News: SPSJ Will Making Service

Posted on 3rd February 2017

St Peter & St James Hospice are running their Make a Will Month during April 2017.  They’ve partnered up with local solicitors to provide a free Will writing service in return for a donation to the hospice.

 

There are eight solicitors to choose from, based in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Hassocks and Lewes and they will be offering their services free of charge, in lieu of a donation to the hospice.

Recent studies have shown that about two thirds of adults have not made a Will. An up-to-date Will, written by a solicitor, will make sure your wishes are respected. It also prevents the Government from claiming your assets and avoids difficult decisions and legal complications for your loved ones.

 

Hospice Chief Executive, Colin Burgess, says “We would like to thank the solicitors for taking part in this scheme, many of whom have generously given their time to help the hospice. Their valuable contribution allows people in our local community to make their Will whilst supporting St Peter & St James”

 

Each solicitor will be offering one appointment for a limited number of people, to be taken up during April, so the sooner you can contact your preferred solicitor the better. If you wish to take part just contact Linda Taylor at the hospice on 01444 471598 or email linda.taylor@stpeter-stjames.org.uk

Testimonials

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
