February is Make a Will Month
for Barnsley Hospice

Save money, write your Will and support us!

Throughout February 2021, several local solicitors are kindly giving you the opportunity to save money by having your Will written in exchange for a donation to Barnsley Hospice.

Participating in Make a Will Month enables you to enjoy great value for money whilst supporting patient care at the Hospice. It sounds too good to be true, but there really are no catches!

Bookings for appointments in February for Make a Will Month are being taken from 4 January 2021 onwards.  The solicitors listed below will discuss how your appointment might safely take place - telephone or video call (at present.)

How much will it cost?

The participating solicitors generously give their services for free. Instead of charging you, they ask you to make a donation to Barnsley Hospice.

Our suggested minimum donations are:
  • £90 for a single Will
  • £175 for a pair of Mirror Wills

These minimum donations represent a significant average saving of almost £70*

You do not have to leave the Hospice a gift in your Will to benefit from these savings. Your donation to the Hospice instead of a fee will still help us to care for patients and families in Barnsley. However, we would be extremely grateful if you could consider remembering the Hospice in your Will.

NB Solicitors will advise you on how to make your donation, in lieu of a fee, direct to the hospice. If using the donation page on our website, please tell us the name of the solicitors' firm you went to in our information box. Thank you.

Make a Will and make sure your wishes are carried out...

Life can change quickly and it is important to make a Will if your circumstances change, for example:
• Becoming a grandparent
• Getting married, divorced or co-habiting
• Having a baby
• Buying a house
• Welcoming stepchildren

Making a Will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes are carried out and your loved ones are provided for after your death. It can be much more affordable and straightforward than you think.

Kay Bennett took part in
Make a Will Month last year

'When we realised that some Barnsley solicitors were participating in the hospice's Make a Will Month, it was just the nudge we needed to get on with updating our will.

It's so important to have a will to ensure that your wishes are carried out and it also makes it so much easier for your family.

I have a long association with the hospice and support them when I can.  It has been such a difficult year for fundraising, so I would urge everyone to make their will with a solicitor taking part in the scheme.  I know that all donations will go direct to patient care and support for families.'

*Average saving is almost £70 for a single Will or a pair of Mirror Wills.  Savings are based on a survey of 12 Barnsley solicitors in December 2020.

Please note that if your Will is deemed 'complex' or involves tax or other specialist advice, a fee for any additional work will be agreed in advance with the solicitor.
