Why make a will?

Making a Will is the only way to ensure that those you care about are provided for when you have gone. First of all, you must make sure that your family and friends will receive what you would wish. You might then consider leaving a portion of your estate to help us to preserve your national heritage for the future. The best way to make a Will is through your solicitor, and this need not cost very much at all.

Very often during our lives, we are unable to be as generous as we would wish towards our favourite charities because of the inevitable financial constraints. A legacy will perpetuate your support for ever, without incurring any tax. It might even help your family by reducing any inheritance tax bills that might arise when you have gone.
