National Make a Will Month in March is the perfect time to remember to write or update your Will to ensure your final wishes are met.

Julie Walker, Treetops Legacy and In Memoriam Relationships Manager, explains how important it is to have a Will:
Making a Will is a way of ensuring your loved ones are taken care of in the future and that your estate and possessions can be distributed as you wish. It can give peace of mind and security, not just for you, but for those you love.

When to make or update a Will

Significant life changes such as moving house, getting married, or welcoming a new addition to the family, are also a good time to consider making or updating your Will.
Treetops offers a range of support including free Wills Clinics.  A list of local solicitors who offer preferential rates for Treetops supporters is also available on request.

The importance of Gifts in Wills

“After looking after your loved ones, it would be wonderful if you would consider leaving Treetops a gift in your Will,” Julie continues.
Up to two in five of our Hospice at Home patients are cared for through a gift left to us in a Will. It’s a way of helping us to care for local people and their loved ones for years to come.

“If you have already been kind enough to remember Treetops in your Will, please do let us know.  Telling us about your gift now helps us plan for the future.  We’d also love to say thank you by sending you a special lapel pin and inviting you to events from time to time.”
