Make a Will Month

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 £100 and for a pair of basic mirror wills it is just £150 – this is a fraction of what you would typically pay for this service.

This year most solicitors are conducting their appointments on a contactless basis (zoom, telephone etc.), anyone who takes part in the scheme will need to follow the specific safe working practices of the law firm that they choose to use.

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 fundraising@cobalthealth.co.uk

Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today - Harrison Clark Rickerbys

Too many of us put off making a will, either because death isn’t something we want to think about, or because we don’t know how best to divide our estate.

Failure to make a will, however, can lead to anxiety and stress, at a time when our loved ones are already grieving.
