Making a Will

Making a will can offer peace of mind, bring any outstanding affairs into order, offer potential inheritance tax benefits and provide a vital source of income from any legacies left to charity.

During April, partner solicitors are donating their expertise and time to Cobalt. They will write or update a straightforward Will for you, in return for a voluntary donation to Cobalt. The suggested donation to Cobalt is £100 for a single Will, £150 for mirror Wills.

Simon Cook, Partner and Head of the Wills, probate and trusts team at Willans LLP said 'Making a Will is so important as it provides peace of mind that your estate will be distributed as you wish. Although there is absolutely no requirement to do so, you may choose to leave a gift to charity which can help reduce inheritance tax on your estate'.

Over the last six years Make a Will month has raised over £77,000 in donations from solicitor's waiving their fee. Legacies have enabled Cobalt to fund some life changing services and equipment over the years including:

  • funding for a new Teenage and Young Adult Cancer nurse
  • provision of training and education for the public and health care professionals
  • a cutting edge PET/CT scanner for the Cobalt Imaging Centre, providing faster, safer and clearer scans for a patients
  • vital cancer and dementia research programmes

Thank you for your support. For further information please contact Helen Tomes, 01242 535922
