F Barnes are delighted to be working in partnership with St Francis Hospice in conjunction with their 'Make a Will' scheme. 

St Francis Hospice is a wonderful charity close to our hearts and we are ever grateful for the services they provide for our community.

Their team of specialist consultants, doctors, nurses and a range of other health and social care professionals provide care and support to individuals with a life-limiting illness, as well as their carers and family members, completely free of charge. 

The hospice relies solely on the donations given to the charity and requires over £7 million each year just to survive.

One of the main ways we can help from a legal perspective is to ensure that we assist with the gifting of Legacies through the preparation of a Will.

How does the 'Make a Will' scheme work?

The scheme provides for a Will to be prepared by ourselves, on your behalf, free of charge in return for a donation to be made directly to the Hospice.

No charge will be made by ourselves for the work we have completed for you to the hospice.

In order to qualify a donation of £200 is requested for a single straightforward Will and £300 for a couple who are making mirror Wills. There is no VAT added.

We can discuss with you the possibility of leaving a Pecuniary Legacy (fixed sum of money) or a Residual Gift to the Hospice if this is something that you wish to do but this is not necessary. The gift of a Legacy to a charity is just an option we can cater for if you would like this included in your Will.

How to book:

To enquire about making a Will under this wonderful scheme please contact Emma Chinnery

Spaces are limited per month.

Let us all do our part in supporting St Francis Hospice   Every single person who donates, volunteers and works for this charity help keep the services they provide going.

Please Note

Whilst making a Will is an extremely important thing to do, you must bear in mind that this legal document only comes into effect upon your death.

There are so many things that can be done to in relation to your estate, health and welfare during your lifetime it is worth discussing what options you have in relation to Tax Planning, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Severance of Joint Tenancy and Care Home Costs.

With most of us living longer and families becoming more complex it is worth talking to one of our advisors for an overall review of your estate and future management of your well being.

Contact F Barnes and mention St Francis Hospice, a member of our highly experienced team will be more than happy to help.
