Make Your Will Month 2017

Make Your Will Month

Make Your Will Month has ended for 2017. Our sincere thanks go to all of the Solicitors that took part and to the supporters who made donations to us during the campaign.

We will be running Make Your Will Month again in February 2018. If you urgently need to make/update a Will before February 2018 please get in touch with us on 01442 890222 / fundraising@renniegrove.org.

How does Make Your Will Month work?

If you haven’t yet made a will to provide for your family in the future, you might like to consider taking advantage of Make Your Will Month. Throughout the month of February, a selection of local solicitors team up with Rennie Grove Hospice Care to offer a will writing service. The solicitors are all keen to communicate the message that writing a will is the only way you can be sure that your money and property goes to the people you want it to.

To raise awareness of this message, these solicitors offer to waive their fee for writing a standard will during the month of February in return for a donation to Rennie Grove Hospice Care. Many people also take the opportunity to leave a gift in their will to us to help fund the future of our care for local patients diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illness and the support we provide for their families from diagnosis, throughout their illness and after bereavement.

How much should I donate?

It's up to you how much you choose to donate but as a guide it may help you to know how much it costs to make a will.

The cost of a will can vary depending on how complex your affairs are. We ask that you consider making a donation of £99 for a single standard will and a £195 for standard joint will (or mirror will) for couples - less than most solicitors fees.

The solicitors taking part in our Make Your Will Month scheme are kindly offering their services free of charge for drawing up a Standard Will. If your affairs are complex, such as involving trusts or overseas properties there will be additional costs involved aside from the standard will fee waiver which will be discussed at your initial appointment.

How do I take part?

Simply book an appointment with the participating solicitor of your choice during February and quote ‘Make Your Will Month Rennie Grove’. A list of participating solicitors for 2018 will be published here in December 2017/January 2018.
