Make a Will with St Gemma’s Hospice

Have your Will written online and support patient care.

Having your Will written all year round is now possible, as we have partnered with online Will providers, Kwil.

We know not everyone will be able to wait for St Gemma’s next Make a Will Month in October 2021 (you can find more details about this below). As it is so important to have a Will, we want to offer this online service to make it quick and simple for you to have your Will written at any time of the year.

Making your Will online with Kwil takes around 15-30 minutes and there is a dedicated help line and online support available if you need any guidance.

For £90 for a single Will and £120 for a couples Will, you can create your own legally binding will online today. Kwil will donate 50% of the fee you pay to them, back to St Gemma’s Hospice.

Have your Will written today and support patients and families all year round.

Why make a Will?

We spend our lives working to provide for ourselves and our loved ones. As life changes around you, it is a good time to consider making your Will. Making your Will means you can be certain that your wishes are followed after your death.

Making a Will is often seen as a very sensitive subject, one which many people prefer to put off until a later date. However, a professionally written Will can make life much easier for our loved ones when the time comes.

A Will is the only way to make sure your money, property, possessions and investments (known as your estate) go to the people and causes that you care about.

Gifts in Wills to St Gemma’s Hospice

The cost of caring for one in five of our patients is covered by gifts left in Wills. There is no obligation as part of this scheme to leave a gift to St Gemma’s Hospice in your Will. However, once you have provided for your loved ones, any gift you leave to St Gemma’s Hospice – no matter what size – will help to ensure patients and their families are supported by St Gemma’s for years to come.

“We really wanted to give something back to say thank you.”

“Calvin and I talked about leaving some money to St Gemma’s in his Will. He very much wanted to and I wanted him to. It’s amazing that all of the support, incredible help and care is provided for free. We really wanted to give something back to say thank you, to enable St Gemma’s to continue doing the amazing work that they do and to acknowledge the importance of St Gemma’s in those final years of Calvin’s life.”

Make a Will Month

What is Make a Will Month?

St Gemma’s Make a Will Month is an opportunity to have your Will written by a local solicitor in Leeds or online with Kwil, in exchange for you making a donation to St Gemma’s Hospice.

Our next Make a Will Month will be in October 2021. During Make a Will Month many local solicitors across Leeds kindly give up their time to write your Will free of charge, in exchange for you making a donation to the Hospice.

March 2021’s Make a Will Month has finished now, and we would like to thank all of the solicitors who took part for their incredible support:

If you would like to register your interest for our next Make a Will Month, please contact Laura on 0113 306 9170 or email laurah@st-gemma.co.uk.

“We have both lost a parent to cancer and appreciate that your life can change quite drastically in a very short period of time.”

“We have contemplated making a Will for quite a while and like everyone else we have busy family/work lifestyle so never got round to doing it. We have both lost a parent to cancer and appreciate that your life can change quite drastically in a very short period of time. When we received the St Gemma’s Newsletter and saw ‘Make a Will Month’ advertised, we thought what better way to make a Will, whilst also benefiting the amazing work that St Gemma’s Hospice does. It is important to us to ensure, in the event of either or both of us passing away, that our wishes are carried out. We would encourage anyone who hasn’t made a Will to do the same.”
