Getting in touch 

Please let us know if you are an executor of a Will where Princess Alice Hospice has been included. It would be helpful if you could let us have the following information for all gifts: 

  • The full name and address of the person who has made a gift in their Will.
  • Their date of death.

We will require some additional information, depending upon the type of gift –  

Pecuniary Gift  

  • A copy of the Will (or the clause that mentions our gift). 

Residuary Gift  

  • A full copy of the Will. 
  • A schedule of estate assets and liabilities once this is available. 
  • Copies of probate valuations for any property in the estate. 
  • Estate accounts at the end of the administration, and the opportunity to raise queries. 

Our legacy administrator, Kate Wilson, is happy to try and answer any questions you may have. However, it is important to point out that Princess Alice Hospice is unable to give any specific legal advice, and we would encourage you to contact a Solicitor or a Will writer.

Staff holding up thank you sign

We want to say a very special thank you to all our supporters who have remembered us in their Will. Gifts in Wills are vital to Princess Alice Hospice as they enable us to provide continuing care, advice, support, and comfort to local people. Gifts in Wills fund over a third of our care. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to care for one in three of the people we currently help. 

If you would like to learn more about the difference gifts in Wills make to Princess Alice Hospice, please get in touch. We host annual thank you events where you can meet those who make our care a reality and offer personalised tours of the hospice here in Esher throughout the year. We understand not everyone wants to join us in person and will be guided by you on how much or how little you’d like to hear from us. But please, rest assured any gift left to Princess Alice Hospice will help ensure we are here today, tomorrow and always.
