It’s easy to make excuses for not writing your Will.
That’s why we’re proud to be teaming up with local solicitors for this year’s Make a Will Month to help you formalise your wishes.
In March this year, for one month only, local solicitors Coles Miller and Laceys will help you write a simple Will and all they’re asking is for you to donate to us in return.
Suggested donations are £70 for a simple single Will and £120 for a simple joint Will. This is a huge saving of £130 on a simple single Will and £230 on a simple joint Will! For Wills requiring specialist advice or which are more complex, a fee can be agreed in advance with the solicitors.
How does it work?
- Make an appointment:
* Coles Miller – please call 01202 673011 between Monday 16 and Friday 20 March to book an appointment for your free Will writing appointment to take place between Monday 16 March and Friday 17 April. Please mention ‘Bournemouth Hospital Charity scheme’ when you book your appointment.
* Laceys Solicitors – Laceys Solicitors have now run out of free Will making appointments, so please book your appointment with Coles Miller, the details of which are above.
- Make a donation: Instead of paying the solicitors fee, you are invited to make a suggested donation of £70 for a simple single Will or £120 for a simple joint Will to Bournemouth Hospital Charity. You can make your donation by credit or debit card over the phone by calling the charity office on 01202 704060, online at www.bhcharity.org/donate/ (when you make your online donation please mention ‘Make a Will Month’ as the reason for your gift) or in person at the Charity Office in the main atrium of the hospital. Please remember that if you are a UK taxpayer to fill in or mention that you would like the charity to claim Gift Aid – this makes your donation worth an EXTRA 25% at no extra cost to you!
Places are limited so please attend your appointment – both firms have kindly waived their fee as part of our Make a Will Month, so if you can’t attend your appointment, please do let them know in advance.
Coles Miller Solicitors have five offices around Poole and Bournemouth, and Laceys Solicitors have three.
Your donations and gifts in Wills
Just over a third of our support is thanks to donations and gifts in Wills. Without these donations we would not be able to support the patients and staff at our hospital.
Your family’s security
Having a Will ensures that your family’s future is secure and that your wishes will be followed through. Our Make a Will Month is a good time to make or update your Will, especially if your marital status has changed, you have moved house, or recently had a baby.
