Make A Will Month 

September 2019

Ensure that your loved ones are taken care of in your Will, and help the Hospice at the same time by making a new Will or updating your Will during our Make a Will Month, to be held in Autumn 2019.

Local solicitors will waive their fee in lieu of a donation*, which will help the Hospice support more local people to live their precious lives well.

  • Decide who you would like to take care of and remember in your Will
  • Reduce or eliminate your family's inheritance tax
  • Help patients and families affected by life-limiting illness

Our suggested minimum donation towards the care offered by The Hospice of St Francis is £140 for a basic Will or £200 for a pair of basic mirror Wills.

Kwil - The simplest way to write your will

Kwil - the online will writing service

Draw up a will online in just 30 minutes and for as little as £90 with Kwil. 

We know just how important it is to have a will, and how overwhelming the thought of doing it can be. We have teamed up with Kwil to give you the opportunity to fortify your families future, whilst also supporting the Hospice. 

Kwil will donate 50% of each sale made back to the Hospice, so you can tick something off the to-do list and also make a gift to sustain Hospice care for the future. 

Get started

After you have provided for your family and friends, please consider leaving a gift to The Hospice of St Francis. Click here to visit our Legacies page for more information.

 While there is no obligation to do so, your legacy gift would mean that we can offer care and support to patients and families in our community for years to come.

To find out more about leaving a gift in your Will for the Hospice, please email: legacy@stfrancis.org.uk or call 01442 869555 for an informal conversation.
