Hospice supporting solicitor takes time off training for China walk to help during Make a Will Week

Ian Hughes 4th Apr, 2019

AN INTREPID Leamington solicitor preparing to walk part of the Great Wall of China took time out from her training to support Myton Hospice during Make a Will Week.

Donna Bothamley, head of wills and probate at Blythe Liggins solicitors, will embark on her epic adventure walking along the Great Wall in May to raise funds for the hospice.

But first, Donna gave up her time and skills for free during the week-long event to help people write or update their wills in return for a donation to the hospice.

The charity is hoping to raise £42,000 from the China walk, enough to keep the Inpatient Unit running for seven days, and Blythe Liggins is paying all Donna’s expenses so that every penny of her sponsorship goes to the hospice.

Ellie Morgans at Myton Hospice said: “Writing a will is not at the top of most people’s ‘to-do’ lists but it is one of the most important things you can do. We would like to thank Blythe Liggins and everyone who took part in our Make a Will Week and helped to support Myton Hospices at the same time.”
