Law firm Thorntons are just beginning their first Charity Wills Month.

Get them to draft your will from 1 to 30 September 2019 and there will not be any fee. There will however be an opportunity for you to donate to Cash for Kids. Over £380,000 has been raised for the charity in the last 23 years.

Morna Coutts, Private Client Partner at Thorntons in Edinburgh, said: “People often delay making a Will for fear it’s a morbid experience and think it can wait for tomorrow. But it’s usually a quick and simple process and can save you money and time. It also makes matters much easier for family members in the long run. 

“Our Charity Wills month is the perfect time to sort your affairs and support a vital local cause at the same time. The initiative has proven to be a huge success in Dundee, Angus, Perth and Fife in the past so we hope our clients here in Edinburgh will get behind it and help boost our fundraising pot for 2019.”

Victoria Hendry, Cash for Kids Charity Manager, said: “We are delighted yet again to be working with Thorntons on their Charity Wills month campaign. We are extremely grateful for the continued support from Thorntons and their clients which enables us to support local disadvantaged children across our local communities.

“We are particularly excited about the launch of Charity Wills month in Thorntons’ Edinburgh office this year where we hope to see the campaign grow. The money raised will make a huge difference and we hope to see our Radio Forth listeners get behind this fantastic campaign.”
