Leave a Legacy

Your Legacy a Precious Gift – Make a Difference

Could you help DougieMac by remembering us in your Will and leave the precious gift of comfort and support?

Making your Will is an important way to remember the friends, family and causes you care about after your death.  A donation in your Will to the Dougie Mac costs you nothing during your lifetime but can offer comfort, care and support to local patients and families.  No matter how big or small, a Gift in your Will can keep a person as well as possible for as long as possible.  As an independent local charity we rely on Gifts in Wills to be able to continue to provide these services both at the Hospice and within our community.  To make it easier for you we hold our annual Make a Will Month in May where a local solicitor writes you a basic Will and waives their usual fee.

However large or small your donation, it will certainly make a difference. To find out more about leaving a Gift in your Will or to receive a free Will making pack please contact our legacy team at, call 01782 344308.

Who has left us a Gift in their Will?

Michael Harper, from Trentham tells us why he has left a gift in his Will to the hospice……

“My wife Jackie was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010. She spent the final 6 weeks of her life being cared for by the DougieMac Hospice at Home team before passing away. I’ve taken part in the Will Month campaign last May. It’s a very good scheme – everybody should make a Will if you possibly can and I would urge you to remember the DougieMac. They are a fantastic local charity who care for so many local people who are facing a life limiting illness like my Jackie. Your legacy will help ensure that the care that was shown to my wife at the DougieMac can be continued for many years to come.”

Making your Will

Writing a Will doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.  It can provide you with peace of mind to know that following your death your family & loved ones will be looked after and your wishes are followed.   

To assist you we have attached further details below of a List of Solicitors who support the DougieMac plus a Will making pack for you to download.

Make a Will Month

To make it even easier for you to get started with planning for your future every May we hold “Make a Will Month”.   During May a team of local solicitors will Make your Will and waive their normal fee.  For further information on Make A Will Month email or call 01782 344308.
