Will Aid Initiative a Lasting Success
This entry was posted in Wills and Probate on .
Throughout November, we teamed up with Will Aid to offer a free will writing service for local residents, helping people to protect their future and that of their families.
Sara Jane Chorkley from our Burnley office, and Dawn Walmsley from the Colne office, led the initiative by producing basic wills for customers throughout the month.
The suggested donation to Will Aid for this service was £90. This represented a 50% cost saving versus the normal price of a basic will. Furthermore, mirrored wills were offered for couples, with a suggested donation of just £150.
Not only did customers get a new will written for a fraction of the price, Will Aid also teamed up with The Law Society to include free will registration in the deal, usually priced at £25. This ensured that every will created under the scheme received official registration.
Will Aid supports nine charities; charities which help thousands of people in need across the UK and around the world. You can find out more here.
A substantial amount was raised for these very worthy causes by the team, and we are immensely proud to have been involved in the initiative. This not only allowed us to help Will Aid raise money, it also helped local residents plan for the future, and safeguard their family assets.
We look forward to more of the same next November! However, should you not have a will in place at the moment, we would recommend that you contact us as soon as possible to get one created.
Considering what you would like to happen in the event of your death is something most of us would rather avoid, however, taking care of these details early can protect everyone concerned.
We can provide you with straightforward advice, and help you plan for the future based on your own unique circumstances. Contact our Private Client Team today on 01282 433 241, or click here to find out more.
