“Many people put off writing a Will again and again.  We’re delighted that with the support of local Solicitors like Jackson Barrett & Gass waiving their fee to do this work many local people now have a valid Will drawn up and are enjoying the added peace of mind.  Since it began, Will Week has raised over £84,000 in donations.”

Karyn Johnston, Director

Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass are proud to announce their sup­port for East Cheshire Hos­pice by rais­ing £825.00.

Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass sup­port­ed the char­i­ty through the sev­enth annu­al East Cheshire Hos­pice Will Week. The Wilm­slow Solic­i­tors offered their time with­out charg­ing their fee to write stan­dard Wills. Any­one hav­ing their Will writ­ten dur­ing this week was giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a dona­tion to the Hospice.

East Cheshire Hos­pice pro­vides very spe­cial care for adults suf­fer­ing from life-lim­it­ing ill­ness­es for which there is no cure. They care for the whole per­son, putting patients, their fam­i­lies and car­ers at the cen­tre of every­thing they do.

As a local reg­is­tered char­i­ty, all their ser­vices are com­plete­ly free. How­ev­er, the Hos­pice must fundraise over 80% of its run­ning costs from the com­mu­ni­ty it serves sim­ply to main­tain the cur­rent pro­vi­sion, which is almost £7,500 every sin­gle day of the year. Gifts from Wills, also known as lega­cies or bequests, pro­vide an essen­tial part of this funding.

Rick Bar­row of Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass said When the Hos­pice orig­i­nal­ly asked if we would like to get involved and sup­port this ini­tia­tive by writ­ing some Wills free of charge, we thought it was a great idea.

Now in its sev­enth year, we have seen the pos­i­tive impact it has had in rais­ing aware­ness about the Hos­pice, and the impor­tance of Wills as well as some much need­ed funds.”

The next East Cheshire Hos­pice Will Week takes place between 2nd & 6th Octo­ber 2017
