place of comfort, a place where family and friends can meet, a place to laugh and smile with their loved ones, as well as a place to pay their last respects, in a kind, respectful and caring environment.
A legacy is humbling and priceless - to help others is a gift in itself."
