PEOPLE are being encouraged to think about making a will.

The Rowans Hospice is holding its first Make A Will Fortnight to encourage everyone to put their affairs in order.

In Portsmouth, 14 solicitors have agreed to waive their fees during the two weeks in return for a donation to the Purbrook-hospice.

Staff and volunteers will be out during Dying Matters Awareness Week, which starts on Monday.

Matron Erika Lipscombe said: ‘It’s vital everyone has an up-to-date will and your loved ones are aware of your wishes. This is a great opportunity to make a will and give a donation to the hospice to benefit people affected by life-limiting illnesses.’

To take advantage, contact one of the participating solicitors – Addison Law, Allens Solicitors, Biscoes, Blake Lapthorn, Coffin Mew, Glanvilles Solicitors, Gurney Champion and Co, Larcomes, Large and Gibson, O’Hara Solicitors, Stokes Solicitors, Verisona Solicitors and Advocates, Woodgate and Co, and Ramsbottoms Wills Trust and Probate – and make an appointment between June 3 and June 14, for a meeting.
