Will Aid 2010
Help yourself and the NSPCC by getting a will drawn up
Will Aid takes place again this November, during which time solicitors who have signed up to the scheme will waive their charges for drawing up wills. Those people who take advantage of the scheme are encouraged to donate the fee to the Will Aid charities instead.
The NSPCC are one of the charities chosen to benefit from the scheme again this year. Last year Will Aid managed to raise over £1 million for the first time, £145,000 of which was given to the NSPCC. The scheme has been running since 1988 and in that time has raised over £8 million for charity.
Making a will is an important way of protecting loved ones in the future. Unfortunately many people haven't got a will and die without having made one. When this happens belongings are distributed according to intestacy - a detailed impersonal set of rules that dictate where the money goes.
By taking part in Will Aid, not only will you protect your family, but you can also help children who desperately need your help. Full details on how you can take part can found on the Will Aid website.
