We know that right now for many people, provision for families and loved ones is a top priority.
As enquiries for Will Month are already high, we can confirm Will Month is going ahead this April with our partner solicitors offering telephone and video appointments.
If making a Will is right for you, at this time, please read on to find out more.
Make a Will, make a saving and take care of those you love.
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 a good reason to write or update your Will.
Why should I make my Will during St Luke’s Will Month?
Quite simply, you’ll be getting great value for money, while 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. You may choose to leave a gift to St Luke’s in your Will, 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.
Take a look at this year's campaign advert to see just some of the big life events that mean it's important to both make a Will and keep it updated.
What do I do next?
Will Month takes place in April 2021, with bookings being taken now – be sure to book yours ASAP to avoid disappointment!
Appointments may be held in person, by phone or video call depending on circumstances at the time.
If you need any more information, have questions or would just like an informal chat, please call 0114 235 7551 or email [email protected].

Why I'm supporting Will Month : Gloria's Story
"We discovered all the benefits of being cared for by St Luke’s in those months when Tony needed help and that’s why I know how important it is for people to support St Luke’s campaigns like Will Month, to ensure the care we received when we needed it is there for other Sheffield families, when they need it.”
When Gloria’s husband, Tony, was diagnosed with cancer, they quickly discovered the many ways St Luke’s could provide support to both patients and families.
Tony came along to our Active Intervention Centre which gave him some much needed light-hearted relief, alongside tailored physiotherapy and well-being sessions. When Tony’s symptoms became worse, a short stay on the In Patient Centre helped to control his symptom and pain management and gave Gloria the chance to step back from the carers role and become a wife again, whilst still being with Tony every day.
Once his symptoms were well managed, Tony was able to return home and was cared for by our Community team in the comfort and familiarity of his own home.
“It was because of the wonderful support of the St Luke's Community Nursing Team that I can really say he died beautifully and peacefully, with great dignity. What was most important is that our son Shaun was able to be there and we could spend those last perfect minutes together."
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.
