Make a Will to make a difference to your local hospice

Letchworth-based Garden House Hospice Care has once again teamed up with local solicitors for its “Make a Will Week” campaign. From 20th to 24th March participating solicitors will waiver their usual fees so that supporters can get a basic Will for a donation instead. The campaign raised over £8,000 in 2015.

It’s great value for money and couldn’t be simpler to get involved. All you need to do is book an appointment with one of the participating solicitors and donate a suggested minimum amount of £100 for a basic Will or £150 for pair of basic Mirror Wills.

More complex Wills need to be discussed on a case by case basis with the solicitor and may incur an additional charge. Updates to existing Wills are also possible.

Katy Terry, Development Manager at the hospice said “Thanks to all the participating solicitors for giving people this fantastic opportunity to get an affordable, professional Will written whilst supporting local patients and families who are facing a life-limiting illness. There are limited appointments though so please book now”.

"I encourage everyone if they haven't got a Will to contact a participating Solicitor for the Garden House Hospice Care 'Make a Will Week'. Leaving a Will ensures there is no doubt that your final wishes are in place. This campaign is kindly supported by local solicitors giving up their time in aid of Garden House Hospice Care for a very reasonable suggested donation. So please if you need to make a Will or need to make an adjustment to a current Will, call to make an appointment now. All donation proceeds support an amazing charity caring for our local community".
