Make a Will Month

September 2023

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.
