MAKE a Will - and make a difference for a very special Ayrshire charity.

Last year, the Ayrshire Hospice was absolutely delighted that over £30,000 was raised during their Make a Will Fortnight, with 372 wills being prepared or updated by the participating solicitors across Ayrshire & Arran.

And they want to enlist the support of this year’s event, which runs October 15 to 26.

The campaign is hugely popular and has now raised over £140,000 for the hospice since it began seven years ago mainly thanks to the ongoing suppor t of the manyparticipating solicitors throughout Ayrshire who willingly give their service free of charge to the Ayrshire community in return for a donation to the hospice.

Kathryn Howell, Senior Fundraising Officer at the hospice said: “Our thanks must go to the generous solicitors and supporters in the Ayrshire community and beyond, for once again supporting this important campaign.

“It really was an exceptional amount to raise during the two-week campaign whilst at the same time providing our supporters with some important advice on making their will”.

If you are looking to make or update your will, why not take advantage of this year’s Make a Will Fortnight. All you need to do is call the participating solicitor of your choice to book an appointment during that fortnight.

The solicitors will guide you through the process and will also collect your donation to the hospice.

There are a number of participating solicitors around Ayrshire - including in Ayr, Troon, Prestwick and Girvan.

See below for details or by call their Fundraising Office on 01292 288488.

So why not Make a Will and make a difference this October.
