With April marking Dr Kershaw’s Will Month, Dr Kershaw’s Chief Executive, Joanne Sloan, spoke of her positive experience when she signed up a Will during the last Will Month at the end of last year.

Joanne said: “I’ve wanted to get a Will for many years but have never got round to it, Will Month gave me the opportunity to finally do it whilst also supporting the Hospice. Making a Will during Will Month was so easy, my husband and I made an appointment with the solicitor, it took just half an hour and then we went back to sign on another day which only took 10 minutes. It’s done now and ticked off our list so we can forget about it. I’d definitely recommend signing up to a Will during Will Month, it doesn’t take long and it puts your mind at rest, whilst also providing vital funds for your local Hospice.”

Making a Will with one of the Hospice’s supporting solicitors is free, however, to support patient care there is a suggested minimum donation of £75 for a single Will, £100 for a Mirror Will, and £50 for a Codicil. The solicitors taking part in the scheme are waiving their fees for simple Wills, however if there is a more complex requirement there may be an additional fee.
