£13,800 raised during Pendleside Hospice Wills Weeks


Farnworth Rose clients have raised a total of £13,800 in legacies for the Pendleside Hospice during the inaugural Wills Weeks.

The new Pendleside Hospice scheme saw people across the local area offered the opportunity to make a simple Will for free from October 14th to October 25th.

Solicitors from around local area waived their Will writing fee, with clients instead encouraged to leave a donation to Pendleside Hospice.

At Farnworth Rose, we were delighted to support Pendleside Hospice by offering free simple Wills and would like to thank everyone who took part and made a donation in their Will.

The 2-week offer not only contributed to the fundraising efforts of Pendleside Hospice but gave the community a great opportunity to plan for their future.

Can you still make a Free Will?

At Farnworth Rose, we will continue to offer free simple Wills through the Cancer Research UK Free Wills scheme.

Anyone aged over 55 can make a free simple Will through Farnworth Rose. Instead of paying our fee, clients are encouraged to make a donation by leaving a legacy in their Will to Cancer Research UK.
