The Private Client Department here at John Fowlers Solicitors LLP are honoured to be participating and supporting the first Essex Age UK Wills Month, commencing Monday 3rd – Friday 28th October.
Essex Age UK supports over 60,000 older people in Essex offering their vital services. They receive no national funding and are funded locally through donations, legacies and fundraising by the people of Essex. Therefore, if there is any way our Private Client Team can assist Essex Age UK, we endeavour to do so.
The purpose of the Age UK Essex Will scheme is that members of the public instruct their designated solicitors to prepare a Will but instead of paying the firm’s fees, they provide a donation to Age UK. To this end, the solicitor works for no fee at all and passes on to Age UK 100% of the fee for creating a simple Will.
This year, Age UK Essex has suggested the minimum gift donation is £75.00 for a simple single Will and £120.00 for simple mirror Wills. You are also able to leave a legacy within your Will, whether that be part of your residuary estate, a fixed amount of money or a specific gift such as a piece of jewellery, stocks and shares or household items.
Taking part is easy. Simply call Age UK Essex on 01245 207 065 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As appointments are limited, Essex Age UK recommends booking early to avoid disappointment. We hope this to be a great success for Age UK Essex, with the help of the generosity of those taking part in this scheme.
