Working with local solicitors to support care this April

Herriot Hospice Homecare is working with solicitors as part of a will-making initiative to support local hospice care this April. 

 

The charity's Make a Will Month sees local, participating solicitors waive their legal fees so those making or amending a will can make a donation to support the charity instead.

 

The initiative is open to anyone aged 18 and over and provides an opportunity for people to make a basic or mirror will with a participating solicitor of their choice – which usually costs between £200 and £350. Appointments, which take place in April, are limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.

 

Herriot Hospice Homecare’s Make a Will Month also gives people the opportunity to leave a gift in their will to Herriot – supporting the charity’s care both now and in the years to come. One in five patients is cared for thanks to a gift left in a will.

 

Herriot Hospice Homecare provides care and support to families living with terminal illness and bereavement across its community in Hambleton and Richmondshire.

Chief Executive Tony Collins said: “We’re delighted to be working with solicitors across our community and offer people across Hambleton and Richmondshire an opportunity to protect the people and things they care about at key stages in their lives – whether that be becoming grandparents, having children or moving house.

 

“Participating solicitors will waive their legal fees, meaning you can make a donation to support local hospice instead.

 

“One in five of our patients is cared for thanks to a gift left in a will, and any gift, however big or small, will support care for those living with terminal illness and bereavement now, and in the years to come.

 

“We are incredibly grateful to solicitors across our district for waiving their legal fees to support Herriot Hospice Homecare – without the generosity of our community, we wouldn’t be able to provide the majority of the care and support we do.”
