Free Wills Month is back in October 2020!

Are you aged 55 and over? Need to write or update an existing simple Will? If the answer to those questions is yes then you may be interested in taking part in the upcoming Free Wills Month.

What is Free Wills Month?

The campaign, which runs twice a year, aims to:

  • Raise awareness about the need for Wills
  • Help those who can’t afford a Will
  • Promote leaving gifts to charity

The next month-long event starts on 1 October. It offers those aged 55 and over the opportunity to have their simple Wills written or updated free of charge by using a participating solicitor across England, Northern Ireland and Wales. 

Free Wills Month allows you to provide for family and friends with the added benefit of leaving a gift to your chosen charity too. The initiative seeks to draw together a group of well-respected charities who raise money for a variety of causes.

Having a current Will written by a solicitor will ensure your wishes are respected and could help negate difficult decisions and legal complications for your loved ones. 

How to register

Naturally, the event itself is very popular and is often oversubscribed. Visit the Free Wills Month website if you would like to find out more information or to register your interest to gain access to participating law firms.

If this has made you think about your own arrangements or you would like to speak to a Solicitor regarding your Will, please do get in touch with us for a referral to a friendly, local solicitor.
