PATIENTS, staff and volunteers at Weston Hospicecare are celebrating after a fundraising week raised more than £10,000 for the charity.

Several solicitors across the area took part in the charity’s fourth annual Make Your Will Week, which raised £13,243 to help fund patient care and support.

The week was supported by five local firms – Bennetts, Holley and Steer, Powellslaw, Wards Solicitors and Bartlett, Gooding and Weelen.

The firms wrote wills between them for 114 people, free of charge, in exchange for donations to the hospice, which is based in Uphill.

Sally Davis from Weston Hospicecare said: “The hospice received amazing support from these firms.

“We are very grateful to all the solicitors who generously gave their time and expertise to support Make Your Will Week, and to those people who took the opportunity to make their wills and donated to the hospice.”
