How to Write Your Will

Here are 3 things to consider when writing your will: 

1.  Choosing a solicitor

We recommend using the following will-writing service providers as they have partnered with a number of high-profile charities: Farewill and Irwin Mitchell.

2.    Choosing an executor

An executor is a person who carries out the wishes expressed in your will for you. Your executor will be named in your will, and you can either choose to appoint a solicitor to execute your will at a cost, or appoint a trusted friend or family member.

It is important that you choose your executor carefully because this person will have a lot of responsibility to ensure that your estate is sorted out properly.

3.    Legacy gift wording

In as little as one sentence, you can make a gift to us in your will. You only need our charity name, number, address and the type of gift you would like to make. Please ask your solicitor to use the details below:

HOPE worldwide UK, registered charity number 1045930, of 360 City Road, London,  EC1V 2PY.

What is a will and why should you write one? 

Your will is a legal document that determines what will happen to your estate after you pass away. If you want to ensure that your estate goes to the people and causes you care about, it is important that you write a will.

Leaving a legacy to HOPE worldwide UK

By including a gift to HOPE worldwide UK in your will, you will leave a lasting legacy of hope which will impact the lives of people both here in the UK and across the world.
