Making a will is the most important thing you can do to protect your loved ones.

About the event

We are delighted to announce that Make A Will Month has been extended top include November.

Thanks to four local solicitors, you can make your will while supporting Alice House Hospice.

A will is such an important thing to have in place to ensure that you have control over what will happen to your money, your home and your belongings when you die. Having a will also helps to ensure your loved ones are looked after.

The fee during Make a Will Month is £180 for a single will or £300 for a double will and your solicitor will make sure that every penny you give will come straight to Alice House Hospice.

Wills must be simple straightforward wills, anything extra will be chargeable from your solicitor.

Whether you are planning to move house, get married, start a new family or simply want to get organised, why not make October the month you get organised?

Step 3 – Consider your wishes

To maximise the time you have with your solicitor it would be useful for you to consider your wishes and make a note of your assets and beneficiaries.

While there is no obligation to include a gift in your will to Alice House Hospice, this might be something you would like to consider. Leaving a legacy to Alice House is one of the best ways of making sure Hospice care will be around for our children and our children’s children.

Step 4 – Attend your appointment

Your solicitor will discuss your wishes with you and draft your will. Please complete the donation/gift aid form during your appointment and make the donation to Alice House via your solicitor.
