Thank you to our partners

Thank you so much to all our participating law firms who have made our Make A Will Month 2021 possible

What is Make a Will Month?

Local law firms are offering a FREE and exclusive Will writing scheme in partnership with Acorns Children’s Hospice. Your Will isn’t just about leaving personal belongings. It’s also the best way to plan for the future and ensure your wishes are known, giving you and your loved one’s peace of mind and security.

It’s FREE to take part in Acorns Make a Will Month and there is no obligation to leave a gift to Acorns in your Will, although a gift – however big or small – will help us continue to provide vital children’s hospice care and create precious memories for families to treasure for years to come.

Why should I write a Will?

Although it’s not an easy subject to talk about, making a Will has many benefits, but above all it puts you in control and ensures that your wishes are known and respected.

Here are just some of reasons why you should write a Will:

  • To make sure your loved ones, including children, are looked after when you’re gone
  • Whether big or small, valuable or sentimental, a Will ensures that your belongings go to the right place
  • To minimise family disputes
  • Leave gifts to family, friends and charity
  • For unmarried couples, making a Will is particularly important if you wish to leave a legacy for your partner
