Have your will written by a Will Aid solicitor this November and donate the fee to the NSPCC
Take part in WillAid during the month of November and donate your solicitor's fees toward helping us protect vulnerable children.
The NSPCC is one of nine charities benefiting from the WillAid scheme, where participating solicitors will waive their normal fee for drawing up a will and invite people to make a donation instead.
The suggested donations for solicitor services are:
- £90 for a single will
- £40 to amend or update an existing will
- £135 for a pair of matching wills.
Since its launch 24 years ago, WillAid has raised more than £10 million in donations for the partner charities and much more through gifts kindly left in supporters wills.
Make an appointment early to avoid disappointment as solicitors will book up fast.
Find a participating solicitor on the WillAid website and more information.
How will your money help
Kizzie, aged 12, rang ChildLine to discuss how she felt about living in a Residential Home and being away from her family and friends.
She said "I hate being in the home because everyone keeps falling out with each other and I always end up getting the blame". Kizzie said that she phoned ChildLine because she feels very isolated and believes that no one wants to talk, or care for her anymore.
She said "I've just had enough, I hate being alive, I just want to die". Kizzie said that she was "in her local railway station, in a phone box" and that she had "taken 10 tablets about an hour ago". She said that she was feeling "very sick and dizzy" and that she wanted "to go to sleep and never wake up".
The Counsellor let Kizzie know that ChildLine was very concerned about her and Kizzie said "can you call an ambulance for me?" Kizzie stayed talking on the phone until the ambulance arrived.
She rang back a few days later and said "thank you for being there when I really needed someone to talk to".
