Sixteen local solicitors are giving up their time and waiving their fees between 22nd and 27th May to support St. Joseph’s Hospice.
During Will Week, individuals can write or update their existing Will and avoid solicitors’ fees by donating the approximate cost of a simple Will to St. Joseph’s Hospice instead.
Appointments can be booked by contacting any of the participating solicitors listed below.
St. Joseph’s Hospice is the oldest and largest hospice on Merseyside, providing specialist end of life care for over 200 patients every year. It is a registered charity and needs to raise £6,850 every day to keep its services running so the support of the local community is vital.
Solicitors participating in this year’s Will Week include: Kirwans in Liverpool, Southport and Prenton; Lees Solicitors in Birkenhead; Whitfields in Formby; Law4U in Anfield; Maxwell Hodge in Aintree, Maghull and Formby; McClure’s in Liverpool; Mooney & Everett in Ormskirk and Liverpool; Breens in Waterloo and Southport; and Brown Turner Ross in Liverpool and Southport.
Mike Parr, Chief Executive of St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Will Week has always been very well supported by our local solicitors and we are extremely grateful for their continued support. We are now asking local people to do the same by making an appointment to write their Will during our special Will Week.
“Only 30 percent of the population have a Will in place, yet it is so important that we all have one so that our children and any assets are taken care of according to our wishes.
“Many people don’t realise that any change in personal circumstances, such as marriage or divorce, can affect the validity of any existing Will so, even if you already have one, it’s really important to get it updated.”
