How do I make a will?
Having an up-to-date Will prepared by a solicitor is the best way to ensure that your future wishes will be carried out. It is also the perfect way to leave something to help the charity continue their vital work for generations to come.
You can make or amend free wills face-to-face with the National Free Wills Network. The National Free Wills Network have teamed up with local solicitors across the UK and some of your favourite charities to make it easy to leave a gift in your Will.
