How to make a bequest in your will
A bequest in your Will, can leave a tangible legacy for future generations which will enable The Wesley Hospital to continue to meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of our patients.
Although many of us don't like to think about it, we should all have a Will. In the absence of one, your affairs will be handled by a court-appointed administrator, who will have no idea how you wanted your estate to be handled.
Making your Will
Having a Will drawn up is a relatively simple procedure and should include the following steps:
- First, seek expert advice - the safest way to make a will is to use a solicitor
- List your assets
- Decide who you wish to benefit from your estate
- Make sure you are satisfied that the Will reflects your wishes
- Keep your Will in a safe place
- Review your Will regularly.
