From 3 – 7 February 2020, local solicitors are giving their time, free of charge, to write wills in return for a donation to Weston Hospicecare.
Almost £20,000 was donated by supporters during the 2019 Make Your Will Week. These vital funds provided specialist end of life care to people in our community.
Individual Giving Manager, Carla Bloomfield said: “We are, as always, so grateful to the solicitors involved with Make Your Will Week, who are now taking bookings. There are limited appointments so please book directly with a participating solicitor as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. The suggested donation for a will is £120 and £200 for a pair of mirror wills which is considerably less than the normal charges for these services. Donations will provide care to a local family facing the most difficult of times.”
She added: “The hospice has been supported by charitable donations and gifts in wills for 30 years. In fact, Jackson-Barstow House was purchased because Sybil Jackson-Barstow left a gift in her will to the hospice.
There is no obligation to include Weston Hospicecare in your will but if you do it will mean that a local person can die with dignity in a place of their choosing. Your gift, big or small, will ensure everyone can make the most of the time they have left. It will also support those left behind with their grief.”
Weston Hospicecare’s Make Your Will Week 2020 is being supported by Bartlett Gooding & Weelen in Cheddar, Bennetts in Wrington, Berry Redmond Gordon & Penny in Worle and Winscombe, Holley & Steer in Burnham- on-Sea, John Hodge in W-s-M, Wedmore, Clevedon and Yatton, PowellsLaw in W-s-M, Star Legal in Clevedon and Wards in Weston-super-Mare, Worle and Clevedon.
Supporters are advised to contact participating solicitors directly by 17 January 2020.
