Make Your Will Month – 1st to 31st October

This October you can update or write your Will with participating local solicitors who’ll waive their normal fee in return for a donation to Nottinghamshire Hospice.

Making a will - A fountain pen above the words 'My Will'

Without a Will there is no guarantee your loved ones will be provided for when you die.

Making a Will is very important as it makes sure the things you leave behind go to the people and causes you care about. More than half the UK population don’t have an up to date Will – don’t let this be you! Writing a Will doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive and this October Nottinghamshire Hospice can help.

During October you’ll be able to update or write your Will with participating local solicitors who’ll waive their normal fee in return for a donation to Nottinghamshire Hospice.
The suggested donation for a basic Will is £100 – £120 or for mirrored Wills £180 – £250.

Why update my Will during Make Your Will Month?

Your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign and it ensures your estate and possessions can be distributed as you want them to be and ensures peace of mind and security for you and those you love. All of the money donated by you for the drafting of the Will is given directly to Nottinghamshire Hospice to help us to provide care and support people with a life limiting illness, their families and carers.
