Families are being encouraged to get their affairs in order – and help Walsall Healthcare’s Well Wishers charity at the same time – by taking part in a Make A Will Fortnight.
Local solicitors from Enoch Evans are supporting the charity once more and will use donations to benefit the work that Well Wishers does to enhance services for patients and their families who use Walsall Manor Hospital and its Community Services.
Make a Will Fortnight runs from 6-17 November with a suggested donation of £180 for a joint will and £100 for a single will. This year, the money raised will be used to benefit the Chemotherapy Unit at Walsall Manor Hospital.
Georgie Westley, Fundraising Manager at Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “The charity really values its fundraising partnership with Enoch Evans and has been running Make A Will Fortnight for a few years now.
“The COVID-19 pandemic prompted many people to plan for the future in the event of their death and also encouraged families to have what can sometimes be difficult conversations. This future planning remains important and by taking part in Make A Will Fortnight, and supporting the charity, people will also be helping others.”
Richard Neea, Partner and Head of Department at Enoch Evans, added: “Our communities are important to us as a Walsall company and working with Well Wishers helps us to ensure that local people are directly benefitting from the fundraising that takes place.
“In the past we raised money to refurbish a sensory room in the community for children with complex needs and disabilities and funded virtual reality headsets for young adults. We were able to see exactly how the funds had been spent which is why we think it’s important to work with a local charity that is making such a positive impact.”
