Ways to give

Leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a legacy or gift in your Will to Chestnut Tree House will help us continue to provide vital care for children with life limiting illnesses.

Thank you for considering leaving us a gift in your Will, all amounts – big and small – are greatly appreciated. Donations from Wills covers care costs of 1 in every 4 children we support.

Frequently asked questions

It costs over £4.6 million every year to fund our care, and we receive very little from central government. This means we rely on your generosity to keep our facilities open and continue to support local children in our community.

When making your Will, make sure your solicitor knows that you’d like to leave an amount to us. Your solicitor will need to provide the following information in your Will:

  • Our legal name: St Barnabas Hospices (Sussex) Ltd – Chestnut Tree House
  • Our legal address: Titnore Lane, Worthing, BN12 6NZ
  • Charity number: 256789

We ensure that all gifts go to the ongoing running of the hospice. Your generous donation will go towards the service we provide, including:

  • Specialist short breaks, emergency and end of life care, 24 hours a day
  • Support for the entire family following diagnosis through the whole disease journey
  • Bereavement support, befriending, counselling and spiritual care

Gifts in Wills come in all sizes but whatever the amount, each gift allows us to make a real difference to the lives of the people we care for.

We understand that if you decide to leave a gift in your Will, it’s a private matter, so please don’t feel you have to tell us. However, if you do wish to let us know, we will do everything we can to show you how much your support means to us by inviting you to special events and helping you understand the difference your support makes.

To let us know your intentions, or if you have any other questions, please call us on: 01903 70635 or email wills@chestnut-tree-house.org.uk 

It was a lovely feeling when I signed my Will and left the solicitors office knowing that I didn’t have to worry about my estate. I was content that I can continue to help give these special children the best life I can
