Meet Dawn

"I always knew it was an option to leave a gift to a charity, but it wasn't something I had included in my original Will. Since volunteering at St Oswald's, I've heard of people leaving gifts in their Wills and seeing the huge benefits this has to the hospice I wanted to do the same, and leave my own gift."

Meet Gordon

“St Oswald’s really is a special place, I left a gift in my Will because I wanted to give something back. They really looked after us, and they still look after me now, I am so grateful for the lasting friendship. I come back sometimes to see Lorna’s name and light a candle in the chapel and just take a moment. It’s a really special place.”
