Retford law firms Jones & Co and Dean Thomas & Co set aside a limited number of appointments free of charge to help people make a basic will.

Instead of paying the solicitor for their professional advice, they made a donation to Bassetlaw Hospice and raised £1,538.

Helen Eshelby, fund-raising and events co-ordinator at the Hospice, said: “We are extremely grateful to Jones & Co and Dean Thomas & Co for taking part and we would like to thank them for all their time in making the scheme a success.”

“We would also like to thank all those who took up the offer and donated so generously to the hospice.”
