Martin House Make a Will Month

Martin House Make a Will Month

04 May 2018
Hartlaw LLP is supporting Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People as it launches its annual Make a Will Month.
Hartlaw LLP is one of more than 30 firms from across the region that have signed up to take part in this year’s appeal, which takes place throughout May.

Make a Will Month offers people the chance to make or update a basic will at a lower fee – £60 for a single will and £110 for a pair of matching wills – a considerable discount on the normal cost.

Rachel Saunders from the Private Client Department said: “We are delighted to support Martin House by taking part in Make a Will Month, by ensuring more people have their affairs in order with an up-to-date will.”

Martin House cares for children and young people with life-limiting conditions from West, North and East Yorkshire, including respite stays, community visits and end of life care, as well as supporting their families.

Vicki Burnett, acting director of income generation at Martin House, said: “Making a will can seem a daunting prospect, or something that is easy to put off. But it means the things which are important to you will be taken care of after you’re gone. While there is no obligation to leave a gift to Martin House, we are incredibly grateful for any legacies people choose to leave us, as they will help us to continue to care for families who need our support for generations to come.”

It costs more than £8 million a year to run Martin House, and legacies in wills make up around a quarter of Martin House’s annual voluntary income, meaning it funds one in four children receiving care.

Vicki added: “We’d like to thank Hartlaw LLP for taking part in Make a Will Month and supporting Martin House in this way.”

To take advantage of Make a Will Month, you need to make an appointment with Hartlaw LLP, on 01937 547000, during May, and complete an entitlement voucher. For more information go to
