Local charity launches discounted wills promotion

More than half of adults (56%) in the UK don’t have a valid will, which means that their estate (their property, financial and other assets) will be left to someone they haven’t chosen when they die.

To encourage residents of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to take action now to make or update a will, local charity Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland is launching its much awaited annual will writing promotion.

The successful scheme, which runs from the 1st  March – 30th April 2023 is supported by many local solicitors who have generously agreed to reduce their Will Writing charges for older people (55+) to only £35 + VAT for an updated or a single uncomplicated Will for the duration of the promotion.

It’s important that a will is in place as it gives not only you, but your family peace of mind for the future and can prevent the risk of significant problems when dealing with your estate. It’s also advised that you regularly review your will to ensure it is up to date.

Don’t miss Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland’s straightforward, simple and affordable way to write or update your will. And whilst we understand that loved ones will come first, please consider leaving Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland a gift in your will.

Gifts in wills are a vital source of income for the charity and if you’re able to leave just 1% of an estate it can make such a big difference and help to secure the longer-term future of a vital local independent charity which has been supporting older people for over 70 years.
