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.

Why leave a gift to charity in my Will?

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. It costs over £4 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.

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
