The Royal United Hospitals Bath’s charity, The Forever Friends Appeal, has launched a free online will-writing service to help the local community make or update their wills from the comfort of their own homes.

The charity has teamed up with Beyond, one of the UK’s top online will-writing providers to provide the service. The cost for a single will is usually £90, but for a limited period it is being offered free of charge.

“We are delighted to team up with Beyond to offer a free, quick and easy online will writing service to the local community,” said Jan Witt, Legacy and In Memory Manager for The Forever Friends Appeal. “We fully understand that during these uncertain times, many people are thinking about their current situation and wish to put their affairs in order. We are therefore pleased to offer this free online will service to enable everyone to make a will, giving them peace of mind.

“This offer is free for a limited period and there is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to support The Forever Friends Appeal. However, we hope you’ll be inspired to kindly leave a ‘gift of care’ in your will, no matter what size, to help the RUH continue to provide the high quality of care it gives to its patients and their families for the future.”

Gifts in Wills for the RUH are used to benefit many areas of the hospital including funding pioneering research, additional medical equipment, building projects and the refurbishment of wards and facilities.

Beyond’s online interactive will service provides easy step-by-step instructions means the process to make a legally binding simple will should only take about 15 minutes. Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible and joint wills for married couples are also included in the offer. Every will is checked by one of Beyond’s in-house legal experts.
