Local solicitors firm, Hatch Brenner, is once again taking part in the national charity will writing scheme Will Aid this November.
The Hatch Brenner Private Client team will be offering clients the opportunity to have a simple Will professionally drawn up without charge, in the hope that clients will make a donation to the Will Aid charities. The suggested donation level is £100 for a single basic Will and £180 for a pair of Wills.
The money raised supports the vital work of nine of the UK's best known charities all of whom work to transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).
The Will Aid scheme has been running since 1988 and has enabled the legal profession to raise over £20 million for good causes.
Caroline Billings, Hatch Brenner Partner and Head of Private Client commented: “We are delighted to be taking part in Will Aid again for 2019. Having been the highest donating legal firm in Norfolk for our contribution to the Will Aid 2017 campaign, we are determined to raise lots of money again this year. Since starting to work with Will Aid we have raised £18,703.”
Will Aid Campaign Director Peter de Vena Franks added: “Making a Will is one of the most thoughtful and important things you can do to protect those you love. Yet it is surprising that fewer than half of people have made one. Most say they simply haven't got around to it and yet it can take years to sort out someone's estate if they die without a Will, leaving their nearest and dearest in great distress.
“Will Aid is a great opportunity to make a proper, valid will to ensure your wishes will be carried out after death and to avoid the kind of family disputes, financial worries and legal battles that can ensue when someone dies without a proper will.”
