We spend our lives working hard to care for our families, and by making a Will you are ensuring that your care will continue when you are no longer with them.
And if you do it in our Wills Month it will help us care for our patients and their loved ones too.
If you have been putting off making a Will, take advantage of our Will Months when local solicitors will not charge a fee for a simple Will, asking for a donation to Willow Wood instead.
We have two every year, in April and November. This will give you time to take stock of your possessions and decide how they should be shared with loved ones.
Why Should I Make a Will?
You may have a house or flat, a car, shares , savings plus, of course, your personal possessions. All of these are known as your estate.
By making a Will you are ensuring that when you die your estate is shared according to your wishes.
If you don't have a Will then your estate will be divided according to pre-set rules. Your partner, whether you are married, in a civil partnership or living together and your children and step-children may not automatically inherit.
How Does Will Month Work?
During April and November we are working with local solicitors and will-makers. Instead of a fee they will ask that you make a donation to Willow Wood.
For a simple single Will, there is a suggested donation of £80 or £160 for a pair of mirror Wills.
Of course, if your needs are more complex there may be an additional charge, however, the solicitor will be happy to discuss this with you.
You don't need to have had any relationship with Willow Wood to take advantage of our Will Month. And we don't expect you to leave us a gift. However, if you wish to support our care in this way we would be very grateful.
