Anyone thinking about making a Will please read!


Hi Ladies

This is a little bit random, but I know lots of us are starting to think about making a will with little ones on the way!

My mum Alli has started a new job as head of fundraising for a charity, Grove House, in St Albans - which is a hospice that supports people with cancer and terminal illnesses.

Basically they are having a fundraising event, where solicitors make wills free of charge for them, and the customer, rather than lining the pockets of solicitors, makes a donation to the charity instead.

So basically you still pay for your will, but the money goes to a great cause, rather than to the solicitor. I think it's a really nice way of doing it, as obviously no-one likes to pay loads of money to solicitors!

There is information here about it, and my mum is happy to answer any questions. I won't post her email address on here but her details are on the website.

http://www.grove-house.org.uk/makeyourwill/

There is a list of the solicitors taking part if you just click through to 'participating solicitors'. There is one in London who is happy to take instructions over the phone, so it doesn't matter where in the country you are... you can do it all over the phone/by email.
The solicitor can let you know how to make the donation and will let you know a guide donation amount. Or you can speak to my mum Alli about it, her details are on the 'contact me' page and she is more than happy to help!

The fundraiser runs from 1st-12th November, but you can call/visit the solicitors any time from now to get your will done.

If you want any more info just PM me I'd really like to help the charity, and my mum of course! And I think it's a great way to get a will made, and feel good about doing it!
