How to make a Will
Write your free Will

Use a trusted solicitor
Make a Will with our trusted partners, F Barnes Solicitors or Taylors Legal, in return for a donation to the Hospice.
Why is it important to make a Will?
Without a Will, there is no guarantee that your estate will be left to the people and organisations that are important to you.
Make sure you keep your Will updated when your circumstances change, for example, when you get married or as you buy property, so you know that whatever you leave behind will benefit those important to you.
Support people like Kelvin
You will help us care for patients, like Kelvin, who has lived with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for eight years. Let him tell you all about it.
"When my GP first suggested Saint Francis Hospice, it scared the life out of me. I thought I was going to the Hospice to die.
"My assumptions could not have been further from the truth. People talk about all sorts of things, not just their illnesses, yet there are brilliant medical professionals on hand if you need them.
"I have found new friends, optimism, calmness and care. It's not just tea and sympathy. In a world that can sometimes be cold and lonely, Saint Francis Hospice is a warm and friendly face."

always preferable to leave gifts unconditionally where possible, as this allows us to use your gift where it is most needed at the time we receive it.
Should I tell the Hospice I am planning to leave them a gift in my Will?
We know that many people like to keep the instructions placed in their Wills a private matter which we completely respect. If you do want to let us know that you have remembered Saint Francis Hospice in your Will, it will give us the opportunity to thank you.
