A Will might be the most important document you ever write, so why are you putting it off?

St Luke’s Hospice has once again teamed up with local solicitors to hold our annual Will Week from 8th – 12th October.

During this Week, members of public can get their Will written by one of the participating solicitors for free, in return for making a donation to St Luke’s.

Andy Bailey, Corporate Partnerships Manager at St Luke’s, said: “Whatever your age or health, having an up-to-date Will is incredibly important. It will ensure that your estate and belongings are distributed according to your wishes, and you can also specify more personal preferences such as arrangements for your children or details for your funeral.

“The whole process to make a Will typically takes less than an hour – it’s all really straightforward and time well spent.

“By taking part in Will Week, you can ensure you and your family’s future is secured whilst making a valuable contribution to St Luke’s. Please don’t put if off.”

During Will Week, Hall Smith Whittingham Solicitors in Crewe and Nantwich, Hibberts Solicitors in Crewe and Nantwich, Poole Alcock Solicitors in Crewe, Butcher & Barlow Solicitors in Sandbach and Northwich, Dixon Rigby Keogh Solicitors in Sandbach, Northwich and Winsford, and Mosshaselhurst Solicitors in Northwich and Winsford are kindly donating their time and expertise to support the charity. In return for a donation to the Hospice, they will waive their usual fees. The suggested donation for your Will is £100 and this will come straight to St Luke’s.

Gemma Ambrose from Hibberts Solicitors said: “Will Week is a great opportunity for those who haven’t made a Will to take advantage of the offer and support the great work of a local charity. We always have a fantastic response to this campaign and are delighted to be involved again.”

Verity McKay, a Solicitor with Poole Alcock, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to support St Luke’s in this way for another year, last year the teams involved were able to raise £420 for St Luke’s – and we’re sure to be able to raise even more this year.”

Samuel Dale, a Partner at Butcher & Barlow Solicitors, said: “It is a privilege to take part in St Luke’s Will Week again this year. The scheme has been hugely popular in previous years and we at Butcher & Barlow are glad to do our part to raise money for such an invaluable local charity which has helped many families during extremely difficult times.”

Emma Sezer from Mosshaselhurst added: “Wills are vital to ensure people have planned the distribution of their estates properly. Mosshaselhurst is proud to support the St. Luke’s Make a Will Week campaign again this year and the crucial work it does within the community.”
