Will writing month

LOROS has teamed up with local solicitors to offer a free Will writing service to the general public during November.

FREE WILL WRITING MONTH

LOROS’ Free Will Writing Month makes it easy for supporters to make a Will and support the Hospice

Throughout November, local solicitors generously donating their time and expertise by offering to write a simple Will in exchange for a donation to LOROS. It is also a great opportunity to consider leaving a gift to LOROS in your Will.

Laura Betts, Fundraising Manager, said: "It is important to make a Will to ensure that your money and possessions are distributed according to your wishes."

"Leaving a gift in your Will is also a brilliant way of supporting the causes you care about. It costs you nothing today, but your gift will help to secure the future of your chosen charity. Every year, LOROS must raise £6 million and gifts and Wills make up a large part of this. Decisions made by people making their Will have helped to ensure that we can continue to provide vital services to terminally ill people.

"Please consider leaving a gift to LOROS in your Will. Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a real difference to our patients, their families and carers."

What type of Will does this cover?

The scheme covers the writing of a simple Will or a Codicil.  If you have more complicated instructions or you require inheritance tax advice, usual rates may be charged for additional work.  Will writers will advise you of the fees involved in advance.

Who is eligible?

This service is open to everyone! There are no age restrictions and while charitable legacies are very welcome, there is no requirement to make such a bequest.  There is no requirement for an individual or a couple to leave a legacy (gift) in their new Will to LOROS. However, we kindly ask you to consider making a ‘future donation’, as gifts in Wills are vital, if the hospice is to continue delivering the services it currently offers.
