For the sixth consecutive year, McSherry Halliday is proudly supporting the Ayrshire Hospice in their ‘Make a Will Fortnight’ and, to date, we have raised over £18,000 for the campaign. Instead of paying our solicitor’s fee, clients are invited to make a donation to the Hospice. This year’s scheme runs from 17th until 31st October 2016 and if you are interested in participating, you can contact us direct between these dates to have a pack sent out to you. When enquiring, please quote “Ayrshire Hospice Make a Will Fortnight.”
Once you have completed the documentation which will be sent out to you, you are invited to book an appointment, which may or may not be within that fortnight depending on the solicitor’s schedule.
At your initial meeting, one of our solicitors will take your instructions. It should be noted that the offer is for a basic Will only. There may be an additional charge for a non-basic Will, where specialised advice may be required. If you are happy to proceed, we will invite you to make a donation to the Hospice (preferably by cheque made payable to The Ayrshire Hospice) instead of paying the solicitor their usual fee involved in writing your Will.
Supporting the work of the Hospice is so important to us, they provide outstanding care and services to help people with any life limiting illness at no cost to the patients or their families, but which improves the quality of each day for those people who have a limited time to live. It helps people to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives – however long that may be and wherever that may be. Two thirds of the Hospice’s income comes from voluntary donations including gifts in Wills. Knowing that these donations are hugely appreciated and will help people live well until they die, in comfort and in dignity, is gratifying.
