Ballyclare solicitors J.W. McNinch & Son recently supported Northern Ireland Hospice’s Make A Will Fortnight.
During this period, they invited clients to make a donation to Northern Ireland Hospice in lieu of their will making fee. A fantastic £1,325 was raised.
Sharon Gorman, donor officer, said: “We would like to extend our sincere thanks to J.W. McNinch & Son Solicitors and the local community for supporting this campaign. Their immense generosity is really appreciated as it will enable us to fund 13 nights of hospice care in patients’ own homes across the province.
“With increased demands on the service, an ageing older population and annual running costs of over £9million, Hospice’s reliance on gifts in wills is more crucial than ever. In fact, this year one in five of our patients will receive hospice care as a result of gifts left in wills”.
Solicitor Philip McCall added: “We were delighted to work in partnership with Northern Ireland Hospice during Make A Will Fortnight and to raise such a substantial donation.
“Writing a will is the most important thing you can do to protect your family and loved ones. This initiative offered the local community an ideal opportunity to plan ahead for their loved ones whilst supporting such a worthy local charity. Our other offices in Glengormley, Larne and Carrickfergus also participated and we await confirmation of their fundraising success.”
