Myton Hospice's Make a Will Week to raise much-needed funds

Leamington Editorial 29th Jan, 2024   0

HELP is at hand for those looking to write their will.

The Myton Hospice’s Make a Will Week takes place between March 4 and March 8.

Writing a Will is the only way to be sure an individual’s wishes are followed after their death and the people and causes they care about are still supported when they are no longer here.

And during Myton’s Make a Will Week the hospice is teaming up with local solicitors who have agreed to give their basic will writing services free of charge, in return for a donation.




Suggested donations are £99 for a single will and £189 for a pair of mirror wills.

To take part, all people have to do is find their nearest participating solicitor online at www.mytonhospice.org/MAWW and give them a call to make an appointment.


Appointments are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis so it is advisable to contact a chosen solicitor as soon as possible.

Chris Dean took part in Myton’s Make a Will Week campaign in 2023 after his wife died at Coventry Myton Hospice.

He said: “My wife, Ally, took her last breaths at Myton after being diagnosed with bowel cancer and secondary lung cancer. She was admitted for symptom control and pain management but unfortunately declined and suffered a stroke during her stay. She died 26 days after she was admitted.

“I was 50 when my sweetheart died, and she was 65. Going through something like this at a relatively young age makes you well aware of your mortality. We never saw this coming and could never predict it in a million years. Because of this, I knew it was important to ensure my will was up to date. I took part through Myton’s Make a Will Week as it was so simple and easy. I also left a gift in my will to Myton. If it helps others in my position, then it’s well worth doing!”
