Will Month

Write or update your Will with us

Writing a Will can give you great peace of mind and the assurance that your final wishes will be carried out.

Twice a year, in May and October, Willen Hospice offers you a chance to write your Will  free of charge, in return for a donation.

  • IN PERSON: From September 2021, you can make appointments with our participating  solicitors or Will-writers. (The full list will be published here)
  • ONLINE: Write your Will online in the comfort of your own home, with our partners, Kwil. They will guide you through the process, quickly and easily.

Below, you’ll find a step-by-step guide on what to prepare when considering your Will. If you would like more information, please contact legacies@willen-hospice.org.uk or call us on 01908 663636.
