Make a Will Month

John Taylor Hospice has partnered with two local solicitors to offer people a discounted will writing service this March.

During Wills Month people can make or update a single will for £60 and a double will for £110 – with half the fee being donated to John Taylor Hospice.

Hospice Head of Fundraising Katie Mitchell said: “Making a will gives you peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be followed after you have died. Our discounted Wills Month service will help you to control your legacy and ensure that your loved ones will be taken care of.

“After making sure those close to you will be provided for, you can choose to leave a gift in your will to John Taylor Hospice. There is no obligation to do this but we would, of course, be incredibly grateful if you chose to remember our charity in your will.

“Gifts kindly left in wills are so important as they help us to provide care and support for hundreds of local families every day. Legacies also help to ensure our services are available for generations of families to come.”

Dawn Smith, who has motor neurone disease, attends the hospice’s Living Well Centre, taking part in activities and learning techniques to manage her symptoms.

“I enjoy coming to the hospice,” says Dawn, aged 54 of Shard End. “I feel normal – no illness is ever mentioned, and the staff are wonderful.”

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.”
