‘Where there’s a will appeal’
15 September - 31 October
Have you been putting off making a Will? This autumn could be the time for you to take action when Hospice at Home works with local Solicitors for our annual Will Aid Appeal. The participating Solicitors kindly give their time and expertise free of charge and supporters are asked to make a donation in lieu of their fee to Hospice at Home. Making a Will is incredibly easy and this is the ideal opportunity to make or update your Will.
Having an up-to-date Will is the only way to make sure the people you love are looked after when you are no longer here. Getting your affairs in order is important and the Will Aid Appeal provides an excellent opportunity to ensure that your wishes will be carried out when you die.
To take part in this vital Will Aid appeal please contact one of our participating Solicitors ASAP:
- Atkinson Ritson (Carlisle 01228 525221 or Wigton 016973 43241)
- Scott Duff and Co. (Carlisle 01228 531054)
Each Solicitor will advise of the time scale of when their support will take place.
The Charity kindly asks supporters to consider leaving a legacy to Hospice at Home, once family and friends have been provided for.
A gift in a will is an inspirational and incredible way to celebrate your passion for the county of Cumbria whilst ensuring no one should have to face a life limiting illness on their own. It will help to secure the future long-term sustainability and ensure our special Hospice at Home clinical care and support is available when needed.
Worrying times lies ahead. According to legacy analysts, legacy income could fall by 9% this year as a result of the pandemic and will affect the legacy market over the coming 5 years. With a fifth of hospice income in the UK raised via ‘Gifts in Wills’ the reliance of this funding is essential and if legacy gifts aren’t received this would have detrimental consequences as fundraising expectations aren’t met.
Sam Davis, Fundraiser for Hospice at Home said “We believe that no one should have to face a life limiting illness on their own. By leaving a lasting legacy gift in your will you will be enabling our nurses, carers and specialists to continue to provide care, comfort and support for patients, their families and carers in your local community.”
