Solicitors waive writing fees for Make a Will month

TWO solicitor firms in Hastings are waiving their will writing fees during November as part of Make a Will month.

EMD Law in Warrior Square, St Leonards and Heringtons in Lacuna Place, are offering their services as part of the Will Aid scheme.

They will will draw up basic wills without charging their normal fee. Instead they hope that will-makers will make a donation to Will Aid.

The suggested donation level is £85 for a single will and £125 for a pair of matching or ‘mirror’ wills or £40 for a change to an existing will.

The scheme is open to adults of any age. Will Aid is an annual fundraising campaign involving nine of the UK’s leading charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Age UK, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).

The money raised is shared by the participating charities and is put to work helping children, families, older people and whole communities in the UK and around the world.

For more information about the service call Sarah Campbell at Heringtons on 01424 434192 or Liz Dunbleton at EMD on 01424 420261.

All participating solicitors can be found at www.willaid.org.uk or by calling the hotline 0300 0300 013.
