Make your Will Month – May 2023

Make a difference in our Make your Will Month 

Book an appointment to make or update your Will in May. You’ll be making sure your loved ones are taken care of when you’re no longer here and also helping to support local people who need hospice care. We have partnered with 9 solicitors across Herts and Bucks who have generously waived their basic Will-writing fees - instead, they ask for a donation to Rennie Grove or Peace Hospice Care.  

Did you know that around  6 people in every 10 die without a Will?

Don’t let that be you – book an appointment to make or update your Will this May.

Find out why making your Will matters…

Having an up-to-date Will is vital for several reasons. If you pass away without one, you won’t have any control over who receives your assets or who cares for your dependents. Additionally, putting all your wishes in writing can offer significant peace of mind, and most importantly, a Will ensures that your loved ones will be cared for when you’re no longer here to do so.

During Make Your Will Month in May, we partner with local solicitors to offer you the chance to make a difference. When you book an appointment in May, to make or update your Will, participating solicitors waive their basic Will-writing fees. And instead of paying them, they ask you to donate to Rennie Grove or Peace Hospice Care.  

We suggest £175 for an individual Will, or £275 for a pair of mirror Wills 

If your circumstances are more complicated, requiring something more detailed than a basic Will, your solicitor will advise. You can discuss what you want with the experts and agree any additional fees 

We have 9 solicitors across Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire who have kindly donated their time to Make Your Will Month – click here to view the full list and get in contact

We’re so grateful to all our Make Your Will Month participating solicitors for their continued support. As you can imagine, they can only offer a limited number of appointments, so do book promptly! You can contact them any time from April onwards to book your May appointment.   

Please note – Taylor Walton will open their bookings from 1st May.

First, choose the solicitor you’d like to use from our list of participating solicitors. Then, when you get in touch, remember to quote Make Your Will Month for Rennie Grove or Peace Hospice Care.” Your solicitor will arrange for you to make your donation at your appointment.  

Although the two charities are merging while we fine tune all the behind-the-scenes processes, we’re asking for donations to Rennie Grove or Peace Hospice Care for Make your Will Month 2023. 

It’s completely your choice as to whether you wish to leave a gift. If, once you’ve taken care of your loved ones, you feel able to leave a gift to Rennie Grove or Peace Hospice Care, that would be amazing. Your solicitor can advise you about this, and you can speak to our Gifts in Wills team too. Gifts in Wills can make a huge difference to local families for generations to come. Charitable gifts in Wills can also help reduce the amount of inheritance tax you may have to pay.
