Write a will and support Pilgrims Hospices
Posted on 10 February 2017
This February, you can make or update your will quickly and easily with Pilgrims Hospices Will Writing Month.
The scheme for east Kent residents sees solicitors across the region kindly donate their time and expertise in exchange for a donation to the charity.
The scheme is all about the local community working together.
Sara Scriven, Individual Giving Manager at Pilgrims Hospices, explains: “Will Writing Month has been incredibly popular so far, with appointments being booked up quickly last time. It’s a way for us to raise vital funds for the hospice while allowing local people the chance to make a will in a very accessible way.”
A suggested donation of £100 would pay for five hours of Pilgrims Hospices nursing care; whether that’s on one of its three hospice wards, in people’s own homes or in the community.
“Will Writing Month is all about the local community working together,” added Sara. “We are enormously grateful to all the solicitors firms who are taking part, for many of them this is the fourth year running. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has already signed up to take part. Your contribution will really make a difference to those who need Pilgrims Hospices care the most.”

Each year Pilgrims supports hundreds of local people coping with a life limiting illness and their families. The charity offers a range of services: from end of life care given on its wards, to its new wellbeing and social programme supporting people after they are diagnosed to live well and stay independent.
Did you know? 1 in 4 patients cared for by the hospice are cared for using funds which have been donated through legacy gifts. To find out more click here.
