The difference your gift makes

A gift in a Will could help a local family ​​​in the future

David Coles

David first got involved with Rennie Grove after his wife Anne was cared for when she was diagnosed with a terminal ​illness. After finding out more about becoming a volunteer it didn’t take long before David became an ambassador for Rennie Grove, working across the charity’s fundraising and family support teams. 

"Even at two o’clock in the morning, I could pick up the phone and speak with a nurse and they would visit us if needed. It gave me peace of mind and made a fantastic difference. I hope my gift ​makes a real difference to future generations and enable the nurses to continue to do their wonderful work."

Katharine Hersee

Katharine has been involved with Rennie Grove ​in recent years since her father was supported in the final stages of his illness. Having seen how the Rennie Grove nurses ​helped to enable her father to die at home and make the situation much less frightening, Katharine has been sharing her immense gardening knowledge and writing skills to help support our trust fundraising and many vital projects.

“At every stage the nurses from Rennie Grove were available for our father and for us, telling us what might come next and the knock on the door when the nurses arrived was always a huge relief. It’s an incredible gift that they give in the last days of someone’s life and I hope other people will benefit from my gift.”

Emma Saunders

Rennie Grove came into Emma’s life ten years ago. Emma was just 17 and right in the middle of her A-Levels when her dad, Ian, died from bowel cancer. Our nurses cared for Ian at home for 18 months, until he passed away, aged 58. Having experienced first-hand the difference that the Rennie Grove nurses made and how this gave the family back some control in a tragic situation, prompted Emma to write a Will and to include Rennie Grove as a beneficiary.

“One thing it taught me losing my dad so young was that circumstances can change really quickly. I would encourage ​you to leave a gift in ​your Will to Rennie Grove because it means another young person like me can receive the same level of comfort and care if a big loss is sprung upon them.”

Sue and Jim Hobley

More than 40 years ago, Sue Hobley lost her only nephew to a rare cancer. It spurred her on to become a trustee and now supporter who generously offers her time to transform the garden at Grove House with a volunteer team of gardeners.  Sue's husband Jim, volunteers for drive patients to and from Grove House. Now, ​they have left a gift in ​their Wills to Rennie Grove to ensure local families will continue to receive the specialist care they need.

“I have been privileged to see the amazing care given by staff and the difference it makes to patients. These services require ongoing funding. Knowing this, it was important for us to make a gift in our Wills for the future of Rennie Grove.”
