Your community, your charity, your legacy.
Do you need to make a will or do you need to make updates to yours? If over 55, you can make a difference to many families in Somerset by making or updating your basic single or mirror will for FREE this March. If you are not over 55 but your partner is then you can still take part.
Solicitors from across Somerset have chosen to support the St Margaret's Hospice Care Free Will Month. They are all registered with the Law Society of England and Wales and are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
You will no doubt wish, first of all, to provide for those closest to you in your will. But many people also choose to support the causes that are important to them so that the impact of their will reaches even further.
Your solicitor will ask if you would like to leave a gift in your will to charity as part of your appointment. This can be any charity that is close to your heart.
We understand this is a big personal decision, so there is not obligation to remember St Margaret's in your will or give us a donation. But by choosing to leave a gift in your will to us, you'll touch the lives of families across Somerset who need to access hospice care and support, ensuring there is somewhere for them to turn when they need it. One in three of our patients are cared for thanks to gifts in wills and your gift will help families across Somerset make every day count for years to come.
At St Margaret’s we have no legal expertise and cannot give legal advice, so we always advise that that you consult a solicitor to ensure your will is valid and covers all legal formalities.
Step 1: Look through the list of solicitors below and decide which one you'd like to contact.
Step 2: Call the solicitor directly during March and say you would like to take part in the St Margaret's Free Will Month.
Step 3: Arrange an appointment with the solicitor - this does not have to take place in March but it must be booked in March.
Step 4: At your appointment the solicitor will ask you questions about your wishes and what you'd like to include in your will. They will ask you if you would like to leave a gift in your will to charity.
Step 5: Your solicitor will ask if you are happy to share your contact details with St Margaret's to receive updates about our work. You can also choose to inform us if you have left a gift in your will to St Margaret's.
Step 6: If you have given us permission to contact you we will send you a thank you letter and if you have have decided to pledge a gift to us in your will we will also send you an exclusive Pledger Sunflower Pin Badge.
Our annual campaign is extremely popular and there are only a limited number of appointment so please contact your preferred solicitor as early as possible to secure yours.
