WORLD renowned model and actress Twiggy has lent her support to a will writing scheme supporting children’s charity Barnardo’s.
Chester-based Lees Solicitors, of St Johns Court, Vicars Lane, and Barnardo’s are encouraging more people in Cheshire to make a will by having one drawn up for free.
Twiggy said: “Will power is wonderful.
“And you might not know it, but you have it.
“Support Barnardo’s Gifts in Wills campaign and you have the power to turn around the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.
“What’s to lose?”
With almost half of the children’s charity’s income from the general public being donated through wills, Barnardo’s, who have a shop in Frodsham Street, is offering the free will writing service for those aged 55 years and over.
Ginny Harris, Barnardo’s Gifts in Wills marketing manager, said: “Dying without a will can cause many problems for those you leave behind.
“It is not always right to just assume that everything will go smoothly.
“And making a will is also an opportunity to make a donation to causes that matter to you.
“These donations are our lifeblood and make a huge difference to the vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people who we work with.”
Lees Solicitors, who are part of the national Quality Solicitors network, will be offering the free service to a limited number of customers on a first come first served basis now.
