THE Mary Stevens Hospice in Stourbridge is running its 'Make a Will' campaign throughout May to give people chance to write or revise their will at a subsidised rate and help raise vital cash for the charity.

The hospice has teamed up with four local will writers and solicitors from across the Dudley borough to administer the initiative and raise much-needed funds for the hospice based in Hagley Road, Oldswinford.

Anyone who signs up to write or revise their will during May will see half of the fee donated to the hospice to help with its £3.5 million annual operating costs.

Glover Priest, King Will's Wills, Talbots Law, and Wall James Chappell are the four partners signed up to the scheme.

Alex Winstanley, trusts fundraiser at The Mary Stevens Hospice, said: “Make a Will Month is a fantastic opportunity to update or write your will, which is one of those jobs that we all know we need to do but far too easily put off. Having a will, and making sure it is up to date, is incredibly important. No matter your age or health, your will ensures that your wishes are met and loved ones are taken care of.

"We would also hope that, after loved ones are taken care of, you consider leaving your hospice a gift."

Single wills are offered at £90 and double wills offered at £150 through the initiative, half of which will be donated to hospice.

People do not need to write a will in May, just to register interest during the month to receive a discount on the will writing service.
