Make a Will Month

Your opportunity to protect the people and things that matter most this May.

Join Herriot Hospice Homecare this month for their annual Make a Will month scheme in which you can make or update your will for free, while supporting hospice care.

Making a will gives you the opportunity to protect the people and things which matter most at key stages in your life.

The initiative sees participating local solicitors kindly waive their legal fees for writing or updating a basic will, which can cost between £200-£350. Instead, you are invited to make a donation to support Herriot Hospice care in your community.

How to get involved? Taking part couldn’t be easier. Simply select a solicitor from the list below and call them to book your appointment, quoting ‘Herriot Hospice Make a Will Month’. Also, you are welcome to download your free, digital information pack which contains useful information for you to consider ahead of your appointment.

Solicitor Details: Participating solicitors offer their appointments in a way that is convenient for you, and as easy as possible, whether that is phone, in person or home visits. Please know appointments are on a first come, first served basis so book early to avoid disappointment.

Why do I need a will? Read our helpful FAQs on why having a will and appropriate estate planning is important.

Your gift can make a difference for years to come: Did you know, 1 in 3 of our patients is cared for thanks to a gift left in a will. Once you have taken care of your family and friends in your will, consider leaving a gift to Herriot Hospice to ensure future generations will have access to our services. Even a gift of 1% of your estate once you have provided for your loved ones will help us make sure our hospice is there for everyone who needs it.

Help: If you are struggling to access information or aren’t sure where to start, please call us on (01609) 777 413 for support.
