Our Will Week is an annual campaign, this year it runs from March 11th to 15th, which sees dozens of kind-hearted solicitors giving their time for free to help people make their Will. Instead of charging their usual fee, supporters can make a donation to St Ann’s.
Margaret Poole, a volunteer at St Ann’s Hospice, updated her Will during the campaign last year.
I’d been putting off changing my Will, like most people it just wasn’t something I wanted to think about. I had already made one, but after some changes in my family circumstances, I needed to update it. Seeing the leaflets for the St Ann’s Will Week prompted me to take part – it allowed me to make the changes I needed whilst supporting St Ann’s with a donation. I saw a solicitor who was local to me, they were really good and it was an easy process. To anyone who hasn’t made or recently updated their Will, I’d say you’ve got to think about these things. It’s not for you, it’s for those who you leave behind so you don’t leave them in a mess. It’s easy to let years go by, but it really is something everyone needs to think about. Margaret Poole
