Will Aid ini­tia­tive aims to en­cour­age peo­ple to make a will

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

CHAR­ITY part­ner­ship Will Aid and branches of Lloyds Bank across Le­ices­ter­shire have come to­gether to en­cour­age more peo­ple to make a will.

Will Aid Month, which takes place ev­ery Novem­ber, en­cour­ages peo­ple to write their will with a lo­cal so­lic­i­tor. Par­tic­i­pat­ing law firms give their time to write ba­sic wills, with clients mak­ing a vol­un­tary do­na­tion to Will Aid in­stead of pay­ing a fee. Do­na­tions sup­port the vi­tal work of the nine part­ner char­i­ties.

Ahead of the 2017 cam­paign, Lloyds Bank­ing Group will be pro­mot­ing the scheme in their 13 branches in Le­ices­ter­shire.

James Tar­leton, chair of Will Aid, said: “We would en­cour­age those who would like to make an ap­point­ment with Will Aid to book as soon as pos­si­ble as solic­i­tors are fill­ing up fast.”

The rec­om­mended do­na­tion for your ba­sic Will Aid will is £95 for a sin­gle will and £150 for a pair of mir­ror wills.
