Once again Wards will be participating in Will Aid during November.
To raise as much money as possible for Will Aid, we will draw up basic Wills without charge, in the hope that the Will-maker will make a donation to the Will Aid charities. The suggested donation level is £75 for a single Will, £110 for a pair of Wills or £40 for a codicil to an existing Will. Will Aid is a campaign run by nine of the UK’s best known charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Age UK, NSPCC, Save the Children UK, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).
Making a Will is one of the most thoughtful and important things we can do to protect those we 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 has raised more £8 million in donations and very much more in legacies since its launch in 1988. The last campaign in 2009 raised over £1.25 million in donations. The money raised is shared by the Will Aid charities and is used to transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world.
