It is important to make sure you write a will and keep it up to date

This week is Dying Matters Awareness Week - May 10-16, it is a chance for individuals and organisations to open up the conversation around dying, death and bereavement. This year focuses on the importance of being in a good place to die.

There is no right or wrong place to die; it will be different for everyone. But the pandemic has proven that it is more important than ever for people to think about it, talk about it and plan for it.

During this week, The Prince of Wales Hospice is urging the local community to make sure their wishes are known by making or updating their will.

This new approach to will making is quick and easy, and just as safe as a face to face solicitor’s appointment. You don’t have to leave your home, and there are legal experts online 24/7 should you need any help. The online form will guide you through each step, making sure your wishes are documented accurately.

Hospice legacy fundraiser Anne Giblin said: “Making a will is one of those things that many people put off. However, a will can be an important way to protect your family and loved ones, and can also head off family disputes about how your possessions should be divided.

"We know that providing for your loved ones must always come first, but we ask you to consider a gift to the hospice in your will if you are able. A gift of just one per cent from your will could go on to give precious, pain-free time with family to a local person at the end of their life.

"By leaving a gift in your will to The Prince of Wales Hospice you will be supporting patients in the Five Towns area with a life limiting illness, at no cost during your lifetime.”
