Let our care be your legacy

One of the most meaningful ways you can support us long into the future is to leave a gift in your Will. Even a small amount can make a HUGE difference. A legacy in your Will is a wonderful way to say 'thank you' and could enable us to make a significant difference to the lives of the patients and staff who use our services.

Making a will gives you peace of mind that your property, possessions, and money will go to the people and the organisations you care about. Nobody can control when the inevitable will happen but you can maintain control of what happens when it does. ELHT&Me is extremely grateful for all the support it gets through people's legacies and will endeavour to use the gift as you request.

Leave a life-giving legacy and get peace of mind with our expert, easy-to-use will-writing service. We have partnered with Octopus Legacy, an online Will writing service, to provide our supporters with an easy way to write or update their Will from the comfort of their own home.

Octopus Legacy is an online Wills provider chosen by ELHT&Me to help you write or update your Will online for free (T&Cs apply). 

This new approach to Will-making is quick and easy, but as secure as a face to face or telephone solicitor appointment. So we can offer our supporters this service, ELHT&Me pays a small fee to Octopus Legacy for each Will completed with a gift left to the charity. 

There’s no obligation to leave a gift to ELHT&Me in your Will, but we hope you may consider it once you have taken care of your loved ones. A gift of just 1% from your Will can make 100% difference for the future of East Lancashire hospitals NHS Trust with ELHT&Me.

How does the online service work?

  • You can write your Will online by using our partner Octopus Legacy. To begin, visit Octopus Legacy's website and follow the instructions. 

  • You can write a simple, single Will through this online service for free (T&Cs apply). 

  • Your online Will should take 15-30 minutes to complete and there is a helpline and online support available if your need further guidance. The form will walk you through each step, making sure your wishes are documented accurately. 

  • Once the process is complete, the system will generate your free Will. Then, all you have to do is download it and follow the instructions so that you can have it witnessed.

  • If you need any legal advice, you can ask Octopus Legacy to refer you to one of their solicitor firms. 

There is no obligation to leave a gift to ELHT&Me when using the Guardian Angel service, but, after taking care of your loved ones, we would be incredibly grateful if you would consider doing so.
