Weldmar Hospicecare launch 'Make A Will Month', offering a free Will writing service during October.
Weldmar Hospicecare has launched their first 'Make A Will Month', taking place this October, where local people can take advantage of a free Will writing service with a number of local solicitors.
It's estimated that just over half of all adults in the UK do not have a Will, which would ensure their money and property goes to the right people, and saves additional stress for the family at a difficult time.
Selected local branches of Kitson & Trotman, Blanchards Bailey, Porter Dodson, Humphries Kirk, and Battens will be offering the free service at appointments during October, with a suggested donation to Weldmar Hospicecare from anyone taking up the offer in return.
Sarah Balchin is Weldmar's Legacy Fundraiser, and says, "Having a Will is really important, and can provide peace of mind at the most difficult time. We are delighted that a number of local solicitors have come on board and we thank them for giving their time to this important campaign, so that we can encourage more people to write their Will".
Make A Will Month coincides with the launch of a campaign by the charity to get more people to consider leaving a gift in their Will to Weldmar Hospicecare. Gifts left in Wills directly contributes to the care of one in three patients in the last year of life.
With demand on services increasing by a predicted 25% over the next five years, leaving a gift in your Will now will ensure we are there for anyone who needs end of life care in the future.
