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 our charity, you’re supporting the future of children like Talia. She was born with a number of serious medical conditions. She needs 24/7 care and Alexander’s Care Team gives her family the vital support they need to cope with every day life.

“Alexander Devine stepped in and made such an unforgettable impact on our lives. We count our blessings for the continuous support they give us. They’ve enabled us to watch Talia enjoy a new, safe and exciting environment at their hospice, given us respite from her medical demands and most importantly backed us as a family through every step of our journey”

Gemma, Talia’s mum
