Wills month returns for St Elizabeth Hospice

Throughout May, you can make or amend your will at local solicitors for a discounted cost in return for a suggested donation to St Elizabeth Hospice.

The local charity’s Wills Month coincides with Dying Matters Awareness Week, which runs from 8-14 May. The theme for 2017 is asking the question: ‘What can you do?’ and one key thing you can do to prepare for the future is to make a will; ensuring that the people and charities you care about are looked after in the future.

Pauline Donkin, Individual Giving Manager at St Elizabeth Hospice said: “We are hugely grateful to the local solicitors and will writers offering their time free of charge to support the hospice. “Last year our Wills Month was highly popular and raised more than £11,000, which equates to almost 600 nursing hours and means we can provide vital care for our patients and their families at a time when they need us most.”

The suggested donations for each of these are as follows: for a single will £115, a mirror or double will £150 and a codicil £50. If you would like to make your will in return for a donation to St Elizabeth Hospice, please choose from the list of local solicitors and will writers who have signed up to take part, and contact them to book an appointment between 1-31 May 2016.

Please book early to avoid disappointment. The solicitor taking part in Felixstowe is Fairstep Solicitors, 174-176 Hamilton Roadm Felixstowe, IP11 7DU.
