Lichfield and Burntwood residents urged to make a will to support hospice

St-Giles-Hospice---Make-A-Will-WeekLichfield and Burntwood residents are being given the chance to make a will – and support local people living with cancer and other serious illnesses.

By making an appointment with one of St Giles Hospice’s fifteen participating solicitors during Make a Will Week (October 5-9) people can receive a standard will in return for a donation to the charity.

Helen Relihan, Head of Fundraising for St Giles, explained:

“With 15 local solicitors across the region generously waiving their fees for the week, this is the ideal opportunity for people to make a will and ensure their loved ones are looked after according to their wishes. We invite everyone to make a standard will in return for a donation to St Giles Hospice.

“While it is entirely up to the individual how much they choose to donate, an average standard will ranges from £75 to £100 so we hope people would consider donating at least £50.”

All the money raised will go towards funding St Giles’ caring services.

St Giles Hospice is a registered charity offering high-quality medical and nursing care for people with cancer and other serious illnesses, as well as providing support for their families and carers.

Care is offered at the hospice’s facilities in Sutton Coldfield and Whittington near Lichfield, or in patients’ own homes across the region.

St Giles spends £6 million every year providing its specialist services and with less than a third of this funded by the Government, relies heavily on donations and fundraising.
