Making a will is important. And so is regularly updating it. At Wards Solicitors we believe it’s important to remind people of this which is why staff across all our offices take part in regular Write a Will charity fundraising events. Solicitors like us give up their usual will writing fees to prepare basic wills for people who need one. These people in turn make a donation to the charity.
In October 2015 Wards Solicitors took part in St Peter’s Hospice Will Fortnight and thanks to the generosity of individuals, we can now report that the campaign raised an amazing £21,456 for the charity – a total which far exceeded any previous campaign.
About St Peter’s Hospice

They provide physical, psychological and spiritual care for their patients in their own homes as well as at the Hospice. They also teach other healthcare professionals about how to care for people at the end of their lives.
Last year alone St Peter’s Hospice provided palliative care to over 2,000 patients and bereavement and grief support to over 6,000 family members, including children.
