Jo Swinson MP is encouraging local people to draw up a Will and help raise money for charity.
Throughout November, Will Aid solicitors are drawing up free basic Wills with the hope that clients will donate the fee they would normally charge – a suggested £85 for a single will, £125 for ‘mirror’ wills and £40 for a change to an existing will – to the Will Aid charity fund.
The money raised will be shared between charities including Age UK, British Red Cross, NSPCC and Save the Children. This year’s appointments are booking now – to find a participating solicitor, visit www.willaid.org.uk/will-makers/find-solicitor or call 0300 0300 013.
Commenting, Jo said:
“East Dunbartonshire residents should take this opportunity to obtain an affordable Will, providing their own family with security for the future while at the same time as helping those families most in need.”
“Last year, Will Aid raised £1.5 million for good causes, so I would encourage local people to get in touch with local participating solicitors to draw up their own Will.”
Will Aid is an annual fundraising campaign involving nine of the UK’s leading charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Age UK, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).
