This September we are pleased to once again support St Raphael’s Hospice by offering our will-writing service during Make Your Will Fortnight (7th-20th September). Instead of our usual fee, we invite you to make a donation to this esteemed local organisation that provides invaluable end-of-life care and support within Merton and Sutton.
Locally run for over thirty years, St Raphael’s cares for over 1,000 patients and their families every year without charge, offering home-based and hospice care, wellbeing and bereavement support.
This year, as a result of coronavirus, the annual Make Your Will Fortnight has been moved to September from its usual spot in May. With their ten community shops closed for so many months, a major funding stream has been hard hit, and St Raphael’s income over the year is expected to be down by £1.5 million. The hospice costs over £6 million a year to run, so your help now is valued more than ever.
Do you have a will in place? Have you got married, divorced, had children or grandchildren? There are many reasons to make or update your will – we detail just some of them here. Importantly, without a will, your estate may not pass automatically to those whom you intend.
We will be offering our services from both our Wimbledon and Epsom offices, or via a video meeting if preferred. This is a wonderful opportunity to prepare or amend your will and gain peace of mind in aid of a great cause. Please contact our Private Client team to make your appointment on 020 8944 5290.
