Remaking our wills became a much better experience as Jennifer Humphreys guided us through a more understandable and flexible format making us feel confident and comfortable with the arrangements. Similarly Christopher Howard gave an exccellent efficient and friendly service whilst dealing with two probate applications. The support staff were also very helpful and friendly and good communicators."

Solicitors’ will writing offer boosts charity.

A free will writing service offered for one week by two solicitors firms to raise money for The Ipswich Hospital Charity has been a huge success. The Write a Will week gave people a chance to cut the cost of planning for their legacy after death.ihc logo

The charity’s Kate Ashton and Jess Watkins took details from people wanting to be referred to the solicitors Marshall Hatchick or Gotelee solicitors. Jess said: “We secured fabulous support from two solicitors to offer those who didn’t have a will to get one done for free.
“Those who needed their will altered could also take up the offer,for example, if they had just had children or some of their circumstances had changed in some other way. We hoped it would act as a catalyst to inspire people to take up the opportunity. It’s important not to just keep putting it off.”

The charity also hoped to raise its profile and encourage people to leave it a gift when they die. “Legacies are really important,” Kate said. “They make a real difference to the work we can achieve. You can do the right thing by family and friends and still help out your local hospital. Even a small inheritance makes a massive difference.”

A professionally-written will usually costs between £100 and £200. The charity is hoping those who took up the offer will be generous after making significant savings. A gift of £50 (minimum) is suggested. Gotelee’s Helen Crapnell said: “We were delighted to help support the legacy week and we offered as many free wills as we could at our Ipswich, Hadleigh and Felixstowe offices.”
