Make a Will Month 2022
For more information call us on 01242 535922
During April, participating solicitors will waive their fees for writing a will in lieu of a donation to Cobalt.
The minimum donation for a basic single will is £150 and for a pair of basic mirror wills it is just £200 – this is a fraction of what you would typically pay for this service.
The scheme is designed around writing or updating a straightforward will. If you think your will might be more complicated, please discuss this with the solicitor in advance of your appointment to check if there will be any further cost implications. By using Cobalt’s Make a Will Month scheme, your donation will help us to continue our pioneering cancer and dementia diagnosis and research work.
When planning your new will, once you have looked after your loved ones, please do consider including a gift to Cobalt - even a small percentage of your estate could help to make a big difference for future generations.
If you would like more information on the scheme or if you are considering including a gift to Cobalt in your will, please call 01242 535922 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year all money raised through the scheme will go towards our new PET/CT scanner appeal.

Why making a will is so important - Willans LLP
Willans LLP explains the benefits of making a will and keeping it up to date.
Simon Cook, Head of wills, trusts and probate team, Willans LLP solicitors
“We are delighted to be supporting Cobalt for the tenth year with their Make a Will campaign, particularly during our firm’s 75th year. Many people are reluctant to make a will. We understand it can be an uncomfortable thing to think about but the truth is, not having a will can cause real deprivation, delay and distress for your loved ones when you pass away. Your will covers all of your estate; this doesn’t just mean things like property but also bank accounts, investments, business interests and personal belongings. Often it is the smaller items that hold the most sentimental value to those left behind. We recommend people, no matter what age or stage of life, complete a will to safeguard for the future. Having it drawn up by qualified professionals will ensure that your will is valid and reflective of your wishes.”
