Will Month

Write or update your Will with us

Having an up-to-date Will is the only way to ensure your wishes for the future are met, giving you that peace of mind that your loved ones are looked after and that the causes you care about continue to make a difference to people’s lives. If writing a Will is on your to-do list, help is at hand.

This May, local Solicitors and professional Will-writers are kindly pledging their time to Willen Hospice by offering a set number of appointments to people who want to write or update their Wills.  In return, all they ask is that you make a minimum suggested donation which provides a considerable saving on their usual professional Will Writing services. Please see our Terms and Conditions below.

Here is a list of our participating solicitors or Will-writers. To  book an appointment, please contact them directly.
