Make a Will

Throughout the year we will offer our Make a Will campaign in partnership with  local solicitors. The solicitors taking part will write standard or mirror Wills with the fee for this service coming directly to our hospice.


How it works

The solicitors won't charge you for their services. Once you meet with the solicitor you will be given advice based on your circumstances and wishes and if you decide to go ahead you will be asked to make a suggested minimum donation direct to the Hospice of £200 for a standard Will or a £300 for a mirror Will.

Why is it important to make a Will?

People don't always realise that if they don't make a Will, their assets will not necessarily go where they would like. Our Make a Will campaign is a great opportunity to either write or update a Will and also support the hospice at the same time.

Some things to consider before you make a Will

What do you have to pass on?

Make a list of everything in your estate. Make note of things you own jointly with other people.

Who do you trust to carry out your wishes?

You will need to appoint two executors who can carry out your wishes for you, for example, overseeing the sale of property.

Who will you leave your estate to?

You can decide how you will divide your estate up and who will benefit. As well as friends and family, don't forget to consider how you could help support a charity with a lasting legacy.
