Leave a gift in your will

We know that family and loved ones come first when you are making financial plans and we also know that for many people, helping others is a consideration when making their will.

We appreciate each and every gift we receive and use it to help as many people as we can.

Making sure your will is valid and up-to-date is the safest way to ensure that your wishes are carried out – we advise you to take independent advice from a solicitor and review your will regularly to make sure it is relevant. There is advice on the Law Society (https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/for-the-public/common-legal-issues/making-a-will/) website on what to consider when making your will.

 What a wonderful legacy it is to leave a gift for the James Paget University Hospital Charity – a gift that really does keep on giving in the community that you love. And leaving a will to a registered charity is currently exempt from Inheritance Tax and Income Tax.

Your special gift helps the James Paget University Hospital carry on the work it does to help the people you know and love. Anything you leave will help us make a real difference to how we support patients in the future.

The types of gifts you may choose are:

A specific gift for charitable purposes

“I give the sum of £.. to the James Paget University Charitable Fund (registered charity number 1050406), Finance Department, Lowestoft Road, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. NR31 6LA, the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the James Paget University Charitable Fund shall be a complete discharge to my executors.”

Gift of residuary estate for charitable purposes:

Gift of residuary estate for charitable purposes: 

“I give (%) of the residue of my real and personal estate which I can dispose of by will in any manner I think proper to the James Paget University Charitable Fund (registered charity number 1050406), Finance Department, Lowestoft Road, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. NR31 6LA, the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the James Paget University Charitable Fund shall be a complete discharge to my executors.”

Giving to a particular specialism:

If you would like to give to a particular specialism – such as cardiology, maternity or dementia care – or give to a particular ward at the James Paget University Hospital, or create a named fund or perpetual gift, please contact Maxine Taylor to discuss the options that best suit your individual preference

Regular giving can help provide ongoing support for a ward, clinic or area of research which is close to your heart – you can make a single or regular gift online here (LINK).

Donations can also be made by post with cheques made payable to "JPUH NHS Foundation Trust" and sent to the Finance Department, James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Lowestoft Road, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR31 6LA.

Please ask friends and family to include your loved one’s name and if you would like your gift to go to a particular ward or area please either write this on the rear of the cheque or in an accompanying letter.

Donations in lieu of flowers

When families plan a funeral for their loved one, some prefer to limit the flowers at the service to those given by immediate family and instead invite others to give a lasting tribute in the form of a donation to a chosen charity.

We would be privileged to accept donations in their memory. Collecting donations instead of flowers at a funeral can help the James Paget University Hospital to continue to offer care to ​patients and pay for the items that NHS money doesn’t cover.

Funeral directors are willing to collect donations in lieu of flowers, handling the administration of these gifts for you and then forwarding them on to us. Many funeral directors ​also now offer an online service and will set up a tribute for you, so that donations can be made via credit or debit card. They will provide an online link for you to share.

Alternatively, you might like to give friends and family a link to our website for them to make a donation directly to us online. They can do this by going to Donate

 If you’d prefer to speak to a member of our charity team about donations, contact Maxine Taylor on 01493 453348 or email [email protected]

Your support means that we can help more people, save more lives, develop new treatments, build state-of-the-art facilities and support our incredible patients, their families and our wonderful staff. Thank you.

Wording for funeral notices

When writing a notice for a newspaper or online announcement or for a funeral’s order of service, many people would like to ask for donations in memory of their loved one to go to a specific ward or charitable fund.

To ensure cheques are written correctly, please use the format of words below to indicate which hospital fund you would like donations in memory to go to.

Please send to Martin Hazell, Finance Department, James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Lowestoft Road, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. NR31 6LA.

Don’t forget Gift Aid – if you are a UK tax payer, you can increase your gift by 25 per cent at no extra cost to you – see our gift aid page for full criteria.

Gifts in Kind

It’s not just monetary donations that can help the James Paget University Hospital Charity - your time, products or services could support our fundraising efforts as well.

There are a number of ways in which you could support us:

* Providing volunteers to help at fundraising events provides great opportunities for fun and team building – and all to raise funds for a very good cause.

* Support for people taking part in fundraising events – such as T-shirts or refreshments – is also much appreciated and can raise the profile of your product or company.

* Donations of prizes for a raffle or auction are always welcome and can raise a significant amount of money for the Charity.

* Hosting an event to introduce the Charity to new and potential supporters can be invaluable and help to nurture new partnerships.

* If you have any ideas on how your company might be able to get involved with the Charity, please contact charity co-ordinator Maxine Taylor on 01493 453348 or email [email protected]
