Make a Will Fortnight 2019

9 Sep 2019

9th-20th September 2019

Have you been putting off writing your Will?
If the answer is yes, you aren’t alone. More than 50% of adults in the UK still haven’t got round to it. Making a Will gives you peace of mind that your wishes will be respected, and Make a Will Fortnight gives you the perfect opportunity to prepare it. 

From 9th September to 20th September you can make an appointment to have your Will written by local solicitors*, who are generously waiving their fees. Instead, all we request is that you make a donation to Chailey Heritage Foundation. Appointments are available for single Wills, a pair of mirror Wills or a Codicil.

The following solicitors are kindly participating in our Make a Will Fortnight 2019:

  • Limited appointments are available, so do book early to avoid disappointment! 
  • Attend your appointment, taking your donation by cheque with you, payable to Chailey Heritage Foundation. If you do not have a cheque book, please contact us using the details below, for alternative options.
  • Remember, if you have to cancel or postpone your appointment, make sure you contact the solicitor in advance!

*What if I have a complex Will?
Complex Wills take a lot of a solicitor’s time and skill, and therefore are not included in this offer. Feel free to contact any of the solicitors to enquire about costs.

How much should I donate?
We have suggested the following donation amounts, which we feel reflects the time and skill of the solicitors who participate in Make a Will Fortnight.
£80 to add a Codicil to an existing Will.
£130 to prepare a single Will.
£195 to prepare a pair of mirror Will.

How could my donation make a difference?
£80 could pay for a wheelchair football and pump, so that disabled young people can enjoy the social and competitive aspects of sport.
£130 could pay for a Christmas tree and decorations for our bungalows to create a homely, festive environment for young people who live here.
£195 could fund resources for our school holiday clubs, so that young people can have fun making painting or taking part in treasure hunts during the holidays.
