Some people decide to leave a legacy to their local NHS Charity. A legacy in your Will could enable us to make a significant difference to the lives of the patients and staff who use our services.
Charitable Funds is always delighted and grateful to receive legacies and we are more than willing to spend your money as you would like it spent. However, it is helpful if people do not specify too precisely what the money should be used for. This is because the type of equipment used, the names of wards, units and services or even the treatment provided can change which would cause problems in spending your legacy when we receive it and may even mean that we cannot put it to the good use you intended it for at all.
A suggested wording for legacies is:
I give and bequeath the sum of £……../ I leave the reside of my estate to Lincolnshire Community Health Services Charitable Funds (registered number 1055217), or its successors, for the benefit of the Trust generally, without imposing trust, but with the wish that it is to be used to the benefit of (for example) …….ward, ……. Service, …. Department.
There are 2 types of legacies:
A bequest to a charity enables you to make a planned gift to a charity you care about, whilst ensuring your loved ones are provided for. Charitable legacies are paid before tax is deducted, reducing the amount of inheritance tax due form your estate.
