Have you made your Will? Make or update your Will during November 2020 and support the RUH Bath

If you’ve put off writing or updating your Will,  our annual fundraising initiative, RUH Will Month offers you the opportunity to use the professional Will writing services of local solicitors across the RUH Catchment area at a reduced cost, which will then be donated by the solicitors to our charity for the benefit of patients at the Royal United Hospital.

Why is it important to make a Will?

Making a Will is such an important thing to do, yet many of us don’t want to think about it, or are worried about the cost, even though it can leave behind big problems. While thinking, talking and planning for death may feel uncomfortable, you may need to consider how the situation would be if you died or became incapacitated – through illness, accident, old age or emergency. Whatever your age, if you have assets, e.g. a house, savings, a business, family, causes you care about or specific funeral plans, please consider making a Will.

To help you, our participating solicitors will prepare and draw up a standard Will at a reduced fee in support of the Royal United Hospitals.

See the full list of participating solicitors

You will be asked to make a payment of £125 for a single standard Will or £175 for a mirror Will.
