Will Fortnight Raises over £13k for Hospiscare


Ali McGeown and her family


For two weeks in June, 14 local solicitors across Exeter, Mid and East Devon waived their usual fee for preparing a simple Will so their clients could instead make a suitable donation to local charity, Hospiscare. The charity has been operating this popular scheme for 10 years now with the help of the legal profession and this year more than £13,500 has been raised to fund the charity’s care of adult patients who are living with a terminal illness.

Hospiscare supporter Ali and her husband Steve wrote their Wills this year with a solicitor in Exeter and commented “We were both happy and relieved to put our affairs in order and help Hospiscare at the same time. The solicitor was incredibly helpful and made sure we considered things that might not otherwise have occurred to us - with two children, savings and a house to think about, this was really important. It’s very simple to organise and we’ve supported a wonderful local charity.”

Hospiscare is the local hospice that covers the Exeter, Mid and East Devon area. Their specialist team of nurses and clinicians care for 2,000 patients each year who are living with any form of terminal illness. All of its services are provided free of charge.

Hospiscare provides specialist care for adults with any kind of terminal illness, and support for their carers and families in Exeter, Mid and East Devon. A gift to Hospiscare in your Will helps to ensure the future of the charity for generations to come.
