KEMP Hospice's annual Make a Will Week returns next month, with Wyre Forest solicitors once again lending their time to support the popular scheme.

The Make a Will Week takes place this year between Monday, May 20 and Friday, May 24, providing people in Wyre Forest with support and expert advice to make or amend their wills in exchange for a charitable donation.

Head of fundraising at the hospice, Cathy Sloan, said: "We understand the incredible importance of preparing for the future of our loved ones, ensuring that it is them who benefit after our death.

"Making your will is a very important part of your financial planning, yet incredibly only one in three people die without having made this essential provision.

"Make A Will Week is very popular and we regularly take calls from people throughout the year asking when it will be taking place.

"It’s such an important thing for people to do and I urge as many people to take up this fantastic opportunity."

This year, mfg Solicitors LLP, Norris and Miles Solicitors, Painters Solicitors, Talbots Law, Thursfields Solicitors, Westons Wills and Probate and Wright Solicitors will all be supporting the campaign.

All of the firms will not charge for writing a simple will, joint or mirror will, or a standard codicil, and instead invite customers to make a suggested donation to KEMP.

Cathy added: "We are so grateful to all the solicitors taking part once again this year, their support is phenomenal. They are giving their time, free of charge, to update or write a will and in return all we ask those who take part is to make a donation to KEMP Hospice.

"Only a limited number of appointments are available, so everyone is encouraged to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

"Anyone wanting to take part should contact any of the firms participating and mention KEMP Hospice Make a Will Week and the appointment must take place during the week May 20 to 24.

"The money raised helps us to continue caring for local people in the Wyre Forest who are dealing with the challenge of life limiting illness, or loss, and allow us to provide much needed support to their loved ones free of charge.”
