Gifts in Wills

A hand writing the words My Last Will with a foutnain pen back ink on white paper.

Making a will is perhaps one of the most important things you will ever do.

It is the only way to be sure that your family, friends, favourite charities and others are provided for as you wish after your death.

A gift to Sight Support HEY in your will is an incredible way to support visually impaired people and make a lasting difference to the future of blind and partially sighted people in Hull and East Yorkshire. More than a quarter of our support services are only possible due to the kindness of people leaving gifts to us in their wills.

Free Will Writing Service

Sight Support has partnered with Bequeathed to offer an accessible and inclusive service where every supporters can make a free Will For Good. Just follow these simple steps which will take less than an hour of your time:

1. Take our online will interview in as little as 20 minutes. Our system creates your will from the answers you give, and we transfer it to one of our partner legal firms.

2. Have a 30-minute telephone or video appointment with a legal professional. They will discuss your situation and your wishes and confirm the will caters for your needs.

3. Receive your free will in the post, sign it and have it witnessed. You can then return a copy to the legal firm who will check it has been executed correctly and securely store it for you, also at no cost.

Having an up to date will is the only way to make sure the people and causes you care about are looked after when you’re gone.

There is no obligation to include a gift to Sight Support HEY in your will when using this service, but we would of course be very grateful if you would consider supporting us in this way.

Seeking further advice

If at any point in the process you need additional support or find that your estate and wishes are more complex than you anticipated, we can also offer signposting to local solicitors who can offer advice by telephone or in person once you have agreed a fee.

Using Bequeathed’s will-writing service is free, but if you seek additional advice from a local solicitor you may need to pay a fee.
