Legacy Event

25 September 2020

Join us at The Shakespeare Hospice from 2.00pm to 4.00pm on Friday 25th September. We want to encourage our local community along to find out more about The Shakespeare Hospice, as well as thank our amazing supporters who may already be thinking about leaving a gift or have already done so! 

Representatives from local solicitors and accountants will talk about why having a Will is important and the tax benefits of leaving a gift in your Will.

Writing a Will is of benefit at any stage of life. If you get married, buy property or have a family, these changes directly affect your estate. A local solicitor and inheritance tax advisor will be providing impartial advice and help answer questions.

A gift in your Will to The Shakespeare Hospice will help us to continue to fund our services. We support over 1,000 adults, young people, families and carers from South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds who can access one or more of our specialised services when faced with life limiting illnesses. 

As places may be limited, please email fundraising@theshakespearehospice.org.uk or call 01789 266852 and speak to a fundraising team member.
