Make a Will Month 2017

01 Mar 2017

Writing a Will is something many people keep putting off, always thinking there will be time to do it later. However, there are lots of important reasons to make or update your Will: getting married, buying property or even becoming grandparents. So the sooner it is done, the sooner you can relax in the knowledge that everything is in order.

How the Make a Will Month works

Our Make a Will Month is an opportunity for you to make or update your Will, and ensure that those you care about will be provided for in the way that you wish.

For the month of March, local solicitors across South Warwickshire have kindly donated a number of appointments to help you make or update your Will.

Instead of paying the Solicitor for their expertise, your donation will instead come to The Shakespeare Hospice.

The suggested minimum donations are:

Single Will: £90

Joint Will: £150

Codicil: £70 (to make an amendment to an existing Will)

These will be straightforward Will and any complex Wills including Inheritance Tax planning or setting up discretionary Trusts may not be covered by this fee.

All of the services at The Shakespeare Hospice are provided to our patients free of charge. This means that your donation will go directly to paying for the care of local people.

There is no obligation to include a gift in your Will to The Shakespeare Hospice if you take part in this scheme, however any such gift you make today could enable us to care for people long into the future.
