In June 2017, The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home (QAHH), Worthing, is teaming up with three local Solicitors for its Make a Will initiative. The participating Solicitors have all kindly agreed to waive their usual Will-writing fees in exchange for a donation to the charity.
Having an up-to-date Will is the best way to ensure that your wishes are not forgotten. Without one, you can’t be sure that your money and property will be passed on to the people and good causes you care about most. We should all make or update our Wills following life events such as marriage, having children, divorce or retirement – but it needn’t be daunting or expensive.
QAHH’s Make a Will Fortnight is a simple and cost-effective process. Bookings can be made now, with appointments taking place throughout June 2017. The minimum suggested donations are £70 for a Codicil, £120 for a Single Will and £200 for a Double Will – all less than standard Will-writing fees, and 100% of which will go directly towards supporting disabled veterans at QAHH.
Established in 1919, The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home is a registered charity, providing care and rehabilitation for physically disabled ex-Servicemen and women. The residents who live at QAHH have complex needs and some have multiple disabilities. Many have an Acquired Brain Injury and some have neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis. Others are paralysed or do not have use of their limbs and some are terminally ill. By making your Will via this initiative, you will be helping QAHH to maintain its nursing and rehabilitation services for those who have bravely served and protected our country.
