Clydebank residents are being urged to take advantage of a kind-hearted scheme which sees solicitors volunteer their time to write Wills throughout November.

Locals can get their Will written for them during this year’s Will Aid campaign, a scheme which is been running since 1988 open to all adults.

During November, several firms from across the legal world in this country offer up their services through the initiative which has seen more than £24 million in donations over the years.

Johnathan Chase, chair of Will Aid, called on locals to get an appointment with a solicitor booked quickly as there is always a high demand for the service.

He said: “We are very grateful to all the solicitors, new and returning, who selflessly volunteer their time to write thousands of Wills without their normal fee each year.

“Not only does their philanthropy help thousands of local people protect their loved ones and causes close to them with a professionally written Will, but it also helps the Will Aid partner charities continue their life-changing work.”

More than 350,000 people have written their Will through the project with suggested donations taken of £100 for a single Will and £180 for a pair of mirror Wills.

The annual nationwide fundraising campaign shares its proceeds between nine of the UK’s leading charities: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).

Peter de Vena Franks, Campaign Director for Will Aid, said: “The money raised each year is incredibly important for each of our partner charities.

“It was inspiring to see our committed solicitors, continue to volunteer their time to raise vital funds last year.

“I encourage anyone who does not yet have a Will to use this opportunity to protect loved ones and causes close to them while supporting nine of the UK’s best-loved charities.”

Visit find your solicitor, but hurry as bookings will close at the end of November.
