How to leave a gift in your Will to St Barnabas

Wills are an important way of making sure your wishes are known, and that the things you have worked hard for during your life will go to the people and causes that you hold dear.

If you die without a Will, you may be leaving your loved one with considerable legal fees and paperwork. You will not be able to determine whether the things you have worked hard for during your life will go to the people and causes that you hold dear.

We are able to help you with this, to make it as simple as possible.

Supporting over 12,000 people every year across Lincolnshire

Types of gifts available...

Residuary Gift

A residuary gift, or 'share of your estate', is the percentage of your estate that you choose to leave to a beneficiary. It will not devalue over time.

Pecuniary Gift

A pecuniary gift, or 'cash gift' , is an exact sum of money. Inflation may devalue the amount over time, so you might like to ask your solicitor about linking it to the Retail Price Index, to ensure it maintains its value.
