A CANCER charity has teamed up with local solicitors to offer free wills to the over 55s.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is offering Lincolnshire residents the chance to take out a simple will with Bridge McFarland or Chattertons solicitors at no cost to themselves.

Legal advisor for Marie Curie Judie Glossop said: “Marie Curie Cancer Care has chosen to pay a discounted legal fee for the writing of simple wills and whilst there is no obligation to leave a gift to Marie Curie Cancer Care in your will, our hope is that people will choose to do so.”

Gifts in wills are the largest source of voluntary funding for the charity, helping its nurses to provide over 60,000 hours of home care to more than a thousand Lincolnshire patients.

Whether or not benefactors of the scheme choose to donate a charity gift, Marie Curie believes wills to be an important way of ensuring your wishes are followed after death so that your estate passes to friends, family and loved ones rather than the taxman.

The scheme is available now and runs until June 29, although there are a limited number of wills available, so interested parties are advised to act fast. For more information about the scheme contact Judie on 01476 578353.
