We know that making a will isn't an easy thing think about, but we're here to help… 

There are several things you might not know about wills, and how to get one. Did you know that according to research, three in five adults in the UK (59%) don’t have a will? And did you also know that there are 5.4 million UK residents who don’t know how to go about writing a will? 

By making a Will in St Luke’s Will Month, you’ll be getting peace of mind and great value for money, at the same time as supporting our patients and their families. 

Our Will Month is back for its twelfth year. In that time, you have helped us raise over £176,000 and over 1,800 wills have been written.


Make a Will and make sure your wishes are carried out when you’re gone…

Making a Will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes are carried out and your loved ones are provided for after your death. Any major life event is the perfect reason to write or update your Will.

Moving home. Getting married. Having a baby. Having grandchildren.

Why should I make my Will during St Luke’s Will Month?

Quite simply, you’ll be getting great value for money, at the same time as supporting our patients and their families. Will Month is a partnership between St Luke’s and local solicitors across the city. A participating solicitor will draw up a basic Will* for you and invite you to make a donation in place of their fee. This will help local people who have a terminal illness, at a time when every day matters more than ever.

You may choose to leave a gift to St Luke’s in your Will if you wish, although this is not a condition of the scheme. Ask your solicitor for more details.


*Please note that your solicitor will advise you that any complex instructions may incur an additional fee.

Leaving a gift in your Will

After you’ve taken care of the people closest to you, a gift in your Will could make a huge difference to the lives of our patients. Your gift could mean that no matter what challenges the future holds, we can be there for anyone in Sheffield with a terminal illness, giving patients the care we would all want for our loved ones.

Leaving St Luke’s a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come.

You can find out more about leaving a gift in your Will by calling 0114 235 7553 or emailing [email protected]

A bit more about St Luke’s

St Luke’s is an independent charity caring for terminally ill adults across the city and their loved ones. Our care is provided at no cost to our patients and we rely on our generous supporters to keep our work going.

Each year, we care for around 1,900 patients - most of whom are cared for in their own home by our Specialist Palliative Care Community team. It’s not just patients that we help either - we extend support, bereavement counselling and practical help to family members too, so that each year, our work touches the lives of more than 6,000 people.

We are not part of the NHS and of the £10 million it takes to deliver our services each year, £7 million of that comes from donations - just like yours.

The coronavirus pandemic, however, has had a devastating effect on St Luke’s financially and fundraising has been severely impacted. St Luke’s will suffer from the financial impact of this pandemic for several years to come.

Please help us in our recovery by making a Will with a donation in place of a solicitor’s fee today.
