Make a Will Make a Difference
With everyone tightening their belts, control of your money is more important than ever. So is taking control of who will inherit your hard earned savings. Will Aid provides a fantastic opportunity to put your affairs in order and help charities at the same time.
During November, Simpson Millar will draw up basic Wills and all we will ask in return is that the will-maker makes a donation to the Will Aid charities.
Making a Will is a straightforward and an important way of protecting family and loved ones in the future. If someone dies without a Will, then their assets are distributed according to the laws of intestacy – a detailed impersonal set of rules that dictate where the money goes. There is no guarantee that the surviving spouse will even keep the family home – it may have to be sold to pay off other relatives.
Will Aid is a campaign run by nine of the UK's best known charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Help the Aged, NSPCC, Save the Children UK, Sight Savers International, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).
The Will Aid charities can work miracles and transform the lives of people here in the UK and all over the world. For example, they work to help street children in Ghana, they provide clean drinking water to remote schools in Tibet and provide vital care to the elderly in the UK.
By taking advantage of the Will Aid opportunity this November, you will helping the Will Aid charities to transform the lives of children, their families and whole communities around the world, as well as ensuring the security of your own loved ones.
