Make a Will

Get organised now and put your affairs in order for your own peace of mind!  Providing for your family on a day to day basis comes as second nature.  So why do we put off thinking about making provision for them before we die? Making a will means confronting a subject nobody wants to think about.  Putting pen to paper, writing down what you’d like to happen after your death, always seems to be at the bottom of a ‘To Do’ list.  But making a will and letting your family and friends know your wishes is vital and is easier than you may think.  Putting things in order can be a weight off your mind and make things clearer and simpler for your family to honour your wishes. This May, Springhill Hospice is teaming up with a selection of local Rochdale solicitors who are offering to guide you through the process to writing your will.  There is no fee for this service, we simply ask you to make a suggested donation back to Springhill Hospice of : £100 for a Single Will £160 for a Mirror Will £50 for a Codicil Every penny comes directly to Springhill Hospice.  This donation will be going directly to patient care at the Hospice.  This is an ideal opportunity to get expert help in putting pen to paper to make provision for loved ones in the future. How to take part: 1. Choose your solicitor branch from the list below.  2. Contact your chosen solicitor directly to book your appointment (first come first serve).  3. Write your will with your solicitor, they will waive their own fee and you make a donation back to Springhill Hospice for their services.  Solicitors taking part in Springhill Hospice’s 2022 Will Campaign are as follows: (Please note: our will writing campaign primarily focuses on simple wills, if you require specialist advice or requirements, this may come at an additional charge with your chosen solicitor branch.)
