Legacy and Bequests

NHS Staff

Leaving a gift in your Will is a generous way to make a lifelong donation to a charity you care about. Of course, ensuring you loved ones are cared for comes first, but leaving a charitable bequest in your Will can advance care for patients in Cornwall for generations to come.

We would always recommend that you gain quotes from solicitors if you are unsure of the costs of producing a Will and the cost can depend on how complicated your affairs and wishes are. A solicitor will ensure all legal procedures are followed and answer any questions you may have.

If you make the decision to leave a gift to Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity, please find below the details that you will need to provide to your chosen solicitor.

  • Registered Charity Name: Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity
  • Registered Charity Number: 1049687

Charity Address:

Specific Fund Details: If you would like your gift to benefit a specific fund, please ask if you are unsure of a Fund Name and Number to provide to your solicitor.
