Harlow solicitors support St Clare Make a Will Fortnight
Charity / Thu 31st Mar 2016 pm31 01:13pm
From June 6 to 17, eighteen solicitors and will writers’ offices across West Essex and East Herts, the catchment area of the Hospice, have kindly volunteered their time to enable you to make your Will. Many of the solicitors are located in the Harlow area, including Barnes & Partners and Attwaters Jameson Hill, so you are certain to find a participating solicitor near you.
Making a Will is something which local family, Sarah and Alex Lenihan from Bishop’s Stortford, always meant to do. After 15 years together and lots of milestones celebrated, their busy lives meant that they never quite got round to it.
But when little Eva came into their lives in February 2016, they knew making a Will was a priority. Sarah said: “There is no question that making a Will is the right thing to do for our family. Life is so precious and we realise that more than ever now that we have our baby Eva.”
On the importance of making a Will, the Law Society states: “Everyone should have a Will, but it is even more important if you have children, you own property or have savings, investments, insurance policies or you own a business.”
From June 6 to 17, seven solicitors’ offices local to Harlow are volunteering their time to enable you to make your Will. All they request is that you kindly make the suggested minimum donation of £180 to St Clare Hospice, which is the standard cost of a Will, but will pay for an hour of the vital care that St Clare’s Community Service offers free of charge to local families.
