- Donate by standing order
Please consider making a regular gift to the Trust's charities by signing up to a standing order.
Regular giving is one of the most effective ways to show your support and commitment. Even a small sum, for instance as little as £3 a month, really does make a difference to the way that the Trust can support the charitable work carried out at our hospitals.
By making a regular gift you will help us to plan for the future and to ensure that we can improve the quality of care for our patients.
- Gift Aid
If you are a UK taxpayer, under the Government's Gift Scheme we can claim an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue for every £1 you donate. This means that your donation can increase in value by nearly a quarter at no extra cost to you.
It's really simple to do - just complete the form and include it with your donation. The form can be downloaded here
- Legacies and Bequests
A gift in a will is a valued way of donating to our charity. The gift is an investment in the future, and we are very fortunate to be remembered by so many people each year. Legacies bestowed on Three Wishes Charity mean we can take on new developments or services that would otherwise not have been possible.
If you wish to leave a gift to charity in your will we recommend you consult a solicitor who can advise on wording to ensure that your wishes are carried out exactly as you want them to be and for it to be documented which fund within Three Wishes Charity the legacy should go to.
If you or a member of your family would like to discuss further, please email ThreeWishesCharity@WWL.nhs.uk.
