Hospice holds Wills Month

John Taylor Hospice is launching a free will writing service and offering reduced price wills as part of its annual legacies month.

The hospice has partnered with national and local solicitors to encourage people to make their wishes known during its Wills Month in September.

John Taylor has recently joined forces with McClure Solicitors to provide free wills and a free will review service – a partnership which will continue beyond September.

Yardley-based Robert Shaw and Co and Baches of West Bromwich are also offering reduced price wills to support the hospice.

Head of Fundraising Katie Mitchell said: “Making a will ensures your wishes are followed after you die. It means you are deciding how your assets will be divided and ensuring your loved ones are provided for. And yet nearly two-thirds of adults have not yet made their wills.

“By partnering these solicitors we are providing people with the opportunity to discuss and make their wills with professional solicitors for reduced costs and even for free.”

What our patients think

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
