Writing a will is something that many people do not think about until it is too late. In most cases, there is not enough incentive to write one, and the option of doing it later proves too tempting. However, in April 2018 there was another incentive to sit down and write one.

St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield is a charity providing care for those with incurable illnesses, helping to ease them through the last few months or even days of their lives. Their services operate free of charge, with over 70% of their funding coming from donations, and in April they run the St Luke’s Will Month. The premise is simple: participating law firms like Foys offer their will-writing services for free, and in return, all they ask is for a donation to St Luke’s.

This year our Sheffield offices took part, located in Waterthorpe and Chapeltown, and their combined efforts raised an astounding £3,290. Every penny of that goes to support the local community, helping to make the lives of those with terminal illnesses just that little bit easier.

The event may be over, but the importance of writing a will has never been higher. If you’re considering drafting one, then get in touch with your local Foys Solicitors office:
