A Birmingham based solicitors will be offering Wills at no cost to people aged 55 and over as part of an award-winning scheme.
Quality Solicitors Davisons will be offering Wills to people in their exclusive partnership with Barnardo’s to people who don’t already have on in place. They can have a simple Will professionally written that can capture everything from final wishes and organ donation to basic inheritance and tax planning.
Quality Solicitors Davisons have been established for over 25 years and continue to help individuals and businesses solve their legal matters efficiently and cost effectively.
Those taking advantage of this offer will be asked to consider leaving a legacy gift in their Will to Barnardo’s.
The scheme has already had 3,500 people take part and a huge £16.8m pledged for the future legacy income for vulnerable and disadvantaged children throughout the UK since it began in 2010.
The money goes towards research and services for young people and families who have experienced poverty, sexual exploitation or domestic violence.
Angela Craig, Chartered Legal Executive for Quality Solicitors Davisons said: “Making a will is something people should not put off doing.
“It means that you decide who should benefit from your estate and who should handle everything.
“Having a will not only provides reassurance but also clear direction and protection for any loved ones you’re leaving behind.
“We all think the worst won’t happen to us so we put it off but committing just a couple of hours now means no one would have to take that risk.”
Sue Westbury, Barnardo’s Senior Will Scheme Client and Relationship Manager said: “ The support and engagement from participating member firms continues to do result in very significant numbers of pledges which will help us to plan for the future,”
“Barnardo’s currently has three strategic aims to build stronger families, to make safer childhoods, and to ensure positive futures for the children, young people, carers and families that we work with.
“We currently operate 1067 services across the UK helping over 301,000 people, and this wouldn’t be possible without the legacy income that we currently receive.
“Barnardo’s would like to say a huge thank you to QualitySolicitors Head Office and all the member firms who participate in the scheme.”
The law surrounded estate planning and administration is complexed and there are risks involved in not having a Will that is properly drafted, signed and witnessed. Using a solicitor reduces these risks and allows you to have reassurance that they will be protected if something goes wrong.
By taking advantage of March Will Month, people ages 55 and over can save up to £150 for a professionally written single Will or up to £210 for a couple who make mirrored Wills.

*Applies to simple single or mirror wills only for people aged 55 and over. For more complex wills you will be charged our usual fee with the discount being applied to the final invoice.
