Have you made a will or do you need to make updates to yours? Free Will Fortnight is an opportunity for our supporters aged 55 or over to visit participating local solicitors across Somerset to write or update their basic wills.

You can make or update your will for FREE. Simply book your appointment between 5th – 16th March 2018.

Life can change very quickly and it’s worth keeping your will updated to reflect the important changes as they happen. So if you’ve already written a will but want to update it, this can be done free of charge too.

There’s no obligation to remember St. Margaret’s Hospice in your will, but by choosing to leave a legacy you would be helping to care for people in Somerset with a life-limiting illness. One in five of our patients are cared for thanks to gifts in wills. 

  • Simply find your nearest participating solicitor from the list below. Please ensure you mention St. Margaret’s Hospice Free Will Fortnight when booking your appointment.

  • Remember appointments may be limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. This offer is available to anyone aged 55 or over. For couples, just one of you needs to be 55 or over.

  • All participating solicitors are registered with the Law Society of England and Wales and regulated by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority.  The Free Will Fortnight offer covers simple wills, but if you would like extra advice, you can pay the solicitor directly for this.
