Throughout February 2019, several local solicitors are once again kindly giving you the opportunity to save money by having your Will written in exchange for a donation to Barnsley Hospice.
Why should I have my Will written in February?
Participating in our Make a Will Month enables you to enjoy great value for money whilst supporting patient care. It sounds too good to be true, but there really are no catches!
Making a Will and letting your family and friends know your wishes is vitally important and can be more affordable and straightforward than you think.
If you already have a Will, you may need to think about making an amendment (known as a ‘codicil’) to reflect the changes in your life.
Chris Miller took part in Make a Will Month in 2018: "As a former volunteer I’ve seen the work of the Hospice first-hand so I jumped at the opportunity to help such a worthwhile cause. The process of making a Will couldn’t have been simpler. Make it your number one priority in February – I’m glad I did!"
How much will it cost?
The solicitors taking part in Make a Will Month are giving their services for free. Instead of charging you, they will ask you to make a donation to Barnsley Hospice, which they will take during your appointment and pass it on to us.
Our suggested minimum donations are £90 for a single Will, £175 for a pair of Mirror Wills and £60 for a codicil. These minimum donations represent a significant average saving of £60*.
How do I get involved?
Taking part in Make a Will Month is easy.
1. Choose a solicitor from the list below
2. Make your appointment directly with them (numbers will be limited, so book quickly!)
3. Make your donation during your appointment. The solicitor will then pass this onto the Hospice.
You do not have to leave us a gift in your Will to benefit from these savings. Your donation to the Hospice instead of a fee will still help us care for patients and families in Barnsley.
However, we would be extremely grateful if you would consider remembering the Hospice in your Will.

*Average saving is £60 for a single Will or pair of Mirror Wills. Savings are based on a survey of 11 Barnsley solicitors in November 2018. Please note that if your Will is deemed ‘complex’ or involves tax or other specialist legal advice, a fee for any additional work will be agreed in advance.
