Perthshire law firm awarded for will aid effort

Perthshire firm Macnabs has raised more than £10,000 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign in which lawyers generously give up their time for free to write wills for local people in exchange for a donation.Macnabs raised £10,795 this year in the month-long fundraiser for Will Aid. This is the 6th year Macnabs has taken part, raising a fantastic £33,079 to date.

Partner Althea Kennedy said: “At Macnabs we know that Will Aid helps such worthwhile causes and for us to be part of that and to give something back has been wonderful. Over the past few years we’ve raised more and more and have seen so many of our clients benefiting from the campaign. It is so important that people make a Will – without one the law decides how your estate is passed on, and this might not be in line with your wishes.

“We have also signed up for the 2017 campaign and appointments are filling up fast, so if you would like to make your Will this November, please do get in touch. It is very easy to make a Will – and it will save your family unnecessary distress at an already difficult time.”

Peter de Vena Franks, campaign director for Will Aid said: “I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Macnabs and let them know that thanks to them, lives will change for the better and people who need it will continue to receive the help and support that the charities work so hard to provide.”
