Solicitors back Make a Will month for Bluebell Wood

1st February 2018

Been meaning to make a Will but not yet got round to it? You can have your Will expertly written for free this February, in return for a suggested donation to Bluebell Wood.

Dawson & Burgess, Taylor Bracewell and HSR Law in Doncaster, HLW Keeble Hawson and Graysons Solicitors in Sheffield, Buchanan & Co in Kiveton Park and Staveley, Spencers Solicitors in Chesterfield, Wilford Smith in Rotherham, Tierney & Co in Dinnington and Peace Legal in Barnsley are the ten firms of solicitors taking part in Make a Will Month 2018 for Bluebell Wood. By making a Will this February, you can not only make sure your property and money goes to your loved ones, but also help make a difference to the children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions that Bluebell Wood cares for. Moving house, getting married or divorced, or starting a family are all good reasons to write or update your Will. A basic Will can include funeral wishes, appointing guardians for children and simple bequests, including any gifts to charity. Lauren Smith at Taylor Bracewell Solicitors said: -Bluebell Wood is a fantastic charity that we have always been keen to support. My visit to the hospice a few years ago reiterated how important their services are and how lost people would be without them. We are so lucky to have these facilities close by, yet at the same time we hope that we will never need them. Making a Will and leaving a small legacy to Bluebell Wood can make a massive difference. Patricia Bint at Graysons Solicitors said: -As a local business, Graysons is proud to support Bluebell Wood this year by taking part in its Make a Will Month. We believe that Bluebell Wood is an invaluable source of support for many families, and it is the only such facility in the region. As only 10% of the hospice's £4 million running cost is funded by government, we appreciate the huge effort the hospice makes to find the rest of the finance. We are pleased to be doing our bit. Julie Booth, Trust and Legacy Fundraiser, Bluebell Wood, said: -Making a will is one of the most important things any of us ever do. It makes sure that our money and possessions goes to the people we want, and can save a lot of stress and time for our loved ones in the future. -Doing this with one of our supporting solicitors during Make a Will Month will help us to continue supporting families when they most need us. Every donation will help our families to make special memories, whether they have days, weeks or years left together.
