Making a Will is one of the most important things anyone can do, to ensure our final wishes are met. However, a large proportion of people don’t ever get around to doing one.
Residents of the UK, that are over 55, can make sure their wishes are respected by taking up the opportunity to have their Will drawn up for free by a solicitor during October Free Wills Month. The Solicitor will conduct an interview to make sure everything is covered, but it's not a bad idea to prepare in advance.
Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity is one of ten major charities behind the initiative for people aged 55 and over to have simple Wills written or updated this October.
Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust is the country’s leading centre for treating sick children, with the widest range of specialists under one roof. With the UCL Institute of Child Health, they are the largest centre for paediatric research outside the US and play a key role in training children’s health specialists for the future.
The Great Ormond Street Hospital children's charity needs to raise £50 million every year to help rebuild and refurbish the hospital, buy vital equipment and fund pioneering research.
In exchange for funding the service, the charity hopes that users will consider leaving a legacy gift in their will to Great Ormond Street Hospital. By doing so, this will help support research and development into breakthrough treatments and cures for many thousands of sick children now and in the years to come.
