  • The supporter chooses a solicitor from the list which is the most convenient for them to use
  • The supporter telephones their chosen solicitor to make an appointment for Make a Will Month in June.
  • At the appointment, the solicitor takes their instructions to write their will.
  • The supporter will return to the solicitor to read through and sign their will.
  • The fee for making the will is paid to the solicitor who will then donate the full cost back to the hospice
