Will Week begins on 23rd May, when individuals can write or update their Will and avoid solicitors’ fees by donating to St. Joseph’s Hospice (Jospice) instead.
Thirteen local solicitors are giving up their time and waiving their fees between 23rd and 27th May by offering a standard Will-writing service in exchange for a donation to St. Joseph’s Hospice, approximate to the cost of a simple Will.
Appointments can be booked by contacting any of the participating solicitors listed below and on our website www.jospice.org.uk.
St. Joseph’s Hospice is the oldest and largest hospice on Merseyside, providing long-term, specialist end of life care for patients with a wide range of life-limiting conditions. The hospice needs to raise £6,500 every day to keep its services running.
Solicitors participating in Will Week include: Kirwans in Liverpool, Southport and Prenton; Lees Solicitors in Birkenhead; Whitfields in Formby; Law4U in Anfield; Maxwell Hodge in Aintree and Maghull; Morecrofts in Crosby; McClure’s in 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 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.”
