Ison Harrison Solicitors are proud to be supporting St. Gemma’s Hospice Make a Will Month campaign this October.
What is Make a Will Month?
St. Gemma’s Hospice has teamed up with Ison Harrison and others to give you an opportunity to have your Will written for free if you make a donation to the hospice. Although there is no minimum donation to St. Gemma’s Hospice, below is an indication of how your donation could help:
- £75 could provide a complementary therapy session for a patient which could include massage, aromatherapy or hypnotherapy
- £100 could fund a specialist bereavement support session
- £145 could fund an intravenous therapy such as a blood transfusion for an Out-Patient

- Nearly 78% of adults in their 30s and more than 68% in their 40s have no Will in place?
- Even those getting older are overlooking the importance of making a Will, according to the financial website unbiased.co.uk
- More than half (54%) of those surveyed in their 50s and 27% of those in their 60s, have left no official bequests
- 68% of people expect to leave property valued at an average of £182,000 to someone on their death
- 75% intend to leave as much as £51,000 in cash and 56% say they want to pass on assets such as paintings, jewellery and antiques worth around £22,000
If you would like to have your Will written for free in exchange for donation to St. Gemma’s Hospice then please contact one of our friendly staff today at an office local to you:
At the appointment, the solicitor will hand you an envelope. Place your voucher and donation in the envelope and seal it, and the solicitor will pass it to St. Gemma’s Hospice.
This initiative applies to standard Wills, Mirror Wills (eg two identical Wills written for husband and wife) and Codicils (changes made to your current Will). If you find that your Will is not standard and requires specialist legal advice, your solicitor will advise you and agree a fee with you before continuing the process.
