Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift to the hospice in your Will is not just a donation… it’s your continued 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.

A gift in your Will can keep a person as well as possible for as long as possible. No matter the size of your donation, it will certainly make a difference. As an independent local charity, we rely on gifts in Wills to be able to continue to provide our services both at the Hospice and within our community.

To make it easier for you, our dedicated Legacy team can offer you information and solicitors details. In addition, we hold our annual Make a Will Month, this year in October, where a local solicitor can write a basic Will, waiving their usual fee, in exchange for a donation to Dougie Mac.

Everyone knows someone who has received support from Dougie Mac – we are so lucky to have them locally. They support our local community and we need to support them by leaving a gift in our Wills to help them continue caring in the future.

Having a Will prepared gives you a sense of relief, everything is documented  and states exactly what you want to happen which means no disagreements with family members. It’s so easy to do too; the Will writing process is not at all time consuming and a friendly professional walks through everything with you.” – Make A Will Month Participant

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.
