Free Wills Network

Free Wills Network is a campaign which offers people aged 55 and over the opportunity to have a simple will written or updated free of charge by one of the participating solicitors.

Having your Will written by a solicitor gives you the opportunity to influence the world you’ll leave behind by remembering the causes that matter to you. You can choose to remember causes and organisations that reflect your interests, your passions, your beliefs and what you stand for.

If you decide to take part in the campaign, there is no obligation to include a gift to Prostate Cancer UK in your Will. We would be extremely grateful, however, if you, after taking care of your loved ones, could consider remembering us in this way. 

How to use our Free Will service

If you decide to take part, there is no obligation to include a gift to Prostate Cancer UK in your Will. We would be extremely grateful, however, if you, after taking care of your loved ones, could consider remembering us in this way. We are dedicated to fighting prostate cancer through funding research, supporting men and raising awareness, and we rely entirely on donations from our supporters in order to fund this work. Gifts in Wills play a huge part of that support.

Please contact us today to provide your name and postal address and have your will written for free, we will then have your pack sent out to you as soon as possible with a list of participating solicitors in your area.

During March and October each year we also take part in the Free Wills Month campaigns in which we offer our Free Will Scheme within specific areas across the UK.

 

Together, we can make a lasting impact

After Stephen died I decided to remake my Will and leave a gift to prostate Cancer UK, so future generations of men don't have to suffer through what Stephen did.

- Robin Legard

 

Stephen and I met in 1987, when he replied to a Lonely Hearts ad I’d put in Time Out magazine. When we met I knew there was something there straight away, it was just instant. I don’t think either Stephen or I had ever discussed prostate cancer. It had never crossed our consciousness. So, it came completely out of the blue when tests revealed he had advanced prostate cancer.
 
Prostate Cancer UK was very dear to Stephen’s heart and he was determined that whatever happened, he was going to go on supporting the charityAnd so, Stephen chose to leave a gift in his Will to Prostate Cancer UK. He felt that, by leaving a gift in his Will, he could keep on contributing to helping to tame prostate cancer, even after his death.

After Stephen died I decided to remake my Will, and leave a gift to Prostate Cancer UK. I know there are developments around better treatments for advanced disease, but it’s a long-term investment. I know a cure is on the horizon, so future generations of men don’t have to suffer through what Stephen did, and can be made possible by leaving a gift to Prostate Cancer UK in your Will.
