Bridge McFarland to donate £20 to charity for every Will made during August

Leading law firm Bridge McFarland is helping local hospices this summer by donating £20 for every Will signed during August

People who choose to use the firm to draw up their Will pay the normal price but Bridge McFarland will pass on £20 of the fee and divide it between four charities.

So the more people who opt for a Will the more the charities will get.

The charities to benefit will be St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, When You Wish Upon a Star and St Andrews Hospice in Grimsby and Louth & District Hospice.

According to research carried out by a financial advice website more than 30 million adults in the UK do not have a will.

The survey revealed that two-thirds of those aged between 35 and 54 are living without a will, despite 92% of people having a firm idea of who they would like to see their money go to when they die.

The financial advice website also revealed that more than a third (36%) of those aged over 55 have yet to make a will.

Dying without a Will means the Government will decide the order of who gets what from your estate – and if no one comes forward then the Government will take the lot.

“It’s really important for people to think seriously about making a will to ensure their wishes are followed and their families are left secure,” said Patrick Purves, Head of the Private Client Department at Bridge McFarland.

“It’s also a time when many people think about leaving a legacy for charities and we wanted to do something that encouraged people to make a Will and helped local organisations too.

“The four charities we have chosen all do fantastic work for the community and we are delighted to be able to support them.”
