Legacy Month - What will be your Legacy?

What Will be your Legacy?

This October Tarporley War Memorial Hospital is launching “Legacy Month.” To promote this initiative we invite you to write down a statement of what legacy you would like to leave behind. While we cannot live forever, we can create something that will. Whether that “something” that you leave is physical or psychological, the key is identifying what it is, in order to live a more purposeful life.

If you choose to leave a gift in your Will to a charity like Tarporley War Memorial Hospital, you can leave this as:

  • a fixed amount of money, known as a ‘pecuniary legacy’
  • an item
  • a share of what’s left of your estate once all costs and other legacies are paid out, known as a ‘residuary legacy’.

Your charitable donation will either:

  • be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated
  • reduce your Inheritance Tax rate, if more than 10% of your estate is left to charity

As your will is a legally binding document, and the subject of charitable legacies can be complex, it’s sensible to seek professional help when making a legacy in your will.

Tarporley War Memorial Hospital are pleased to announce that a number of excellent professionals have agreed to offer free will drafting throughout October, to anyone leaving a legacy or donation in their Will to the hospital. By leaving a gift to the hospital, you are helping to secure its services for your children, grandchildren and the whole community.

Alternately, professionals can write a standard will at a reduced rate, for a donation to the hospital of £100 per person or £150 for a couple, presented to the professional of your choice below. If you take the first steps, our partners can help you bridge the gap for the generations to come.
