Leaving a gift in your Will is a valuable way to support the work we do and make sure we are able to support our patients and their families in the future.
Staff at the hospice work tirelessly to ensure people receive the vital and specialist care and support when they need it most – but we rely on the help of our community to so we can continue to offer this amazing care.
What is Make a Will Month?
Our annual Make a Will Month offers our supporters the chance to make a Will with various local solicitors in return for a donation to Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice.
Not having a Will can lead to confusion, upset and uncertainty at what could be a very emotional time. Making the steps to get your affairs in order now will mean you can enjoy quality time with your family and friends, knowing that you have done everything you can to ensure they will be looked after.
Thanks to our participating solicitors from across Cumbria, you can create your Will at a reduced rate this April, giving you peace of mind for the future.
If you would like more information before then you can make an enquiry using the form and we will get back to you.
