Leaving a Gift In Your Will

Remembering Nottingham Hospitals Charity with a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to say ‘thank you’ for the care that you, or a loved one, have received. What’s more, a gift to the Ward, Department or Research Area that is closest to your heart will continue to enhance the amazing care that takes place in our hospitals every day.

Gifts in Wills fund one third of our work every year.

From cancer research projects, to services for patients with Cystic Fibrosis, to end of life care at Hayward House, they enhance diagnosis, treatments and outcomes and are a vital means of support.

We know that your loved ones come first.

But after you’ve taken care of your family and friends, a gift to our hospitals – even just 1% of what’s left – will make the world of difference to our work.

Make a Will Month

Your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever make, but it doesn’t need to be daunting or complicated. Instead, it will ensure peace of mind and security, not just to you but also to those you love.

To make it even easier, we have launched our first Make a Will Month. Throughout November, participating local solicitors will waive their fee to have your Will written or updated, in return for you making a suggested minimum donation of £90 for a single Will, or £140 for a joint Will to Nottingham Hospitals Charity – to support any area of the hospitals of your choosing.

All you need to do is contact us on 0115 962 7905 or email Ellis Keay at We will process your donation and pass on your details to the solicitor of your choosing, who will then be in contact to schedule your free appointment.

You don’t have to remember Nottingham Hospitals Charity in your Will. However, a gift to us, no matter how large or small, is a wonderful way to continue supporting the cause you care so deeply about.

Q: I already have a Will and just want to make an amendment – can I still do this during Make a Will month?

A: Yes, just contact a participating solicitor and inform them that you have a Will written and would like to add a codicil.

It’s a good idea to update your Will from time to time as your circumstances or your wishes may change.

Q: Are there an unlimited number of Wills available?

A: There are only a limited number of free Wills offered during Make a Will Month and these are written on a first come, first served basis. In order to ensure that you are able to benefit from the campaign, we recommend contacting a solicitor as early as possible.

If you miss out on a free Will on this occasion, you can still make use of Nelsons online discount, or call Ellis Keay 0115 962 7905 to find out more about other options available to you.

Q: What if my Will is complicated?

A: During Make a Will Month, solicitor’s fees are waived for simple Wills. If your Will is deemed to be complex, for example if it involves tax affairs or specialist legal advice, a fee may be charged for the additional work. Your solicitor will always make this clear to you in advance.

If you’re unsure about your Will, please do contact one of our solicitors for further advice.

Q: Do I have to tell you if I leave a gift to Nottingham Hospitals Charity?

A: You don’t have to tell us if you decide to leave a gift to us, and your solicitor will not disclose any details of your Will. However, if you would like to let us know about a gift in your Will, you can use the contact form available to download from this page or call us on 0115 962 7905. We would love to have the chance to say ‘thank you’ for your incredible kindness.
