For many people, writing a will can seem daunting but it is so important to have one as it is the only way to ensure your wishes are carried out after your death. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive.
Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin have produced a free Will Information Pack which will give you the information you need to know. If you would like one, please call 01743 233 123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can post one out to you.
Because we think writing a will is so important we are working with a number of local solicitors to offer a discounted will writing service.
This will save you 25% off the cost of writing your will. All that we ask if you make use of this scheme is that you consider leaving a gift in your will to Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin or make a donation to us.
If you are interested in the discounted will writing service, we can put you in touch with participating solicitors. Simply call 01743 233 123 or email email@example.com
Yes, but we do recommend that any will is drawn up by a solicitor to ensure that it reflects your exact wishes and you understand the tax implications. Any legacy to a charity is tax exempt. Your solicitor will need to know the exact name and charity number:
Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin
Charity Number: 1090445
If you already have a will, it is easy to include a charitable legacy by means of a codicil. You can download a template codicil form here (69kB .pdf file).
