Make a will to make a difference for hospice

Have your say

Make a will and make a difference for St Luke’s this April.

Almost 50 per cent of people mistakenly believe their estate will pass to their partner when they die, but that isn’t necessarily the case.

And that’s why 10 Sheffield law firms are taking part in April’s St Luke’s Will Month, encouraging people across the city to make a will and support Sheffield’s only hospice at the same time.

Participating solicitors will draw up a will for a suggested minimum donation of £85 for a single will or £125 for a joint will, with all money raised during the month going direct to the charity.

The participating companies include Bell & Buxton, Best Solicitors, Coates Solicitors, hlw Keeble Hawson, Irwin Mitchell, Norrie Waite and Slater, Rosalind Watchorn Solicitors, Taylor and Emmet, PM Law and Slater & Gordon Lawyers.

“All money raised by Will Month comes directly to St Luke’s,” said hospice head of fundraising Kathryn Burkitt.

“Not only will a will mean increased peace of mind, it will also help us to continue to provide free specialist care to Sheffield people who have incurable illnesses.”
