Will Writing Bonanza for St Roccos Hospice

  • Posted

Where there’s a will, there’s a way! Cheshire law firm FDR Law has donated £3640 to St Rocco’s Hospice after participating in the charity’s annual will-writing week.

Warrington residents were invited to make a Will with one of FDR Law’s specialist Will-writing solicitors based at their offices in the town’s Palmyra Square, Stockton Heath and Frodsham. And instead of paying the solicitor, residents were asked to donate to charity instead.

Suggested donations were £50 for a codicil, £90 for a single Will and £150 for a pair of mirror Wills.

Emma Stride, a partner at FDR Law, based in Stockton Heath, said: “This was a great way for people to support a worthwhile charity and get a useful legal document drawn up at the same time.

“Too many people put off making a Will until it’s too late. The charity wWll-writing week gave many local residents the prompt they needed to put their affairs in order for the future.”

Thanking them, St Rocco Appeals Manager Claire Houghton said: “With costs of almost £8000 per day, 365 days a year, we rely on the local community for our funding. Each year St Rocco’s cares for hundreds of patients and their families in Warrington, all of whom are living with a diagnosis of a life threatening illness. You have made a real difference to all those we care for.”
