Will Aid is a charity will-writing scheme that works with law firms to raise money for ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save The Children, Sightsavers, Age UK and Trocaire (Northern Ireland), amongst other charities. Worthingtons have been involved with Will Aid for 10 years running and have raised a breath-taking amount of £23,225 for the charity. This amount can be used to carry out a staggering 860 cataract surgeries with Sightsavers, making a genuine difference to their work.
We are delighted to announce that once again we will be teaming up with Will Aid in the hope of raising even more vital funds to help improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable people across the UK and around the world. Worthingtons are offering to draw up basic Wills for clients free of charge and afford clients the opportunity to donate the costs of drafting the Will to Will Aid.
We have been continuing to provide Will making services throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, bringing some much-needed comfort and reassurance to our clients. Having a professionally drafted Will is the best way to ensure your loved ones are provided for after your death. It also avoids the stress of coping with any legal complications for your family. If you draft a Will through the Will Aid Scheme at Worthingtons, you can also be assured that you are donating to an excellent cause too.
Our innovative practices also mean that you can make a Will without the need of coming into our offices. Our expert team aim to assist you throughout the process, making it as effortless as possible. Our Covid-19 temporary Will making procedure can be found here.
Although our offices are closed, we are regularly having telephone and Zoom video calls with clients to take their initial instructions. We then send clients our Wills Questionnaire to confirm their wishes. When clients send the questionnaire back to us, we draft the Will for the client’s final approval. This simple process gives peace of mind to our clients during this very challenging time. This process equally suits our clients who are too busy to come into the office for a face-to-face meeting. Worthingtons continuously strive to make services more efficient for clients.
Our Wills and Estates department can also provide you with specialist assistance on Wills and Estate Planning, administration of estates, contested Wills, Intestacy, and Inheritance tax advice.
