Free Wills Month October 2019

How does it work?

Free Wills Month offers people aged 55 and over the opportunity to have a simple* Will written or updated free of charge.

The scheme uses local solicitors in selected areas around the UK, and although there’s no obligation to leave a gift to Guide Dogs in your Will, we hope people might consider helping in this special way.

What can a gift in your Will do for Guide Dogs?

Two out of three guide dogs are only made possible thanks to gifts left in Wills. This vital income helps to provide guide dogs of the future enabling people with sight loss to lead full and rewarding lives.

How do you take part?

Simply contact a local participating solicitor between 1 and 31 October 2019. As long as you’ve contacted your chosen solicitor during that period, the actual appointment itself can take place at a later date.

From the 1 October, go to www.freewillsmonth.org.uk for details of participating solicitors nearest to you or call 0345 686 4309.

*Please be aware that the definition of a ‘simple’ Will is at the discretion of the drafting solicitor.

I thought it may be a complicated process but it was very easy and we had a choice of local solicitors to contact at our convenience. I was so impressed with this service that I would recommend it to anyone.”

Sally and Yoko

Once I got my guide dog everything changed and began to click into place. I went from relying on others to get around to wanting to do everything myself, and I can with my guide dog Yoko by my side. Yoko makes me feel safe and has given me the confidence to walk with my head held high.

Yoko is the perfect dog. She’s so professional when we are out. I don’t even have to worry about going for a day out in London, I know she’ll be able to get me through the crowds. I’ve got complete trust in her. Being partnered with Yoko has changed my life. I am independent and don’t let my sight loss stop me from living my life.”

Sally, guide dog owner

Everything had to change when I lost my sight, it affected my whole family. I felt so vulnerable and had to rely heavily on others.
