How does Hospiscare Will Fortnight work?

Our Will Fortnight is an opportunity to make your Will or get your existing Will up to date and help Hospiscare too. Local solicitors are supporting Hospiscare by giving up all of their usual fee for writing a standard Will so you can donate to Hospiscare instead.

  • Bookings can be made direct with participating solicitors listed below from 13 May. Places are limited so do make your appointment promptly. 
  • At the initial meeting, you explain what you would like in your Will.
  • Your solicitor will help you express your wishes clearly and guide you through the process.
  • In the unlikely event specialist advice is required, your solicitor will explain, giving a separate price for additional work.
  • Once your Will is drafted the solicitor will share it with you and arrange for you to sign it.

Your donation

Please bring your donation along on your first visit. Your solicitor will advise you how much making a Will would usually cost (around £250-£350) and ask you to complete a Hospiscare donation form.

When deciding how much to donate, please consider their generosity by choosing an amount that recognises the value of time and expertise given.

Please make cheques payable to ‘Hospiscare’, not the solicitor.

There is no obligation whatsoever to include a gift to Hospiscare in your Will and your arrangements are private. If, having reviewed your personal circumstances, you decide you would like to leave a gift to Hospiscare in your Will, thank you.

Why do I need a Will? 

Look after your loved ones

Having a professionally written Will is the best way to ensure you can protect the ones you love and remember causes you care about.

Landmark life events are the times to consider writing or reviewing your Will. If you have recently married or divorced, become a parent or grandparent, lost a spouse or relative, retired or moved house, now is the time to get around to making or updating your Will – it is straightforward and Hospiscare’s Will Fortnight is the ideal opportunity.
