From October 14th to November 14th, Blackpool residents will be able to update or create their Will through some generous, local solicitors, who will be waiving their fee – it’s usually more than £100 for a single Will.
Instead, individuals are encouraged to make a donation to Trinity Hospice. This means lower costs for creating a Will, as well as making a difference to the lives of many people on the Fylde coast.
Wills Month also provides participants the chance to think about leaving a gift in their Will for their chosen charity.
Legacy fundraiser, Devon Park, said: “Will Month is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to think about their future and organise their assets.
“We know that making a Will can be a daunting and often expensive process, which is why we’re ecstatic that so many local solicitors are providing their time for free and encouraging residents to donate a suggested amount to the hospice.”
Longstanding Trinity Hospice volunteer and Will Month participant, Tracy Dewhurst, said: “I’m getting involved in Will Month because I think it’s really important to make a Will to ensure that you leave your belongings to the people you really want to give them to.
“When I’ve made a Will in the past, it was for my dad, during a really stressful time, in the late stages of his terminal illness. It was the last thing either of us wanted to do at such a stressful time, so would encourage others to think about it now when there is more time.”
Appointments are being taken now. To find out which solicitors are taking part, visit our Will Month web page or contact Devon Park at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call them on 01253 959363 for more information.
