We've put together some commonly asked questions to give you more information about Weldmar and the services we offer.

Our individually tailored care for patients and their loved ones takes place in the community, at home, and in our hospice

Leaving a gift in your Will

Weldmar’s popular Make A Will Month returns for a second year

6th August 2020



Weldmar Hospicecare’s annual Make A Will Month returns this October.

We’ve joined forces with a number of local solicitors, who will be offering a free Will writing service.  It’s estimated that more than half the adult population in the UK does not have a Will.

Here’s why making sure you have a Will is important:

Although this is a free service, we’re hoping that anyone who takes advantage of it will make a donation to Weldmar, or even consider leaving a gift in their will for us.

Sarah Balchin is Weldmar’s Legacy Fundraiser, and says, “Having a Will is really important, and can provide peace of mind at the most difficult time. We are delighted that a number of local solicitors have come on board and we thank them for giving their time to this important campaign, so that we can encourage more people to write their Will”.

Money donated in Wills directly pays for one in three patients that we look after, either in the comfort of their own home by our Weldmar Community Nurses, or at our Inpatient Unit in Dorchester.

With fundraising events cancelled, and some charity shops still closed, securing this funding to secure Weldmar services in the future is even more important.

Thank you to Battens, Blanchards Bailey, Hillman Legal Partnerships, Humphries Kirk, Kitson & Trotman, Nantes, and Porter Dodson, who are all participating in Make A Will Month.
