Weldmar launches free will-writing service

Weldmar launches free will-writing service

Published by The Wessex FM News Team at 6:44am 20th August 2019.

It's part of their 'Make A Will Month' this October.

It's estimated that just over half of all adults in the UK do not have a will.

The charity has teamed up with local solicitors to offer the service.

Why do I need a will?

  • to ensure your money and property goes to the right people
  • can save additional stress for your family at an already difficult time

Selected local branches of the following solicitors are offering the service at appointments during October:

  • Kitson & Trotman
  • Blanchards Bailey
  • Porter Dodson
  • Humphries Kirk
  • Battens 

They've suggested making a donation to Weldmar Hospicecare from anyone taking up the offer in return for the service.

Sarah Balchin is Weldmar's legacy fundraiser. She said:

 "Having a will is really important, and can provide peace of mind at the most difficult time.  We are delighted that a number of local solicitors have come on board and we thank them for giving their time to this important campaign, so that we can encourage more people to write their will".
