Make a Will Month October

Living Magazines Make a Will Month

The Hospice of St Francis has teamed up with a host of local solicitors this October as part of Make a Will Month, during which participating solicitors will waive their fees for writing a Will in lieu of a donation to the Hospice.

Peter, who took part in the scheme last year, shared his thoughts, ‘I was delighted to be able to show support for The Hospice of St Francis by making use of the Will writing scheme last September. It was very easy, especially having the opportunity to talk to a solicitor who showed such empathy, just a few weeks after my wonderful wife of 51 years Linda had died of cancer.

‘Make a Will Month represented just one more opportunity for me to show appreciation of what St Francis gave to her in so many ways (and to me) at the end of her amazing life. I’m so grateful. The Will writing scheme was so helpful and timely at just the moment that I needed a new Will, and just when things were so difficult.’

Jacqueline Almond, from IBB Law in Chesham adds, ‘It’s important to make a Will for peace of mind. You know that you have done the right thing and your loved ones have the comfort of knowing what your wishes are.’

The minimum donation, which will make a huge difference to the care of local people affected by life-limiting illness, is £140 for a basic Will or £200 for a pair of basic mirror Wills. Typically the cost of Will writing is much higher than these donation amounts.
