We have teamed up with local solicitors to offer people the opportunity to have their Wills written professionally while raising funds for their local hospital.
Our 'Make a Will Week' is taking appointments during the week 8 - 12 October and anyone can take part. People can include a legacy to York Teaching Hospital Charity as well as making a donation at the time.
Maggie Bulman, Trust and Corporate Fundraiser for York Teaching Hospital Charity said "This is a really important iniative for our charity as legacies are a significant and valued source of income. Leaving something to charity, whether the sum is small or large, is a wonderful legacy to leave in your Will. Donations help to fund the extras to improve our healthcare facilities above and beyond the NHS budget, helping patients in so many different ways from brightening up waiting rooms to providing an essential piece of equipment. We are extremely grateful to all of the solicitors who are doing this."
Melanie Pickering, Solicitor at Roche Legal, taking part for the first time commented "Making a Will is one of the most important things you will do. At Roche Legal we are passionate about charity work, because it allows us to give something back to the community. The York Teaching Hospital Charity is a cause close to our hearts, and the hearts of many of our clients. We are therefore proud to be joining them this year for their Will Writing Week, to help raise both awareness and funds for teh charity that we know cares for our hospitals."
Ramsdens Burn and Co Solicitors are also taking part this year. Solicitor Claire Trueman added "We are also very proud to support York Teaching Hospital Charity by taking part in the Make a Will Week this October."
