Throughout April, local solicitors in Gloucestershire are donating their expertise free of charge to write or update straightforward Wills. In return clients can choose to make a donation to local medical charity Cobalt.
All they need to do is ring up for a pack or download one from the website https://www.cobalthealth.co.uk/support-us/make-a-will-month-2/ along with a voucher to redeem at the solicitors. Then book an appointment with the firm. Suggested donations are £100 for a single Will and £150 for mirror Wills. The suggested donations are significantly less than the average costs of making a Will.
Making a Will is often one of those tasks that many of us put off. Make a Will Month is about highlighting the importance of making your wishes known whilst helping a local charity.
Helen Tomes, Supporter Relations Officer, Cobalt said “Donations we receive will be put towards our work supporting patients with cancer, dementia and their families”.
Legacies have enabled Cobalt to fund some life changing services and equipment over the years including:
• funding for a new teenagers and young adults with cancer specialist nurse
• provision of training and education for health care professionals
• a cutting edge PET/CT scanner for the Cobalt Imaging Centre, providing faster, safer and clearer scans for a patients
• contribution to local, national and international cancer and dementia research programmes.
Making a Will can offer peace of mind, bring any outstanding affairs into order, offer potential inheritance tax benefits and provide a vital source of income from any legacies left to charity.
