Clare Breeze heard about Dougie Mac Make a Will Month during her time firstly as a volunteer for the hospice and then as a member of the Lottery Administration team. Here she explains what leaving a gift in her Will means to her.
“You never know what is going to happen and I didn’t want to leave my mum and dad with any hassle,” Claire said.
The 44 year old from Burslem, chose to leave a gift in her Will after witnessing the care her granddad received 15 years ago at the hospice.
“His first stay was for pain relief and he thought the place was wonderful.
“It was the small things that helped. The nurses let him have a little bit of whisky at night and he became friends with some of the other patients.
“He often walked down the corridor waving to everyone as he went,” she said.
Claire is definitely comforted by the thought that her gift will support other patients and families that require support from Dougie Mac.
“I’m comforted by the thought that what I leave behind can go to a place which will make such a difference.
“I know people put off making their Will, they think it’s complicated and expensive or don’t want to think about their death, but planning your Will can give you peace of mind about the future,” Claire added.
