Make your last wishes known and help charities at same time

People from Belper are being urged to get a professionally-written will and help a number of charities at the same time.

A number of law firms in Derbyshire are taking part in Will Aid Month.

This means that they are offering their services on a voluntary basis to help people write their will this November.

And, instead of charging a fee, they are inviting the will-maker to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.

The suggested donation is £95 for a single basic will and £150 for a pair of basic matching or “mirror” wills.

All the money that is donated is shared between the nine participating charities that carry out life-changing work in the UK and around the world.

A Will Aid spokesman said: “For any one who hasn’t written a Will, and 52 per cent of people recently surveyed said they had not yet done so, it’s time to sort everything out by writing a proper, valid will.”

Participating solicitors in Derbyshire can be found by visiting www.willaid.org.uk or by calling the Will Aid hotline on 0300 0300 013.
