We are delighted to announced that we will be holding our 2016 Lasting Powers of Attorney Week from Monday 14th to Friday 18th March at our Glossop office in aid of Willow Wood Hospice.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) enables you to appoint a trusted friend, relative or professional to make decisions about your finances, property and personal welfare in the event that you are in an accident or you develop an illness that leaves you unable to make such decisions for yourself.
During this year’s LPA Week we will be offering various discounts to anyone who wishes to put an LPA in place and for every one drafted, Davis Blank Furniss will donate £25.00 to Willow Wood.
Located in Ashton-under-Lyne, Willow Wood provides specialist palliative care to those suffering with life-threatening illnesses. It first opened its doors for day hospice patients in May 1999 and for in-patients the following September. Since then, the dedicated Willow Wood team has cared for thousands of local people, their families and carers. In fact in the last year alone the Hospice cared for over 2,200 new patients who were in need of their specialist care.
The week long promotion includes both types of LPA: the first covers your property and financial affairs; and the second your personal welfare and health.
Laura Johnson, solicitor in our private client team, said: “We’re really excited about this year’s LPA Week – especially as we have the added element of raising funds for Willow Wood. Thinking about having an LPA can be daunting prospect so our aim is to take that anxiety away by providing practical help and guidance that will make local people think about their long-term plans and ensure their best interests are protected.”
John Fellowes , head of fundraising & PR at Willow Wood Hospice, added: “We’d like to thank the team at Davis Blank Furniss for supporting our work and we hope this year’s LPA week is a huge success.”
