Support your family and your hospice with Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week

Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week, from 18 − 22 May, gives you the opportunity to make or update your Will with a local, South Devon solicitor who will donate the entire fee they’d normally receive directly to Rowcroft Hospice.

In these uncertain times, those living with life-limiting illnesses need your support more than ever.

Rowcroft's Make a Will Week is a great way to show your support; with local solicitors across South Devon donating their time to help you make or update your will in. Making a Will is important for you and your family. It brings peace of mind and knowledge that whatever the future might bring, your loved ones are financially protected.

To make or update your Will, simply book an appointment with a participating local solicitor and mention ‘Rowcroft’s Make a Will Week’. In return for this service, the suggested donation to Rowcroft for a single simple Will is £175, or £225 for a pair of simple mirror Wills. Or you may wish to donate more than the suggested fee, or you may also choose to leave a gift to Rowcroft in your Will. It’s up to you, but please rest assured that whatever you donate, 100% will go directly to the hospice.

By taking part in Make a Will Week, you’ll be helping patients with life-limiting illnesses to share precious time with their family and friends; you’ll be helping to make every day the best day possible for patients and their families, with the support of Rowcroft’s dedicated health and social care teams. 

Ian was admitted as a patient to Rowcroft Hospice on his 73rd birthday: “The welcome was absolutely outstanding: the food, the care, the attention to detail made me feel totally relaxed. I’ve watched the staff working and believe me, it’s not work − it’s love. When you feel that love, it’s like being covered by a giant soothing duvet.

“I intend to recognise Rowcroft in my Will and I would respectfully request anybody who is considering it, stop considering, do it − so that somebody else can enjoy the rather special, loving blanket, that is Rowcroft Hospice.”

Every pound Rowcroft receives from Make a Will Week goes directly towards supporting patients in South Devon living with life-limiting illnesses. 

Vicky Queen, Rowcroft’s Deputy Director of Patient Care, explains: “More than 70% of Rowcroft’s funding comes from the local community, and a huge proportion of that comes from gifts in Wills. However much you can donate to Rowcroft during Make a Will Week, no matter how big or small, is gratefully received and hugely appreciated by all of us.”

“Rowcroft gives you a smile,” says Ian. Rowcroft supports 80% of our patients in their own homes. We also provide care for patients and their family members at our 12-bed Inpatient Unit and Outpatient Centre in Torquay.
