Bishop’s Stortford Solicitors come up trumps for Isabel Hospice
Bishop’s Stortford based solicitor Lever & Co were recently presented with a certificate to say thank you for their part in the 2017 Isabel Hospice Make A Will Week campaign.
During Make A Will Week, solicitors provide their Will writing services for free, in return for a donation to the Hospice by members of the public. This year the campaign raised £28,160, with Lever & Co raising an amazing £7,362.50 for the Hospice.
Beth Hardy said “We are delighted that Angela and her team were able to raise as much as they did. Without the support of company’s such as Lever & Co, Isabel Hospice could not continue to care for local people with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer and motor neurone disease. Our Clinical Nurse Specialists visit patients in their own home, giving specialist advice and support, and our weekly Living Well sessions at the Barnabas Centre in Thorley provide patients and their families with exercise and relaxation classes, art therapy and complementary therapy, helping them live well, in the time they have. Having these services so local to Bishop’s Stortford, means they don’t have to travel very far to access all the help on offer to them.”
Isabel Hospice needs to raise around £3 million each year to be able to continue to offer free palliative care to local people. Without campaigns such as Make A Will Week we would not be able to care for the people of Bishop’s Stortford, enabling them to live well, in the time that they have.
Make A Will Week 2018 will take place from 5th to 9th of March 2018. If you would like to find out more come along to our 2018 launch event on 22nd November at Longmores Solicitors in Hertford.
