Making a Will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes are carried out and your loved ones are provided for after your death.
It's important to make a Will if your circumstances change, for instance:
- There's a new baby in the family
- You buy or sell a house
- You marry, divorce or cohabit
- Your financial situation alters
- Or even if you buy a new pet!
Why should I make my Will in St Luke’s Will Month?
Quite simply, you’ll be getting great value for money, at the same time as supporting our patients and their families. Will Month is a partnership between St Luke’s and local solicitors across the city. A participating solicitor will draw up a basic Will for you, and invite you to make a donation.
You may wish to consider leaving a gift to St Luke’s no matter how big or small – although this is not a condition of the scheme. Ask your solicitor for more details.
* Please note that your solicitor will advise you that any
complex instructions may incur an additional fee.
What do I do next?

– be sure to book yours ASAP to avoid disappointment
St Luke’s is an independent charity, and all our care is free of charge to people over 18 years old from across the city, with all kinds of terminal
Each year, we help around 1,600 patients – some of them come to the hospice but many more are looked after at home by our community nursing team.
It’s not just patients that we help either – we extend support, counselling and practical help to family members too, so that each year, our work touches the lives of around 5,000 people.
We are not part of the NHS and rely on our generous supporters to keep our work going. In fact, of the £8.7 million it takes to deliver our services each year, £6.1 million of that has to come from
donations – just like yours.
