Where there’s a will, there’s a way to make money for East Lancashire Hospice! Five firms of solicitors have kindly agreed to waive their will-writing fee in exchange for donations to East Lancashire hospice, in support of the charities annual Will Week.

People without a will, or who need to make changes to their current one, can have the legal work carried out by making an appointment at any of the participating firms between 29 October and 2 November. Participating solicitors include:

Amanda Hall, Director of Houldsworth Solicitors, said “Writing a will is something people put to the back of their mind – but people don’t realise how much stress it can cause to their loved ones if you don’t have one. People don’t want to think about what may happen – but you never know what is around the corner.”

East Lancashire Hospice suggest a donation of £75 plus VAT for individuals and £150 plus VAT for a joint will, which can be passed to your solicitor in an envelope at your appointment. You only need to ring to make your appointment during this time, your appointment does not need to be within this week.

Sharon Crymble, Income Generation Lead at East Lancashire Hospice, said: “Will Week is a great way of prompting people who don’t have a will to take action. Having a will gives you peace of mind from knowing that your estate will go to the people you want it to, while helping to raise money to enable us to provide care for people with life-limiting illnesses.”
