Solicitors from across the Highlands have signed up to support Highland Hospice's Make a Will Month, which runs throughout the month of May.
During this time, anyone who makes an appointment to have a will drawn up, or their existing document amended, will simply be asked to make a donation to the Hospice, rather than the solicitor receiving payment for this service.
Highland Hospice's Corporate Fundraiser Karen Duff explains, "Many of our fundraising initiatives have been put on hold due to the lockdown as a result of Covid-19.
We are delighted that Make a Will Month can still go ahead, as the participating solicitors are able to create a will by using telephone, video or email to communicate with their clients. We are so grateful to those firms who have chosen to support us this year."
She added, "Making your will is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones, so we are urging people to do something amazing this May. By securing your legacy with Make a Will Month you will be supporting the work of Highland Hospice and your local community. "
Appreciating the value of Make a Will Month is the family of Stuart Dillon who was cared for by Highland Hospice in 2005 before sadly passing away at the age of 30.
His mother Barbara (pictured here with his brother Morris), said, "Every penny raised for Highland Hospice helps them to deliver the excellent standard of care that Stuart received. We are so grateful that his last days were made as good as they possibly could have been."
