Will Writing Service

Making a Will is one of those things we tend to put off. It is not something we really want to think about. However, it is important to have a Will to ensure our loved ones are protected, provided for, and save them from additional stress – whatever our financial situation.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation would always recommend that you should consult a solicitor or specialist Estate planner in order to discuss your particular requirements in detail. We understand that for some this may not be possible, whether this is because of time constraints or for cost reasons, that’s why we have partnered with Will-writing specialists to ensure all our supporters can write their Will, without the associated costs.

You can have your appointment face to face, via telephone or on zoom, giving you a great opportunity to receive advice and guidance from estate planning specialists when preparing your Will.

You may be asked if you wish to make a donation to Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation but there is no obligation to do so, although any donation or legacy to enable us to carry on our vital work would be appreciated.

If you are interested in booking an appointment or would like to find our more, please contact one of our free-Will partners using their contact details below.

Those in England and Wales who prefer to do a basic online Will with no advice can do so with Octopus Legacy, who use an online questionnaire to prepare a basic Will that you can then print off and sign (with witnesses). To get started with your free online Will, please click here to register with Octopus Legacy (England and Wales).

If you already have a Will, it is important to regularly check and update your Will as your circumstances may have changed. Remember that doing a Will is important for when you die but you should also consider doing a Lasting Power of Attorney to make sure that someone you trust can deal with your affairs should you become incapacitated whilst you are still alive.

Leaving a Legacy

As you complete your instructions, you will be asked if you would like to leave a gift to Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. You are under no obligation to do so, and you will not be pressurised to do so.

Gifts left in Wills account for a third of our fundraising income and they are an important way of funding our activities. Just 1% (or more if your circumstances allow) will help us in the fight against lung cancer including:

  • Research into improving early detection of lung cancer and the patient experience.
  • Patient support activities including free telephone helpline, a network of nurse led patient support groups, a dedicated online forum, a range of information materials and financial grants to lung cancer patients.
  • Awareness campaigns highlighting the early signs and symptoms of lung cancer so that more people are diagnosed sooner and receive effective treatment, ultimately saving lives.
