Before I Die Festival

The Hospice has joined forces with the York 'Before I Die Festival’ in celebration of Dying Matters Awareness Week, which is 14-20 May 2018. The Festival encourages people to be more open about dying, death and bereavement and gives advice and support on a number of simple practical steps which can make things easier for you, your family and friends when the time comes. Things like Power of Attorney, where you would like to be cared for as the end of life approaches, what music you might like at your funeral, what’s on your bucket list, and the gifts you may want to leave in your Will.

This Awareness Week is the perfect opportunity for the Hospice to promote our annual ‘Make A Will Week.’ Making a Will and letting your family and friends know your wishes are vital, and it can be a lot more affordable than you think. Once again, we are offering you the opportunity to have a Will written in exchange for a donation to the Hospice. We are very grateful to the participating solicitors who are giving their time, free of charge.
