A gift in your Will could change the life of a child

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your Will to Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service. Through Alexander’s legacy, together we can continue to provide our specialist care and lifeline support for generations to come.

The power to make difference

We understand that when writing your Will your loved ones must come first. But not only could your Will help secure your family’s future, it could also help ensure the future of Alexander’s legacy – our much-needed children’s hospice service. That’s why we are pleased to be able to offer a free Will writing service with Beyond. 

Every gift can make a positive difference to the lives of the children and families we support. Big or small, it is what these gifts achieve together that makes them so incredible. 

Make Alexander’s legacy your own 

Alexander Devine was an extraordinary and brave boy who sadly passed away at the age of 8 from a rare brain tumour.

He left an incredible legacy in our much-needed children’s hospice service and has changed so many lives. It is because of Alexander that our charity today provides lifeline support to more than 130 children and their families, across Berkshire and the surrounding counties. 

By leaving a gift in your Will you can be part of Alexander’s incredible legacy. You have the power to change a child’s life and ensure that we can continue to be there for generations to come.

How will my gift make a difference?

When you leave a gift in your Will to Alexander Devine, you’re supporting the future of children like Stanley and his brother Riley. They were born with a rare genetic condition that means they cannot sit, talk, walk or swallow and require 24-hour care and support.

“The support we get helps us give the boys every opportunity we can to do things that normal, healthy children their age would do. Who knows what the future holds but the amazing support from Alexander’s Care Team is so valuable in helping me make the most of the time we have with them.”

Shailza, Riley and Stanley’s mum

26 incredible volunteers 💪
460 🎄 trees collected
...and over £8,500 raised! 🙌

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone that generously supported our Christmas Tree Recycling service this year. In particular, our amazing team of volunteers who braved the wet and cold weather to collect trees from people's homes and take them to be recycled.

All the trees were taken to Berkshire College of Agriculture for recycling into chippings and are already being used with their zoo animals on site.

As well as being good for the environment, we also love that our recycling service enables us to support other local charities. As part of our service, which is run in partnership with JustHelping, we are able to nominate a local charity to receive 10% of our donations. We are delighted to choose 18th Maidenhead Scouts, who are always incredibly supportive of our charity.

What a wonderful way to kick-start 2022! 💙💛
