Make a Will with Will Aid this November Monday 23rd of October 2017

Make a Will with Will Aid this November

Swinburne Maddison LLP is pleased to announce that we will once again be taking part in Will Aid this November. 

We will waive our fee for drawing up a basic Will and instead invite our clients to donate to the Will Aid group of charities. The suggested minimum donations are £95 for a single basic Will and £150 for mirror Wills.

The money raised is shared by the nine Will Aid charities - ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland) and is used to transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world.

Will Aid has raised over £19 million since it launched in 1988 and an estimated £95 million has been pledged as legacies by people making their Will through the scheme. The campaign is proud to have helped over 300,000 people to write a proper Will with a professional solicitor.

Having an up to date and properly written Will is the only way to be sure that your money and possessions will be distributed according to your wishes. It is also the only certain way to avoid difficulties for your relatives and friends after your death. By making a Will with Will Aid you will be protecting your loved ones’ future and helping to raise money to support the vital work of the Will Aid charities.

For more information or to make an appointment, please contact a member of our Private Client team on 0191 384 2441 and quote “Will Aid”.
