Make Your Will Fortnight

7th – 20th May 2019

If you have been thinking about writing a Will and would like to support your local hospice whilst doing so, you’ve come to the right place.

A number of local solicitors have very kindly agreed to give up their time for free to write or change a standard Will for you. In return, they ask that you make a donation to support the work of the Hospice.

There is no set amount that you are required to give. However, each solicitor works independently and while many will leave it up to you to decide how much you would be comfortable giving, others may set a minimum donation. Please discuss this with your chosen solicitor.

To take advantage of Make Your Will Fortnight, simply register your interest by contacting our Supporter Care Team below.

We will send you a list of this year’s participating solicitors. You will need to contact your preferred one directly to make an appointment. They will help you throughout the process and will pass on all donations to us in a secure envelope. You can give using cash, card or cheque (made payable to St Raphael’s Hospice).

If your will is not “Standard” (i.e. involves tax or other specialised legal advice) the solicitor will advise you beforehand and agree a fee with you before going ahead.

There is no obligation to include the Hospice in your will, but if you do choose to leave a gift, be it large or small, it would be very much appreciated. Last year, the legacies we received ensured that we were able to deliver all our vital end of life care for 2 ½ months.

So don’t put it off any longer. Ensure that your loved ones are cared for when you are no longer here by writing or updating a Will this May.
