Traditionally, November is the month during which our minds turn to our departed loved ones. We might start to consider our own future. We may want an heirloom to go to a dear friend, or for our home to go to someone specific. If we have children, we may want to appoint someone whom we trust as their guardian. We may just want to make things easier for our relatives. Whatever the reason, having a Will drafted will give you the peace of mind to face the future in confidence.
This November, we at Miller Hendry are delighted to be taking part in Will Aid, which involves our Solicitors drafting free, simple Wills for members of the public. In 2019, we raised the second highest amount of funds in Scotland!
Instead of a fee, you are encouraged to donate to one of nine participating charities:
- Age UK;
- British Red Cross;
- Christian Aid;
- Save the Children;
- Sightsavers; or
The recommended donation is £100.00 for a single Will, or £180.00 for ‘Mirror’ Wills (for a couple). The Will must be basic, so if you require a more complicated one, please contact us to arrange a regular appointment.
The appointments for Will Aid must be in November, but we are now taking bookings. There is a limited number of available appointments, so booking early is essential. You can book by going to <www.willaid.org.uk>. We are offering appointments at our Perth, Dundee, and Crieff Offices. The appointments can be done entirely virtually.
Miller Hendry would be delighted to help you, your family, and Will Aid’s charities!
