Make a Will Month

Write or update your Will with us

“We have pledged a gift to Willen Hospice in our Will as a way to thank them for the love and care they provided to dad during his final moments, It’s our way of giving something special back to them after we are gone, having the confidence knowing that our gift no matter how big or small will make a huge difference to the lives of patients and their loved ones long into the future” – Nas

Every MAY AND OCTOBER, participating solicitors will waive their fees for writing or updating a Will in lieu of a donation to Willen Hospice. Solicitors will advise on the amount, which is usually half the cost they would normally charge for their services.

Three steps to writing your Will

  • Step 1: Select a Solicitor and make an appointment

    Select a solicitor from the list below. They are all trusted localb solicitors who are fully involved with and supportive of Willen Hospice.

    Please consider leaving a gift in your Will to us. Whatever you decide to give to us, will make a huge difference now and in the future.

  • Step 2: Think about who you'd like to include and what kind of gifts you would like to leave.

    Make a list of everything you own, such as the value of your house, car, savings, jewellery, stocks and shares and what you owe. This includes the outstanding balance of your mortgage, overdrafts, bank loans and other debts. This is the time to appoint a trusted friend or family member to be your executor (someone who will make sure your wishes are carried out).

    There are three kinds of gifts you should consider. Remember to list the full names and addresses of who you want to benefit.

    1. Specific gifts or items.

    2. A residuary gift. A gift that can be made once all debts have been paid and any fixed gifts given, often a portion of your estate, divided into percentages.

    3. A pecuniary gift. This is a specific amount of money.

  • Step 3: Let us know you have pledged a gift in your Will

    To help us plan our services for the future, we would be delighted if you could let us know if you have left a gift in your Will. We would love to have the opportunity to thank you personally for your pledge and keep you up to date with our work. Email or call 01908 303068 (Monday to Friday between 9am to 5pm).
