A Last Will and Testament is your way of telling everyone what should happen to your money, possessions and property after you pass away. If you don't leave a Will, the law decides how your estate is passed on which might not be in line with your wishes.
So unless you want the law to decide who will receive your estate, whether it be a £500 or £500,000 legacy, Auntie Ivy’s pearls or your precious family photograph album, you should consider making a Will today. After all, who knows what tomorrow may bring.
Dr Kershaw’s Will Month makes creating your Will so much easier thanks to the professional guidance of local solicitors who are giving you the opportunity to access their expertise and Will writing services free of charge.
Throughout November 2021 selected local solicitors are offering to help you write your Will, giving their expertise completely free of charge, asking instead that you make a difference by making a donation towards patient care. With a suggested donation to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice of £75 for a Single Will, £100 for a Mirror Will and £50 for a Codicil, your Will will help look after your loved ones at the same time as helping towards the care of someone else’s family.
Dr Kershaw’s Will Month is your opportunity to set out your wishes which could include making sure your loved ones are provided for financially; protecting your partner if you are unmarried or even set out who will look after your children or even your pets.
From September 2021 you can make an appointment in advance with participating solicitors for November 2021. If you would like us to send you a reminder when appointments are available, please let us know by completing the form below and we’ll contact you via email.
During Dr Kershaw’s Will Month there is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice however, once your loved ones are provided for you may wish to leave a gift to a cause that means something to you, so that your generosity can live on after you.
Leaving a legacy towards patient care at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice will make a difference. Speak to your chosen solicitor about how you can leave a legacy to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.
By gifting just 1% of your estate to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice, you will be helping to provide compassionate and dignified hospice care for your family and your friends’ families in years to come. Thank you.
