Wills Month, now in its 6th year, ran throughout June 2018.
Every year, a number of local solicitors from across north east Essex generously offer Will writing appointments waiving their normal fee and instead ask for a donation to St Helena Hospice.
We ask that to have your Will written you make a suggested donation of just £100 for a single Will or £175 for a double/mirror Will.
Sue D'Anna used the Wills Month scheme in 2016 and said: "For me, Wills Month gave me the chance to get my affairs in order, whilst knowing that I was also supporting a charity that was close to my heart." Watch a short film of Sue explaining her reasons to write a Will in Wills Month.

Wills are not only important to us, but they are important to the individual writing one too. They ensure affairs are in order, final wishes are met and loved ones are looked after in the future. Many people choose to show their support for St Helena Hospice in their Will. A gift doesn't have to be big to have a big impact on the local people we help.
You can find more information about leaving a gift in your Will to St Helena Hospice here.
