Where there's a Will There's Way....to donate to your local hospice

Wednesday 14 February 2018

Make March the month to put your affairs in order and protect your family, by taking part in The Shakespeare Hospice’s Make a Will Month. For the whole month, local solicitors across South Warwickshire have kindly donated a number of appointments to help you make or update your will at a reduced cost.  

Instead of paying the solicitor for their expertise, your donation will instead come to The Shakespeare Hospice. The suggested minimum donations are: single will: £100, joint will: £150 and codicil: £75.

The Shakespeare Hospice provides exceptional palliative and supportive care to over 1000 patients and their families across South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds.  All the services at The Shakespeare Hospice are provided to our patients free of charge, but cost £2.3m each year to provide. This means that your donation will go directly to paying for the care of local people.

There is no obligation to include a gift in your will to The Shakespeare Hospice if you take part in this scheme.  However, by putting a gift in your will, you can make sure we will be there for the people you love if ever they need us.

Your donations or gift will be used wisely; for example, £100 will pay for two visits by Hospice at Home nurses to provide end of life care to patients in their own homes or one nurse on call overnight to support patients choosing to die at home.  Hospice at Home are a team of registered nurses and healthcare assistants with specialist training in palliative and end of life care. On call 24 hours a day, our team supports patients and their families in their home so they can remain with the people who are most dear to them. 

The Shakespeare Hospice would like to thank all the solicitors who have generously agreed to support this scheme.
