Legacies and in memorial gifts are a vital source of our income. Leaving us a gift in your will and making a donation in lieu of flowers, or to mark the anniversary or birthday of a lost loved one, is a wonderful way to support the work we do.

Hollybank is so much more than just a safe place to live and learn. We provide people with opportunities to learn new skills, enjoy pastimes and hobbies with friends and live as independently as possible, despite their complex medical needs. We help people to live rich and fulfilling lives - your legacies and donations in lieu of flowers enable us to do this.

Your generous gift could help with the following:

  • £50 - could pay for a riding lesson for one of our children
  • £100 - could provide a hydrotherapy for babies with limited mobility
  • £500 - could help us buy equipment for an adult who wants to communicate with his friends
  • £1000 - could enable us to adapt household appliances so that our adults can make themselves a cup of tea, or turn the TV over

Larger gifts could support our building programmes or fund repairs, adaptations and developments to our school and residential homes.

A gift in your will, or a donation in memory of a lost loved one, really will help us to continue to give quality of life, for life to the very special babies, children, young people and adults in our care.

Making a will

Making a will is something that many of us avoid doing, but the process is really quite simple - and not as expensive as you'd think. It can even be done at home, though we would always recommend asking a solicitor to look it over, to make sure it accurately represents your wishes.

In memorial gift

Some families choose to limit funeral flowers to immediate family and encourage others to make a donation to a chosen charity in their loved one's name instead. We feel privileged to accept donations in memory of your loved ones and work with many funeral directors to handle the administration of such gifts for you. If you would like to discuss this very special way of supporting Hollybank, please get in touch.
