Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass are proud to announce their sup­port for East Cheshire Hos­pice by rais­ing £1640.00

Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass sup­port­ed the char­i­ty through the fifth 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 from 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 reg­is­tered char­i­ty, all their ser­vices are com­plete­ly free. How­ev­er, the Hos­pice has to fundraise over 80% of its run­ning costs from gov­ern­ment sim­ply to main­tain the cur­rent pro­vi­sion, which is almost £7,000 every sin­gle day of the year. Gifts from Wills, also known as lega­cies or bequests, pro­vide the fund­ing for up to 1 in 3 patients.

Paul Clark 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 fifth 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 Hospice’s Lega­cy & Trusts Man­ag­er, Fiona Beasley, said: Many peo­ple put off writ­ing a Will again and again. We’re delight­ed that the sup­port of local Solic­i­tors like Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass waiv­ing their fee to do this work has meant that many local peo­ple have put their affairs in order and had a valid Will drawn up. Since it began Will Week has raised over £50,000 in donations.”

The next East Cheshire Hos­pice Will Week takes place from 5 – 9 Octo­ber. For more infor­ma­tion about the East Cheshire Hos­pice & Will Week, vis­it www​.eastcheshire​hos​pice​.org​.uk/​w​i​l​lweek or con­tact 01625 666991.
