Have your say

A CHILDREN’S hospice has launched a legacy appeal to explain how gifts in wills can make a difference.

Donations or presents of any size can help Naomi House, which helps children from the Portsmouth area with life-threatening illnesses, make long-term plans, and continue to provide care services.

As part of the appeal, Naomi House is organising a Make Your Will Fortnight, which runs from next Monday, to May 24.

During this time, two solicitors’ firms – Saulet Ashworth in Portsmouth and Addison Law in Emsworth – have agreed to help.

Both firms will waive their normal fee for the preparation of a basic or standard will, in return for a donation to the hospice, near Winchester.

Paula Flower, legacy fundraiser at the hospice, said: ‘Everyone can benefit from making or reviewing their will, particularly if you have recently moved house, had children, divorced, retired or married.’
