Will Writing Month

Demelza is taking bookings for its Will Writing Month in May 2019.

Throughout May 2019, local solicitors across Kent, South East London and East Sussex have kindly agreed to set aside a limited number of appointments ‘free of charge’ in exchange for a donation to the hospice, which will enable us to continue to care for our children with terminal conditions and their loved ones. All you need to do is contact the solicitor closest to you and arrange to go to their offices to have your Will written. Whilst suggested donation amounts are below, please consider the value of the time given by the solicitor.

Suggested donations are*:
Individuals Will: £150
Couples Will: £200

If you’re a parent, cohabiting, in a civil partnership or have dependents, then making a Will is essential to ensure the security of your family and loved ones.

Demelza’s Senior In-Memory and Legacy Fundraiser, Lisa Clark said: “Making a Will isn’t an easy thing to do but it really is something you shouldn’t put off. Getting your Will professionally written, means that you’ll have peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out”.

Laura (who is going to take part in the scheme this year) has said recently “Now that I have a young son, I feel it’s really important that I make my Will, so that I can be safe in the knowledge that my son will be cared for the way I would like him to be, should the unforeseen happen to me!”

*Please note, if your needs are more complex, your solicitor reserves the right to charge a commercial rate to reflect the work undertaken.

If you are interested in leaving a gift in your Will to Demelza, or would like to find out any further information about our Will Writing Month in 2019, please contact Lisa Clark on 01795 845275 or email lisa.clark@demelza.org.uk
