Making your Will, or rewriting an existing one to reflect changes in your life, is never easy. Far simpler, it might seem, to defer such difficulties to another day. But simpler isn’t better.
Writing a Will or keeping it up to date, ensures your wishes are carried out. If you don’t leave a Will, your loved ones may not automatically inherit what you wanted to leave them.
For the month of May we’ve brought back our annual Will-writing offer. We’ve teamed up with a number of local solicitors to help you get the benefits of an up-to-date Will and to help us fund the vital care we provide. In return for a donation to us, they’ll kindly waive their basic Will-writing fee.
Debbie Matthews, Individual Giving Manager at Rennie Grove said: “When you make or update your Will with a participating solicitor during Make Your Will month, you’ll be helping other families too. For a suggested minimum donation of £175 for a single Will or £275 for a pair of mirrored Wills you’ll be saving money, supporting hospice care and gaining massive piece of mind.”
Gemma Baxter took advantage of our Make Your Will Month last year. “I already had a Will but it pre-dated my divorce more than a decade ago. It was well overdue an update, not least because my partner and I needed to put down on paper who would have guardianship of our son should anything happen to both of us.
“It’s not a nice thing to think about but it’s so important and to review it as the years go by. It’s great to have the peace of mind that comes from making an up-to-date Will. And even better to know that in doing so you’ve made a difference to someone else.”
