Thank you for thinking of Moorfields Eye Charity while making or updating your will. Writing a will ensures that your wishes for the future are recorded, and that you are able to support the people and causes you care about.

We have teamed up with Bequeathed to offer a free, simple and convenient online will-writing service to our supporters. Bequeathed’s online service offers a simple, step-by-step process to write your will - and their help is completely free.

For reassurance, before your will is sent to you for signature and witnessing, you will have a free half hour call or meeting with a solicitor to make sure your will is right for you. We think this is a great step to take away any concerns you may have that an online will can meet your needs.

Having an up-to-date will is important for all of us, so we hope this service helps you to update or make yours.

Leaving a gift in your will

There is no obligation to include a gift to Moorfields Eye Charity in your will when using this service, but we would of course be very grateful if you would consider supporting us in this way. 

Gifts in wills are vital to our work supporting Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, and enable us to invest in life changing eye health by funding innovative research, education and care to improve people’s sight.

In addition, those who leave us a gift in their wills are invited to join our Moorfields Visionaries Circle, which brings together these special supporters for unique, behind-the-scenes events to celebrate the incredible impact that their legacies will have.

Seeking further advice

If at any point in the process you need additional support or find that your estate and wishes are more complex than you anticipated, Bequeathed can also offer signposting to experienced solicitors who can offer impartial advice by telephone or in person once you have agreed a fee. 

Using Bequeathed’s will-writing service is free, but if you seek additional advice from an external solicitor you may need to pay a fee.
