Make or update your Will

Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week is a great time to make or update your Will. For one week only, from the 15 – 19 May 2023, local participating solicitors will generously waive their entire Will-making fee (or Will-updating fee) in return for a donation to the hospice.

The suggested donations are £175 for a simple single Will and £225 for simple mirror Wills.

For Wills requiring specialist advice, a fee can be agreed in advance.

Telephone and video call appointments may be available with some participating solicitors.

By taking part in Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week you will be supporting your local hospice, ensuring that every day is the best day possible for over 2,000 patients and families in South Devon.

Your family's security

Having a Will ensures that your family’s future is secure and that your wishes will be followed through.

Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week is a good time to make or update your Will, especially if your marital status has changed, you have moved house, had a bereavement or birth in the family, or if your financial circumstances have altered.

By taking part in Make a Will Week you’ll also be helping families in South Devon who are living with life-limiting illnesses to make the most of every moment they have together. Last year, Make a Will Week raised £13,330!

Your donations and gifts in Wills

75% of Rowcroft’s care is provided thanks to donations and gifts in Wills and your donation will help to fund support in patients’ homes, the community and at the hospice’s Inpatient Unit in Torquay.

The care we were given left us with peace

“We’d been supporters of Rowcroft Hospice for several years without ever thinking we would need their services,” said Robin Hill of Brixham.

Soon after he and his wife Angie had lost their 51-year-old daughter Sharon to cancer in 2020 after she was cared for in Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit, they were dealt another devastating blow – Angie was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. As Angie’s condition deteriorated, Rowcroft stepped in again – this time with its Hospice at Home Team supporting Robin and Angie at their home and enabling the couple to share precious moments together during Angie’s final days.

“As matters with Angie drew to the inevitable conclusion, I became even more appreciative of Rowcroft’s support,” said Robin. “It made me realise I was not alone in facing this truth. It’s very hard to imagine the value of Rowcroft to the local community, but it is priceless. Our lives were changed from being so dark to a place where we all – especially Sharon – found peace.”

Due to the lasting difference Rowcroft Hospice has made to his life, Robin pledged to leave a gift to the hospice in his Will to help other people experience the loving care of the hospice just as his family had.

“Leaving even a small gift in your Will to this wonderful local charity is your chance to play a vital role in helping families like us in the future,” said Robin.

Leave a gift in your Will

No matter how big or small, a gift in your Will is a really special way to ensure that our care and support can be provided to more patients and their families for generations to come.
