As we approach the end of November, this will also bring to an end Will Aid for another year. Despite the current Lockdown, our solicitors in Newark and Mansfield have still managed to accommodate taking instructions from clients in a variety of ways from telephone appointments to video calls. Our commitment to giving our time to Will Aid and our dedication to ensuring the people of Newark and Mansfield still have access to making a Will, remains unfaltering in these uncertain times, says solicitor Clare Newton.
Tallents Solicitors raises enough money through Will Aid to help communities battle drought in Kenya
A law firm has raised enough money to help build a dam, plant tree seedlings and teach farmers how to plant drought-resistant crops in third world countries.
Tallents Solicitors in Nottinghamshire raised £14,330 after taking part in Will Aid, a national campaign which invites solicitors to volunteer some of their time in the month of November to write wills in exchange for a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
The sad fact that the coronavirus does not discriminate in its victims, taking the young and healthy, as well as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, has led to an increase in people wanting to write a will or update an existing one, says Sarah Allen, Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate from Tallents Solicitors.
However, when the country is in lockdown and solicitors’ offices are closed to the general public, how do you go about getting your will sorted and ensure it is still valid?
Having a will. Writing a will. We all know we should have one, but for some reason, we keep putting it off. Well, this November, Tallents Solicitors is making it easier for everyone to write their will in conjunction with Will Aid, the will writing charity.
Book an appointment to make a simple or joint will this month and Tallents Solicitors will waive their usual fees in exchange for a voluntary donation to Will Aid, who will then distribute the donations made to nine UK charities.
