This November, local solicitors are ready and willing to help people put their affairs in order and secure the future for their loved ones - and one Ballymoney firm will be participating.
Hastings & Co of Charlotte Street are offering to write basic Wills without charging their normal fee. All that they ask in return is that clients consider making a donation to Will Aid. The suggested minimum donation is £90 for a single Will and £135 for mirror Wills.
Will Aid is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Over 250,000 people have written their Will through Will Aid since its launch. The money raised is shared by nine UK charities that carry out life-changing work here in the UK and around the world, including Age UK, Christian Aid and Save the Children.
When someone dies without a valid Will, their money and possessions are distributed under the laws of intestacy. Not only can this mean that the people intended to benefit might not do so, but it can also bring loved ones additional stress and heartache sorting out the mess at a time when they are least equipped to cope.
