Wills to support Macmillan

  • Posted

We help with Wills.

We are proud to support Macmillan from Monday 19th to Friday 30th September with their Will Writing Campaign promotion. 

By supporting this campaign, you will be making a difference to the lives of local people affected by cancer.

We are offering 10 appointments per week for the 2 week period (as above) for you to be able to book an appointment to make a free Will in return for making a donation to Macmillan.
Any Wills written by Crombie Wilkinson Solicitors in connection with this offer between Monday 19th September and Friday 30th September will be written free of legal charge. Please make a minimum suggested donation of 175 to us per single Will and 275 per double Will for this service, which will be paid in full to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan provides essential medical, emotional, practical and financial support to people affected by cancer. In the York area, we have a team of 54 Macmillan professionals based within the hospital and out in the community working directly with patients and their families to make sure they do not have to face cancer alone. But everything Macmillan does is funded almost completely by donations so the support of companies like Crombie Wilkinson is absolutely crucial.” Macmillan in York

Please contact Belinda Poulter or Donna-Marie Peirse on 01904 624185 to book your appointment.

The Local Picture

Macmillan have 54 Macmillan professionals supporting people affected by cancer in York, including a Macmillan Breast Care Nurse, Macmillan Palliative Care Team and Macmillan Benefits Advisor.

180 could pay for a Macmillan Grant to help a person living with cancer heat their home when they really need to.

1500 could pay for one of the Macmillan Information Pods, which are designed to be taken to rural communities across Hambleton and Richmond, to be stocked with the information and resources it needs for six months.
