  • Make a Will Month

Ensure that your loved ones are taken care of in your Will, and help the Hospice at the same time by making a new Will or updating your Will during our Make a Will Month, to be held in Autumn 2019.

Local solicitors will waive their fee in lieu of a donation*, which will help the Hospice support more local people to live their precious lives well.

If you have any questions please contact Shannon Butler - shannon.butler@stfrancis.org.uk / 01442 869555
