St Gemma’s Hospice Make a Will Month

Make a Will Month takes place each October and gives you the opportunity to have your Will written in exchange for making a donation towards patient care at St Gemma’s Hospice.

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.

Moving House?
Having a Baby?
Getting Married?
Becoming Grandparents?

Make a Will Month

Throughout October, St Gemma’s Hospice works with solicitors across Leeds, who all kindly agree to waive their fees for writing your Will, in exchange for you making a donation to St Gemma’s Hospice. St Gemma’s Make a Will Month is a fantastic opportunity to make your Will whilst also supporting patient care at St Gemma’s Hospice with your donation.

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.
