Make a Will Month

Three simple steps to help ‘Give back to the future’

The Make a Will scheme gives people over the age of 18 access to independent, expert advice on how to make a basic will – or update an existing one.

The solicitors in the scheme are giving their time and professional expertise free to you, and ask you to consider making a donation. A St Wilfrid’s receipt will be issued for any donation you make.

  1. Contact one of the participating solicitors (names to be confirmed) and book your appointment.
  2. Consider who your beneficiaries will be.
  3. If you need further help or information, contact Rozelyn Bristowe on 01323 434214 or at
