A lasting Legacy

Thanks to all the legacy donations received we have been able to achieve so much. From opening the New Cheyne Therapy Centre, improving the multi-sensory experiences in our Cedar garden through to a specially adapted minibus.

Find out about our latest legacies, and the impact they have had.

We are saddened to hear of the recent passing of Lady Janet Hill, a committed advocate of our work and a frequent visitor to Tadworth. Our thoughts are with her children, William, Peter and Sarah, and their families at this sad time.

L-R: Caroline Hill, Alex, a former rehab patient, Lady Hill, William Hill, Elaine Paige OBE, and our CEO Dalton Leong.

Lady Hill particularly enjoyed attending the annual Volunteers’ Summer Garden Party where she would meet some of the children, families, volunteers and staff. Volunteering had been a passion of her late husband Sir Brian too, who gave his time freely in his roles as President (2009 to 2017) and former Chairman of The Children’s Trust.

In 2018 the Sir Brian Hill Volunteer Recognition Award was established as a tribute to him. And it was Lady Hill who presented the inaugural award to Douglas Nurse from Banstead. Douglas – a volunteer of 19 years – generously maintained our beautiful grounds here at Tadworth.

Our grounds are where another legacy to Sir Brian lives on too. He was very fond of gardens and left a gift in his Will to help look after them. Our house and grounds are Grade II listed and this dedicated gift made it possible to restore our historic rose garden. Everyone on-site is enjoying the garden and for families going through difficult times, it is a quiet and tranquil place to relax and reflect.

Your support can live on too

With a gift in your Will, you can help our specialist work for children continue in the future.
And our partnership with The National Free Wills Network can help you write or change a simple Will for free.
