All gifts in Wills are looked after by Liz Edmondson, our Relationship Manager at the Hospice. Liz Edmondson, Relationship Manager and Tracey Scott, our Director of Finance are the only people authorised to give a proper receipt and discharge to executors.
You can send a cheque payable to ‘St John’s Hospice’ to:
Wills and Legacies, St John’s Hospice, Slyne Road, Lancaster, LA2 6ST
Or if you want to make a payment by an alternative method, please email [email protected]
We understand this process can be complicated, and a little daunting if you haven’t done it before. Please make sure you include the information below:
- The full name and title of the deceased
- Their last address
- The date of death
- The Executor’s name and contact details
- Any information about the reason for the legacy
It is also good practice for an Executor to notify beneficiaries as soon as possible. For charities, this also means that they can update their records to ensure that future mailings are not sent out to the deceased. We know that such mail can be distressing.
