Donald Race & Newton Solicitors will be supporting Will Aid throughout November.

Donald Race & Newton Solicitors, based on Hargreaves Street in Burnley and Albert Road in Colne, are urging people to take the opportunity to visit them to organise a new will, with Sara Jane Chorkley in the Burnley office and Dawn Walmsley in the Colne office leading the initiative.

“Not only will you get a new will written for a fraction of the price but you are supporting an extremely good cause,” read a statement from DRN.

“Will Aid has also teamed up with Certainty to include free will registration, usually priced at £25.”

A basic will - which should suffice unless you have more complex circumstances and or wide-ranging assets - includes details of executors, the appointment of guardians for any minor children or dependents, and beneficiaries.

“The suggested minimum donation to Will Aid for this service is £95 for a single Will,” the statement continued. “This represents a 50% cost saving. For a pair of mirror image wills for you and your partner, then Will Aid suggest a minimum donation of £150.

“You may also consider makingWill Aid a beneficiary in your Will.

“Ensure your wishes are carried out by putting in place a Will to protect you and your loved ones.”
