Fundraising for The Myton Hospices will receive a boost this month when local solicitors offer to write free Wills in return for donations.

Almost 20 law firms and Will writers will be supporting the hospice’s ‘Will Week’ from October 21 – 25, including Leamington solicitors Blythe Liggins, who have again named the hospice as their charity for the year and who last year raised £6,000 through various events.

Donna Bothamley, head of trust & probate at Blythe Liggins, said: “All the participating firms will be giving their time free of charge to write or update basic Wills for Myton supporters, in return for a donation to The Myton Hospices. Any sum is welcome, but suggested minimum donations are £80 for a single Will and £160 for a pair of mirror Wills.“A Will written by a solicitor is the best way to ensure that your family, friends and favourite charities will benefit exactly as you would wish”, said Mrs Bothamley, adding that two-thirds of people above the age of 50 didn’t have a proper updated Will.”

David Pratt, The Myton Hospices donor and supporter care manager, added: “There is no obligation to remember Myton in your Will but you might be interested to know that around one in four of our patients are cared for because people leave us a legacy.”

A list of participating firms is available on www.mytonhospice.org. Anyone wishing to make an appointment with Blythe Liggins for a Will to support Myton Hospice should contact Paul England on 01926 884765.
