Make a Will Week 14 - 18 May 2018
Make or update your Will during Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week and support your local hospice to make every day the best day possible for over 2,000 patients and families in South Devon.
Each May, for one week only, local participating solicitors waive their entire fee for making or updating Wills in return for a donation to the hospice. The suggested donations are £175 for a single Will and £225 for mirror Wills. For Wills requiring specialist advice, a fee can be agreed in advance.
Making a Will ensures that your family’s future is secure and that your wishes will be followed through. Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week is a good time to make or update your Will, especially if your marital status has changed, you have moved house, or recently had a baby.
By taking part in Make a Will Week you’ll also be helping families in South Devon who are living with life-limiting illnesses to make the most of every moment they have together. Last year Make a Will Week raised a phenomenal £41,370!!
If you wish to make or update your Will as part of Make a Will Week please get in touch with one of the local participating solicitors, whose details can be found on the ‘Make a Will Week Solicitors List’ tab to the left. Please mention Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week when booking your appointment.
Your Donation and Gifts
75% of Rowcroft’s care is provided thanks to donations and gifts in Wills. The donation you’ll make to Rowcroft by making or updating your Will during Make a Will Week will help to fund support in patients’ homes, the community and at the hospice’s Inpatient Unit in Torquay.
Once your family has been cared for and debts and expenses paid, you may also want to consider leaving a gift in your Will to Rowcroft. No matter how big or small, a gift in your Will is a really special way to ensure that our care and support can be provided to more patients and their families for generations to come.
There are various ways you can remember Rowcroft in your Will
A Residuary Gift - Leave part of your estate to Rowcroft e.g. 1% of the residue of your estate
Pecuniary Gift - A fixed gift of money e.g. £1,000
A Specific Gift - Leave something specific to the hospice, anything from clothing, furniture or a piece of jewellery
