Pleased to Support Katharine House Hospice
Over the last two years, Katharine House Hospice in Adderbury has mounted their “Make a Will Week” in October of each year. My company took the decision to support them in this, as so many of my clients have specified gifts by way of legacies through their Wills to this wonderfully caring place. I have also seen at first hand some of the superb care they provide for terminally ill patients. This year will be no exception, and again will take place in October 2014 (Exact dates to follow)
It is hoped that this sort of promotional campaign will a) heighten awareness of the need for a Will, 2) heighten awareness of the need to keep existing Wills under review 3) increase awareness of the great work which Katharine House does and finally 4) raise much-needed funds for Katharine House to enable them to carry out their vital care and support work. Last year the campaign raised c. £20,000 – which is a very meaningful contribution to their coffers.
The promotion offers the public the chance to make a Will (or amendments to an existing Will) with their chosen provider (such as my Company) but instead of the fee being paid to the provider, it is paid direct to Katharine House Hospice as a donation – preferably through the Gift Aid scheme, thereby increasing the donation.
Definitely something well worth supporting – I will post further details as I have them.
