During April and November we are working with a number of local solicitors who are freely giving their time to help the Hospice. Instead of a fee they will ask that you make a donation to Willow Wood.
For a simple single Will they will suggest a donation of £80 or £160 for a pair of mirror Wills. Of course, if your needs are more complex there may be an additional charge, however, the solicitor will be happy to discuss this with you.
By making a Will you are ensuring that when you die your estate (house, flat, car, shares or investments, personal possessions etc) is shared according to your wishes. This is even more important if you have children or grandchildren, if you own a business or property, or have savings and investments.
If you don't have a Will then your estate will be divided according to pre-set rules. Your partner, whether you are married, in a civil partnership or living together and your children and step-children may not automatically inherit.
You do not need to have had any relationship with Willow Wood to take advantage of our Wills Month, and you are under no obligation to leave us a Gift in your Will. However, if you wish to support our care in this way we would be very grateful.
It's so easy to make a will, and by leaving even 1% to Willow Wood you are looking after your loved ones first. Your family and friends will receive 99% of your estate and you can ensure that special mementoes are given to those who will appreciate them the most.
Your Gift to us however will mean that we are able to care for local people when they need our love, care and support.
