Ledingham Chalmers takes part in Highland Hospice’s Make a Will month
Do you need to make your will, but are worried about how much it’ll cost? Or where to start?
Full-service law firm Ledingham Chalmers is taking part in Make a Will month throughout May, drafting wills in exchange for a donation to Highland Hospice.
Through its inpatient unit and day centres as well as in local hospitals, care homes and at individuals’ homes in the Highlands, this charity supports people, and their families and carers, living with an advancing, life shortening illnesses.
Inverness-based solicitor Natalie Coll said: “Make a Will Month is a great way to donate to a fantastic charity whilst ticking something off of your to-do list. And while we’ve taken part before, it’s especially important for us to raise money this year when COVID-19 is having a considerable financial impact on organisations like Highland Hospice.
“Drafting a will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your loved ones, not least because it allows you to control how your estate’s divided when you die. Importantly too, it’s also a way to appoint guardians to take care of any children under 16.
“Plus, some people may have a will but will find it’s out of date and doesn’t reflect a change in circumstances like marriage, separation or divorce, so this is a chance to get things updated.
“Normally we’d hold face-to-face consultations with clients, but given the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll be carrying out this vital service remotely over video conference or phone call.”
