Free Wills Month

10th April 2024

This April is Free Wills Month and we’re partnering with Bequeathed and Irwin Mitchell, to provide a free and easy way for you to write a will and leave a gift to help support people whose lives have been impacted by meningitis.

Creating a will is a big decision, but it is the only way to ensure your wishes are carried out after death.

We’ve teamed up with trusted online partners Bequeathed, a free online will-writing service, and Irwin Mitchell, a leading law firm and our long-standing supporter, to provide a quick, easy and free way for you to leave your own special legacy to the world.

If your dream, like ours, is to make meningitis a disease of the past and you’d like to be part of our future as we work towards this, you can leave a gift in your will to Meningitis Now, and Free Wills Month is the perfect time to do it.

With the help of our will writing partners you can make a start on your will immediately. Just visit our website any time that suits you and complete our easy-to-use form.

Your gift could support research that finds new and improves existing vaccines to save lives and prevent disability. It could help give people the knowledge and confidence to recognise the signs and symptoms of meningitis and take fast action, saving lives through awareness and education.

Gifts in Wills from our supporters is an incredible way to help fulfil our vision of a future where no-one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

Jo Wilson, our Legacies Officer, said: “We are incredibly grateful for any gift whether big or small. Knowing that supporters have been kind enough to remember us in their wills helps us ensure we will always be here for those who need us.

“We recognise that it’s important to look after your family and friends first and foremost in your will. And we know that including a charity in it is a big decision. Our professional and trusted partners can make sure you get it right.”
