Make A Will Fortnight 2021
St Wilfrid’s Hospice’s invaluable Make A Will Fortnight scheme returns 4-15 October, encouraging local people to make or amend their will in return for a charitable donation.
Chief Executive for St Wilfrid’s Hospice Alison Moorey said, “You’ve made a life you love, now make a Will to show you care. One in every four of our patients are cared for thanks to gift in Wills so they are a powerful way to do something enduring for your community”.
Participating local solicitors generously donate their time, and instead of charging a fee, they ask clients to consider making a donation to the Hospice.
Appointments are now available from 13 firms across the county, and must be secured in advance with early booking advised.
Chichester solicitors George Ide LLP have participated in the scheme for many years. Ursula Watt from the firm said, “The Make a Will Fortnight is an excellent opportunity to support the invaluable work St Wilfrid’s Hospice provides whilst gaining the benefit of a professionally drafted Will from a local firm with years of experience.”
The Hospice suggests a typical minimum donation of £100 for a Codicil, £150 for an individual Will, or £250 for Mirror Wills (designed for couples). Should the Will require any specialist advice, clients will be quoted a fee for the necessary extra work, before going ahead.
