Will Aid is a scheme to have a will drawn up by a solicitor in exchange for a donation to charity.
November is Will Aid month.
Every November, participating solicitors waive their fee for writing a basic will. Instead, they invite you to make a donation that is shared between the Will Aid charities. Suggested minimum donations are £95 for a single basic will, or £150 for a pair of basic mirror wills.
There is more information on the Will Aid website at www.willaid.org.uk. The website has a tool that lets you search for a participating solicitor by area.
There is another scheme, Will Relief Scotland: this usually takes place in September. Its website is www.willreliefscotland.co.uk.
