“We are very happy to be supporting Barnsley Hospice’s Make a Will Month. Everyone who makes a will through this initiative can ensure the people they wish to benefit from their assets do so after their death, whilst also supporting the hospice which provides exceptional care to the people who need it most in our local area.”

Jessica Haigh, Ison Harrison solicitors

“I’d got to a stage in life where I’d realised that I needed to make a will so it was really a case of getting round to it, while supporting the hospice at the same time.  It was a win-win situation – my will was written for a lesser amount than I would usually have paid a solicitor and I still felt able to give the hospice a sizable donation.”

Alan Friggens

“The hospice’s Make a Will Month 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.”

Kay Bennett

“Writing our will in the Barnsley Hospice Make a Will Month campaign allows us to look after our own family, whilst supporting others after we are gone.”

Fred and Mary Robertson

What is Make a Will Month?

Barnsley Hospice’s Make a Will Month runs each year. The idea behind the fundraiser is that you can get your Will written by local solicitors throughout February in exchange for a donation to support the specialist palliative care we provide.

How do I get involved?

Taking part in Make a Will Month couldn’t be simpler! Take a look at the list of participating local solicitors below, and contact the firm you would like to book an appointment with. The solicitors will then tell you the best way to conduct your appointment. Once you have had your appointment, you can donate to the hospice below.

For any questions, please contact our Fundraising team at

What do I need to prepare for my appointment?

Your chosen solicitor will let you know of any information you need to gather or consider before your appointment. To help you feel prepared for your Will writing appointment, you can download our free Will Planner here.

How much do I have to donate?

For a simple single Will, we kindly suggest a minimum donation of £90 and £175 for a pair of mirror Wills for a couple. Your solicitor will let you know if your Will is deemed complex, and in this instance, a fee for any additional work will be discussed with you in advance. You can then decide whether you wish to proceed.

Your support when making your donation is greatly appreciated, and we would like to make clear that there is no requirement to leave a further gift to the hospice in your Will. However, we are always extremely grateful for any gift you may choose to leave in your Will, which helps secure our future care.
