Local solicitors are providing their services in return for a donation to the hospice.

During Make a Will Week, local solicitors provide their Will-writing services in return for a donation to Wakefield Hospice. The scheme is an ideal opportunity to have your Will written or updated by a professional. There’s no obligation to leave a gift to the hospice in your Will.

As part of the scheme, firms waive their usual fees and ask people to make a donation instead. This applies to simple Wills – if yours is more complex, there may also be a fee to pay. Your solicitor will be able to advise you of this.
All the solicitors provide their time and expertise at no cost to Wakefield Hospice. Please consider the value of your solicitor’s time when you decide how much to donate. We suggest a donation of at least £100 for a basic single Will or £150 for a basic mirror Will. You will be asked to make your donation when you sign your Will. You can donate online via the hospice's website, or over the phone by calling the hospice's fundraising team, or by post by sending a cheque to the hospice. 
If you'd like to receive information about the scheme please contact us and we will send you all the details when our next dates are announced. Each solicitor will be providing a limited number of places, so once the scheme is launched please book early to avoid disappointment. Appointments will be available to book from four weeks before the scheme takes place. 
All the firms offer their services in return for a donation for basic Wills. If your Will is more complex, there may also be a fee to pay the solicitor. Please discuss this with your chosen solicitor when you make your appointment.

If you’d like to include a gift to Wakefield Hospice 

After providing for their loved ones, many people choose to leave a small gift to their favourite charity. By remembering Wakefield Hospice in your Will, you can support local families facing serious illness. Whether it’s a sum of money, a specific item or a share of your property, any gift is very deeply appreciated. 
There’s no obligation to include a gift to the Hospice and you don’t need to tell us your intentions. If you’d like to remember us, we will be very grateful.
