Tilly Bailey & Irvine's Wills and Probate team in Hartlepool waived the regular client fee for the preparation of a Will in return for clients making a donation to Alice House Hospice.

Lots of people took us up on this opportunity, being an opportunity to cross something off their ‘To Do’ list and raising more than £3,000 in the process.

For many, their circumstances may have changed: grandchildren, a new house or bereavement and for some they also took the opportunity to remember a charity with a gift.

Rebecca Jobson, Senior Manager Communications and Supporter Care, said: “I would like to extend a massive thank you to all those that have taken part.

“The money you have raised is a huge help to the local families who rely on hospice care and I am sure that knowing your wishes will be taken care of will bring you great peace of mind.”

Nicola Dalzell, Partner with and Head of Tilly Bailey & Irvine’s Wills and Probate team, said: “We’ve collected the donations and were very pleased to be able to present the hospice with a cheque for £3,100.

“We know our clients are always keen to support the hospice appeal, and their generosity is a clear indication of how much the people of Hartlepool value the service the hospice provides”.

This comes off the back of another successful afternoon tea, which helped raise approximately £4,500 for the hospice, while Make A Will Month last year gained well over £3,000 also.
