The initiative, from March 20 to 24, is part of the annual Make a Will Week, which raised £8,000 in 2015 – and solicitors across North Herts and Stevenage are taking part.

The firms taking part are BBW of Letchworth and Stevenage, Tollers of Stevenage, Friis and Radstone of Letchworth and Stevenage, Heckford Norton of Stevenage, HRJ Foreman Laws of Hitchin, Ross Williams of Hitchin and Penn Sassoli of Royston.

Hospice development manager Katy Terry said: “Thanks to all the participating solicitors for giving people this fantastic opportunity to get an affordable, professional will written while supporting local patients and families who are facing a life-limiting illness.”

Those supporting the campaign include Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland, who urged anyone without a will to contact one of the participating firms.

“So please if you need to make a will or need to make an adjustment to a current will, call to make an appointment now.
