May is the first ‘Make A Will Month’ for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. While many of us think that making a will is only for the rich and famous, Rainbows is keen to emphasise the benefits to us all. They have worked with Leicestershire solicitors to secure over 50% off the cost of writing or amending a person’s will.
Patricia Brookes, Director of Fundraising at Rainbows says, “We have worked hard with local lawyers from across the county to organise a scheme involving 19 Leicestershire solicitors which gives everyone the chance to exercise their Will power”.
“Most people do not realise the potential value of their estate and the real danger that everything they have worked hard for all their life could end up being given to the government if they don’t make their wishes clear. We hope that, as Rainbows has negotiated this fantastic offer, people may leave a gift to us in their will. Even the smallest bequest can make a big difference to a charity like Rainbows and while the money brings joy to our life-limited children, young people and their families, the memory of the donor lives on in a very real way”.
With 19 Leicestershire solicitors offering to draft or update your will for only £35 + VAT the scheme is sure to be popular. Full details of the scheme can be found at www.rainbows.co.uk/wills or you can contact Patricia Brookes on 01509 638 002.
