Last month we took part in the annual St Catherine’s Hospice ‘Make a Will Fortnight’ for the sixth time. We are delighted to announce that we raised £1,040 for the much-needed charity.
During the fortnight, which ran from 14th to 25th of May, we wrote Wills for local people all of whom donated to St Catherine’s Hospice in exchange for our service. We are just one of many Sussex-based law firms who give our time free of charge to people who may not have access to a lawyer and who wish to make a Will, in return for a donation to the Crawley-based charity.
A married couple that we wrote a Will for said: “We are very grateful to Erica for the service that she provided. She clearly explained everything about our Will to us and answered all our questions. We recommend stevensdrake."
It’s important to ensure your Will is legally binding in order for your wishes to be carried out after your death, from who inherits your estate, to appointing a guardian for your children. With many pitfalls and errors that can be made, it’s worthwhile using the services of a lawyer and we’re pleased we could help so many people who donated to charity.
All the money raised by us and the other law firms goes towards helping everyone face death informed, supported and pain-free, as well as providing expert care for people in West Sussex and East Surrey either at St Catherine’s itself, or in a person’s own home.
Erica Pearce-Howard, of the Private Client team, said: “We are pleased we could raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice as the care they provide is great for people in the community.
