Where there’s a Will there’s a Way – St Elizabeth Hospice Celebrates Successful Wills Month
A small gathering was recently held at St Elizabeth Hospice to thank the solicitors who took part in ‘Wills Month’ in May this year.
Wills Month is an annual campaign that encourages those who have not made a will to visit one of the participating solicitors – who give their time free of charge in return for a donation the hospice. This year those donations came to an amazing £16,272 for which the hospice is very appreciative.
Lynn Maskell, Legacy officer for St Elizabeth Hospice, commented: “St Elizabeth would like to thank all of the solicitors who took part and gave their time free of charge to support Wills Month. Having a will written in this way does not obligate the person making to the will to gift anything to the hospice but this campaign does bring to mind how important gifts in wills are to the hospice. One in five of our patients’ care is paid for in this way and any amount, or asset donation really does help.”
The solicitors who took part in Wills Month for St Elizabeth Hospice were:-
- Bates Wells & Braithwaite
- Barker Gotelee
- Fairweather Law
- Goodwin Cowley
- Marshall Hatchick
- Michael Smith & Co
- Ross Coates
- Watkins Stewart & Ross
