Why have a Will?
Elizabeth said: “Having an up to date and properly written Will is the only way to be sure that your money and possessions will be distributed according to your wishes. “It is also the only certain way to avoid financial penalties and family disputes for your relatives and friends after your death. “By making a Will you will be protecting your loved ones’ future.

What is Will Aid?
Will Aid raises awareness of the importance of having a proper, professionally drafted Will that ensures your wishes will be carried out after you die. Will Aid has raised over £15 million since its launch over 25 years ago and an estimated £95 million has been pledged as legacies by people making their Will through the scheme. The campaign is proud to have helped more than 275,000 to write a proper Will with a professional solicitor. The money raised is shared by the nine Will Aid charities* and is used to transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world. *The Will Aid charities are: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).
