Make a Will Month

All throughout June, sees the return of Make a Will Month, where you can make or update your Will with one of our local solicitors for a reduced fee.

If you are interested in making or updating your Will and supporting the Hospice, our 'Make a Will Month' is the time to act!

Tick something off your to do list this June

Throughout June, a number of local solicitors from across the North East offer Wills at a special rate to you and donate the fee back to St Oswald’s.

Whether you are planning to move house, get married, start a new family or simply want to get organised, why not take part this June. If you have already have a Will, but need to make any changes, the Make Will month scheme is open to everyone, and allows you to get a great deal on making or updating your Will, while helping out a local charity.

Thanks to participating solicitors across the region, it costs just £90 for a single will or £125 for a pair and the full fee is then donated straight to St Oswald’s Hospice.

Tracey Wetherill lives in Newcastle and took part in Make a Will Month in 2014:

"I moved in with my partner in 2013, and we both decided to make our Wills through Make a Will Month. The timing seemed perfect – I wanted to get my affairs in order and make sure my assets were protected. Because of a change in my circumstances, it was important for me to make sure that my estate would still be divided between my two daughters.

Hearing about St Oswald’s Make a Will Month was the prompt I needed to make an appointment with a solicitor. It’s good to know that the fee I paid for the service was donated back to the Hospice, meaning I can give a gift at no extra cost! I used McKeag & Co Solicitors in Gosforth and the process was quick and straightforward. Getting my Will sorted was one more job off my list and really gave me peace of mind."

I’ve been a supporter of St Oswald’s Hospice since it opened in 1986. I have pledged to support the future of the hospice by leaving a legacy in my will, as I take comfort from the idea that I can help someone who is in need of St Oswald’s care, even after I have gone.

I support St Oswald’s in memory of my mother, who died of breast cancer at fifty-four. My husband also left a legacy to the Hospice when he died in 2013 and I am proud his gift will have made a difference to the wellbeing of the patients.

Leaving a legacy in your will

While there is no obligation to include a gift to St Oswald's in your will, we would be very grateful if you were able to do so.
