..well worth doing especially if you have children..make a will in November at your nearest participating solicitor..for the cost of a donation to charity...no minimum/maximum donation.

Will Aid offers you the opportunity to have a basic Will professionally drawn up by a solicitor free of charge. In return for this service, the solicitors hope that you will choose to donate to the Will Aid charities the fee they would nomally charge*.


Welcome to Will Aid, the UK's most enduring and successful charity Will-making scheme.

The objective of the campaign is simple but compelling: to encourage people to make a Will with a solicitor and at the same time raise vital funds for the Will Aid charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, Help the Aged, NSPCC, Save the Children UK, Sightsavers International, SCIAF and Trocaire.

Great find ! :thumbsup:

will look into this, need to get one done to keep my house away from ex-wife in case i die...........woooh morbid.

>..well worth doing especially if you have children

It is worth doing even if you DONT have children, or a wife / husband.

A man died in our street over 2 years ago. He lived on his own, owned his own house, and left no will.

It tooks ages to sort out all his relatives, who was entitled to what, and all that time the solicitors who were sorting it out were taking their cut.

It has now been sorted out and the house has been sold, but it took 2 YEARS.

wow this is willy good

Anyone know what the fee is that a solicitor would normally charge for a will?

usually about £50-£75 for single and £100 for joint mirrored wills or £30 to change an existing will..

Cost of writing one "simple" will is normally around £200. £300 for parallel wills for husband and wife, plus £50 for each subsequent change. The solicitors make their real money by persuading you to use them as Executors - they then have several thousand pounds of work when you die. Never use a "will writer" - they are cheap but your loved ones will regret your choice for all sorts of reasons - badly written wills, impossible clauses etc.. Do get your will written if you want to avoid months / years of hassle and want to be certain that your loved ones get their inheritance according to your wishes - it is always at a difficult time for those you leave behind - use a solicitor if you can.

Not wishing to pour cold water on this. However, donation level seems a tad high considering that a will can be had for significantly less than the suggested donation level.

Looked at doing this but as a hot dealer found out my union does it for free. Still voted hot though as it is a great deal and worthwhile.

"With Will Aid you can have your Will professionally drawn up for a suggested donation of £75 towards our work with some of the poorest children, families and communities around the world. Will Aid takes place in November each year."

Who's got the bottle to take in a receipt for £1 & ask for a Will to be made up!??

:whistling: its a donation..i.e you choose how much to donate... only talks about suggested donation level but if some people feel the nspcc etc isnt a good cause then thats their choice to donate less...

When your solicitor has completed your Will, he / she will invite you to make a donation to Will Aid. The suggested minimum donation is £75 for a single Will, £110 for a pair of Wills and £40 if you are making a codicil to an existing Will. You can donate safely online or give a cheque made out to Will Aid to your solicitor who will forward it to us.

An excellent find.
Been thinking of getting one done for ages & nice to hear that charities will benefit.

Aint rubber cheques great?

:whistling:

if your moving home your solicitor will usually do it for free mines has twice

Moved to freebies as this service is free with an option to pay to charity.

Voted hot, anything to help people in need is good in my book. Better than making the rich richer when someone who really needs it can benefit.

For people over 60, the Stroke Association is offering free wills see ]http//ww…-l/

cracking deal, voted hot by me and rep added for OP.

I need to make a will, been thinking that for a while, but with going under anaesthetic (risky for me) soon its even more important. This is much better than just paying a solicitor
