Continued success for East Lancashire Hospice Will Week

elh-general-150x100Working with Solicitors across the region, the East Lancashire Hospice Will Week Scheme has raised almost £30,000 for the Hospice since it started 5 years ago.

Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors alone raised £1890.00 in the recent Will Week Scheme that invites people to put their finances in order and ensure their wishes are carried out by making a Will during the week that is held in October, when the cost of the Will is donated to the hospice instead of being paid to the solicitor during this time.

Stuart Maher, Director and Head of the Wills & Estate Planning team at Watson Ramsbottom said:

‘We are delighted to have again been involved with the Hospice’s Will Week, and are pleased that it has been such a success.

‘Many supporters of the Hospice who took part in the Will Week also took advantage of our Free Wills & Estate Planning report service at the same time. Uniquely at Watson Ramsbottom, we offer this service which identifies both your intentions and the outcomes you wish to achieve on your death and sets out the options available to you free of charge and without obligation.’

‘We are looking forward to being involved next year and hope that many more people can take advantage of the scheme In October 2015 to raise valuable funds for the Hospice.’

Watson RamsbottomEast Lancashire Hospice Fundraising Manager, Sharon Crymble said, “ Since its introduction, in addition to the scheme has been a great source of income that will go towards the funds needed to help us to care for our patients, it is also a reminder to make a Will, something that is on out to do lists but sometimes we need a nudge to get around to it. Once it is done we know that it also provides peace of mind.’

‘We could not offer this service or raise this terrific amount without our solicitors giving their precious time free of charge during the scheme and for this we are extremely grateful.”
