Why local legal
advice is best

St Christopher’s Hospice Will Week — 7th to 11th September

Thomas Dunton Solicitors are delighted to be part of this year’s Will Week and working with St Christopher’s Hospice to raise some much needed funds. Please find below details of the event as released by the charity.

Currently 22% of St Christopher’s income comes via gifts in people’s Wills. So why not sort out your affairs, get peace of mind and help St Christopher’s at the same time?

During 7-11 September 2015 please contact one of our Will Week solicitors, quoting ‘St Christopher’s Will Week’, and make an appointment at a mutually convenient later time for your Will to be drawn up.

Some local law firms are kindly donating their services to St Christopher’s, but request that, instead of paying them a fee, you support St Christopher’s with a single gift of £150 for a for a simple Will and £200 for a pair of simple mirror Wills. Any additional legacy you then choose to leave to St Christopher’s in your Will would be a wonderful bonus!
