Make a Will with 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.

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 helpline 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 their fee back to St Gemma’s Hospice.

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

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.
