2023 Community Wills Day
In May 2023, we held our second annual Community Wills Day event where members of our community came together to have a legally valid Will written, whilst also raising money for a cause close to their heart.
It was amazing to see so many of our supporters, as well as many Hospital patient families, come along on the day and raise over $3,000 in the process!
Thank you Finlaysons
This Community Wills Day was kindly supported by Finlaysons Lawyers who generously donated their time.
Nikki Owen (pictured above, right), Partner at Finlaysons, said, “Finlaysons Lawyers has been in Adelaide for over 150 years and is proud to give its time and support to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation, and the incredible work it does for the community.”
“Each year we look forward to playing our small part in contributing to the health and wellbeing of women, children and families under the care of the Women’s and Children’s Health Network.”
Why having a Will is important
More than half of Australians don’t have a valid Will. Seeking advice from a Wills and Estate Solicitor ensures that you have the correct discussions about what is being controlled by your Will, including both estate and non-estate assets.
Having discussions about exactly what your wishes are in respect to your Will, and making sure you have the right people appointed to administer your estate, better ensures effective distribution of your assets to your beneficiaries.
Including the use of valid wording in your Will further protects those you love, and can support organisations close to your heart.
We are grateful to the thoughtful supporters who decide to leave a gift in their Will to the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation. Even 1% of your estate can make a significant contribution to the women, children and families being cared for by our Hospital.
