All the money raised from Wills Month goes towards helping St Helena to be here every step of the way for everyone who needs us, helping life to go on in the face of dying, death and bereavement. 

Having a will is really important, whatever your age or circumstances. Making a will can allow you to ensure your affairs are in order, final wishes are met and your loved ones are looked after in the future and it may reduce inheritance tax. 

Once you’ve made your will and after you’ve taken care of your loved ones, would you consider leaving a gift in your will to St Helena?  Just as gifts pledged in the past are supporting the care we provide today, gifts pledged now will allow us to continue supporting the local community in the future.
