Dorset’s largest law firm Lester Aldridge, in partnership with the charity Macmillan Caring Locally, is offering people the chance to make or update their Will for free throughout February 2023.
Macmillan Caring Locally is a small, community charity that is not connected to the national charity Macmillan Cancer Support. Almost 70% of the charity’s funding comes from gifts in Wills, enabling them to continue delivering end-of-life care for patients and their families.
Writing a Will ensures you decide what happens to your money, property and personal belongings after you are gone and that your loved ones are taken care of. There is no obligation to include a donation to Macmillan Caring Locally in your Will, but we really hope you consider the difference it will make to the charity and their work.
The Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital is a Specialist Palliative Care Unit and Hospice for patients in South East Dorset and South West Hampshire. The charity, Macmillan Caring Locally, works in partnership with University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust to provide services at the Macmillan Unit and in the community. The unit is supported and funded by Macmillan Caring Locally providing care and a homely environment for patients, their families and visitors. The charity also provides nursing and medical equipment to improve patient treatment and comfort.
This initiative pays for simple Wills, but reduced fees for more complex arrangements can be agreed upon.
