Poole Hospital Charity’s first Will Week
Poole Hospital Charity has teamed up with Coles Miller Solicitors LLP to encourage families to make a will and consider their estate planning.
Coles Miller Solicitors are offering 100 people the opportunity to make a “free will” during Will Week, 19-23 February, in return for a donation to the charity.
A standard single will would normally cost £150 and £250+VAT for a joint mirror wills. Suggested donations of £50 for a single and £75 for a joint will are invited as part of the event. Donations can be made by cheque or BACS to Poole Hospital Charity.
The offer is open to the first 100 people to book an appointment during Will Week. Contact the Coles Miller Wills and Probate department on 01202 673011 to make your appointment, quoting ‘Poole Hospital.’
Making a will is hugely important if you care what happens to your dependants, money and your belongings after you die. Whatever the size of your estate, you should always leave a clear and legally binding statement of your wishes. Making a will is the only way of guaranteeing that your wishes are respected and is likely to be one of the most important documents that you will ever sign. It is recommended that you speak with a solicitor to ensure you receive the best advice about your estate planning.
Last year Poole Hospital Charity used vital gifts and legacies to fund items including bladder scanners and radiotherapy equipment for patients with cancer.
Farah Batchelor, fundraising manager, said: “It’s easy to put off making a will, but if you have dependants or assets it’s about time to make sure your wishes are fulfilled after you pass away.
We are always grateful to receive a gift in a will as the charity can turn the donation into a lasting legacy for future generations.
We’re hoping this year’s Will Week really motivates people to get their appointment booked and have peace of mind.”
