Our vision is for Anglican clergy to be physically and mentally healthy and able to serve their parish and community to their full potential.
Why we need legacy gifts
A legacy gift from you will provide much-needed care for the physical and psychological wellbeing of the clergy. With your generosity, we could increase the number of people we support and expand our range of facilities.
We have been involved in caring for the Anglican clergy for over 100 years and the support the clergy and their families receive from us has significantly improved their lives and ministries.
It is difficult to emphasise strongly enough how helpful he [Consultant Neurologist] has been, together with his referrals to specialist clinics within the hospital. I now have the confidence to think that, with all this help, I will be able to maintain my mobility & independence.”

How to leave a legacy gift
There are different kinds of gifts you can leave in your will:
- A residuary legacy gift is a share of your estate that is left after all other shares and gifts have been provided for
- A pecuniary legacy gift is a specific amount of money given to the charity
Once you have decided how much you would like to leave for your family and friends and the amount you wish to leave for St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy, we advise you get a solicitor to draw up or amend your will.
For an existing will
If you have an existing will but you wish to leave a legacy gift to St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy, you can simply amend the will by adding a codicil.
The wording in your will
All you need to do is provide your solicitor with the name and the charity number of St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy and they will do the rest.
Name: St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy
Registered charity number: 1123195
If you wish to include St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy in your will, we suggest the following wording
“I give to St. Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy (Registered Charity No. 1123195)*
[Simply insert one of the following]
*…all the residue of my estate
*…one half/third etc. share of the residue of my estate
*…the sum of £…
…and I declare that the receipt of the Chief Executive or other authorised officer for the time being of the Charity shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors.”
