One of the most meaningful and personal ways of support ORCA is to leave a legacy to help the charity for many years to come.
It’s important to have a Will so that you can make sure that you take care of your family, friends, as well as the causes that are close to your heart. By being prepared you can make sure your wishes are carried out and avoid confusion.
Wills are legal documents and can be complex; a small mistake in a Will can cause many problems. It is best to get someone legally qualified to draft one for you which includes all the friends, family and charities that you would like to remember.
You may have a friend or family member who can recommend a solicitor to help you write your Will but if not you can search for details of a local solicitor by visiting The Law Society’s website. There is a cost to using a solicitor for Will Writing so it’s advisable to check their fee structure before you instruct them, and shopping around is usually advisable.
Also bear in mind that some bank accounts and insurance policies may offer you legal services which can include Will Writing services for discounted rates (or sometimes even for free) – it’s definitely worth checking your policy documents!
If you are a member of Trade Union do also check with them as Will writing services are sometimes a benefit that Trade Unions offer their members.
