Make a Will Month 2021

Make a Will Month – 1st to 31st October 2021

Making a Will is very important as it makes sure the things you leave behind go to the people and causes you care about. During October you’ll be able to update or write a Will with a participating local solicitor who’ll waive their normal fee in return for a donation to Pendleside Hospice.

Making a Will is not something we like to think about but, once it’s done, it gives you peace of mind knowing that your family, friends and causes close to your heart are looked after in the way that you want. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that there has never been a better time to protect the important things. 

This Will Month, why not do something about it? Make or amend a Will and support Pendleside Hospice

Follow these 4 simple steps

Step 1: Choose your solicitor – contact one of our participating solicitors listed below to book your appointment

Step 2: Get everything ready. List your assets (property, possessions and money) and the people and organisations you’d like to remember in your Will.
