A hospice which brings comfort and dignity to a thousand terminally ill patients each year is asking the public to remember them in their wills.
One in four Thames Hospicecare patients has been cared for with money donated through a will - but research shows only one in three of us will make one.
Next week, in national Make a Will Week, people are being encouraged to visit one of eight solicitors to get a will drafted in exchange for an £85 donation to the hospice or £125 for a mirror will.
Sue Lindsey, fundraising and marketing director of the Windsor-based hospice, said: "If they do choose to make a gift to us then that gift will be used carefully and with due diligence, helping our patients live their life with dignity and respect right to the very end."
