Why make a Will?

Your Will gives you the freedom to pass on what is important to you, to your family, friends and charities. It gives you the control to choose what happens to your assets and makes your wishes clear.

How your gift could change lives

By making a gift to Rowcroft in your Will, you’ll help support families through the toughest of times, and you will help patients with life limiting illnesses to make every day the best day possible.

If you would like to visit Rowcroft and see for yourself how your gift will help to continue to care for generations to come, please contact our Legacy Officer on 01803 217405

Your donations and gifts in Wills

75% of Rowcroft’s care is provided thanks to donations and gifts in Wills and your donation will help to fund support in patients’ homes, the community and at the hospice’s Inpatient Unit in Torquay.

Tim’s story of love, loss and legacies

Behind every one of the 2,500 patients who benefit from Rowcroft Hospice’s services each year lies a heart-warming story of a unique journey. Former police officer Tim Stock from Bishopsteignton understands this all too well. Here he shares his own story of how the hospice supported him and his wife Amanda in her final months.

“I met Amanda in 1988; we fell head over heels in love for each other and we married in 1990,” said Tim.

“In 2021, Amanda fell seriously ill with cancer and it became obvious that she was not going to recover. She went to Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit where the care was brilliant, professional, loving and so varied according to her needs. I was included in every part of Amanda’s care and I helped where I could. The staff had time for me as well, and I became part of the Rowcroft family.

“Amanda passed quietly in February 2022 with all the staff around her and with the love and dignity she so deserved.

“For about three years before Amanda passed we spoke many times about leaving gifts in our Wills to Rowcroft, as we realised what this organisation does for the community. I am now proud to say I have updated my Will with a gift to Rowcroft, and I would encourage others to do the same. Gifts in Wills make such a difference for this charity and enable others to benefit from Rowcroft’s care, love and professionalism, just as we did.”

Leave a gift in your Will

Once your family has been cared for and debts and expenses paid, you may want to consider leaving a gift in your Will to Rowcroft.

No matter how big or small, a gift in your Will is a really special way to ensure that our care and support can be provided to more patients and their families for generations to come.

Our local supporting law firms offer their services all year round and will give you the right advice and support when it comes to sorting out your affairs.

If you wish to make or update your Will as part of Make a Will Week please get in touch with one of the local participating solicitors and mention Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week when booking your appointment.
