Hive Bradford is a registered charity and relies on a fantastic team of volunteers and a host of generous donors.

As a charity we exist to offer creative opportunities for personal and social development to all, regardless of their situation or circumstances.

We do this through a variety of means, including bursaries and reduced fee places on our courses, supported drop-ins and other supported access schemes.

Gift in your Will

Many people choose to leave a gift to a charity that they care about, such as Hive, in their Will. Every legacy received by Hive – no matter how large or small – is a lasting gift that will support our organisation.  By remembering us in your will you will be ensuring that our work can continue for the people of Shipley, Bradford and beyond.

Once you have considered the needs of friends and family, you may want to consider leaving a one-off gift or a share of your estate to Hive to ensure that the facility lives on for future generations.

Some people also choose to give us gifts in memory of a loved one.

If you would like to support Hive, we would recommend talking to a solicitor or legal adviser to ensure that your wishes are met. You will need the following information:

  • Charity name: Hive
  • Address:  Hive, Shipley, Bradford, BD18 3EH
  • Registered Charity Number: 1100741

All legacies and gifts will be treated in strict confidence, but if you are able to let us know that you are considering leaving us a gift we are able to plan ahead. It also means we will have a chance to thank you.

To a small charity like Hive, one single legacy can make the most enormous difference to our work. The sum doesn’t have to be big to have a big impact.

We know that legacies are a very personal subject. If you would like to find out more about supporting Hive in this way, please contact Joy.
