Will Writing Month – February 2017
This February 2017 marks the fourth year of Pilgrims Hospices Will Writing Month. This campaign has been tremendously successful in raising vital funds to care for local patients and their families.
Solicitor firms across east Kent have kindly agreed to donate their time and expertise to write wills during February, in return for a donation to Pilgrims.
Suggested donations are £100 for a straightforward single will, or £150 for an uncomplicated double will. You are also welcome to donate more.
Please agree a fee with your solicitor for more complex wills (see below for more information).
All money kindly donated will directly support Pilgrims to help people facing a terminal diagnosis, and their families, to live well in every moment.

What is a complex will?
The donations recommended for wills written as part of this campaign are for straightforward wills. If your will is more complex, it may be necessary to agree a fee with your solicitor.
A complex will is one which involves a trust, or an arrangement which prevents or delays an outright inheritance of assets, making them available to people to benefit. Typically, this might mean that:
- There are children from previous relationships
- There is a member of the family with disabilities or illness which might make it advisable that money is held on their behalf, possibly even for the long-term.
Leave a lasting legacy
There is no obligation to include Pilgrims in your will. If you choose to, however, you’ll be doing something inspirational. It will cost you nothing now, but will help to secure the future of our services for more than 2,300 people each year.
Almost everyone in our local community knows someone who has, or could have, benefitted from the excellent work of our specialist medical staff.
For more information about how you can leave a gift to Pilgrims in your will please call Sara Scriven on 01227 782066 or email email@example.com.
