Write your will for free during July

July 2020


At a time when having our affairs in order is of particular concern for us all, one local charity has teamed up with solicitors and online providers to offer a free wills service throughout July.

Prospect Hospice is providing supporters with a quick and easy approach to will writing but with all of the security of an appointment in person.

Amy Francombe, events and community manager at Prospect Hospice, said: “We’ve had a lot of support from local people during the Covid-19 pandemic and we think it’s important that we’re able to give something back to those who are ensuring the hospice is able to continuing to care for those who need us right now. We know many people are taking this time to get their affairs in order so we’ve been working with local solicitors and online will providers to put together a free wills service to help people at this time. The best part is that, to take advantage of this offer, people don’t even have to leave their home.”

Those opting to write their will online will be guided through a form to accurately document your wishes. Alternatively, you can make your will over the phone with a local solicitor and this option is recommended should you have any questions to ask before you go ahead.

“As a local independent charity, we rely on nearly three quarters of our income coming from the local community we care for,” added Ms Francombe. “On average, legacy donations make up around 15% of the hospice’s income and a gift of just 1% in someone’s will could go on to ensure comfort and care for someone at the end of their life as well as support for their family.”

The hospice has a limited number of free wills available and these will offered on a first come first served basis to supporters.
