Hospice urges locals to get behind annual Will Month

Hospice urges locals to get behind annual Will Month

by Tom Martin (April 2021)

Six solicitors from across Merseyside will be showing their support for St Joseph’s Hospice throughout May.

McClure Solicitors in Liverpool and Southport, Brown Turner Ross, DDE Law, Harvey Howell and Formby Law are all giving up their time freely during May and redirecting 100% of all donations to the Thornton hospice.

This is incredibly valuable to the hospice as every donation it receives will help it to provide hospice services free of charge to patients and their loved ones.

Having a Will ensures that you decide what happens to your personal possessions. Wills can also prevent disagreements about who inherits what from your estate. Plus, if you live with a partner, but you’re not married, you can ensure that they, and any children, are adequately provided for.

Wills also help with tax planning and help to avoid or reduce in heritance tax. They can also provide a way for you to continue helping charities and good causes that you support during your lifetime.

Maxine Armstrong, head of fundraising at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Our annual Will Month is incredibly valuable to the hospice as every donation we receive helps us to provide compassionate end of life care free of charge to our patients and comfort and support to their loved ones. It’s the perfect way of showing your support for the hospice and getting your affairs sorted at the same time.”
