Between 7-18 March, there will be around 50 appointments available to have your will professionally written or updated.

Writing a will is often one of those jobs that gets left behind and stays on our to do list for ages but having a professionally written up to date will is so important. It is the only way of ensuring that the loved ones and causes you care about are remembered in the way you want them to be, leaving no room for uncertainty and no stress for the people left behind.

In addition, many charities rely on legacies left in people’s wills to help them continue their work and Rockinghorse Children’s Charity is no different.

A gift left to Rockinghorse in your will could play an important part in their ongoing mission, helping the charity be there for Sussex children and families for another 50 years.

But sorting a will can be difficult to get around to. However, Rockinghorse are partnering with local solicitors Taylor Rose, ODT and Coole Bevis LLP to offer up to 50 free appointments to help you finally get this job done.

Sharon Gearing, Trusts Fundraising Manager at Rockinghorse said: “We are so thankful to Taylor Rose, ODT and Coole Bevis LLP for offering their services to our supporters. With the cost of a single will being around £150 and a joint will around £250 this really is a wonderful offer.

“There is no obligation to leave a gift in your will to Rockinghorse if you use this offer, however, once you have provided for those closest to you, we really hope you might give some thought to supporting our work in this important way. Any gift you chose to leave would help us to be there for local families in the years ahead.”

Sharon explained more about why leaving a gift to charity in your will is so important to the charity sector: Thanks to donations and gifts left to us in our supporter’s wills, we can fund up to 50 new projects a year helping around 12,000 Sussex children. A gift left in your will could change the lives of children and families living in your community for many generations to come.”

To get an idea of the impact that a gift in your will can have, here are some examples of what a donation to Rockinghorse can achieve:

  • £1,000 could provide mental health support to a child and their family going through a cancer diagnosis
  • £5,000 could help fund a vital piece of equipment in one of our children’s hospitals, helping to save young lives
  • £10,000 could fund sensory equipment for children with disabilities, helping them to reach their highest possible potential.
  • £100,000 could pay for the refurbishment of a children’s hospital ward to give ill children the best possible environment, helping to take away some of the fear, stress and anxiety

Whilst these appointments are free, the charity suggests that you might like to make a donation in place of paying the usual fee.

If you would like to donate, you can make a suggested donation of £90 towards a single will or £150 towards a joint will once your will is finalised. and this can be done via the charity’s website quoting ‘free will offer’ or by calling our office on 01273 330044.

To take advantage of this offer, visit the Rockinghorse website at, search ‘Leave a gift in your will’ and choose one of the solicitors taking part. You can book your appointment from 1 February and bookings will stay open until all the free places are taken.
