Award-winning Scottish legal firm Scullion LAW recently launched their annual free Will writing service in support of end of life charity, Marie Curie. To book an appointment please click here.
It’s the seventh year running the legal firm has partnered with Marie Curie, which has hospices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and provides care and support to terminally ill people and their families across Scotland.
Throughout the partnership, which has already seen 1,000 people leave a gift to the charity as a result of the free Will writing scheme, almost £250,000 pledges have been made since 2015. This is a substantial amount of future income for the charity.
Claire Mackie, Legacy Advisor at Marie Curie, said:
“We are grateful to Scullion LAW for supporting us once again through its free Will writing service. No one likes to think of writing a Will, but it’s important they do. Not only can it offer people and their families peace of mind, but it means their wishes are carried out and can make such a difference to a charity, like Marie Curie.
“Our nurses have been at the frontline of the pandemic caring for terminally people across Scotland. Coupled with financial pressures as a result of key fundraising activities being cancelled due to Covid-19, Marie Curie needs to raise £250,000 per week to support our services in Scotland.”
The free Will writing scheme is available to anyone aged 18 and over and can be booked online by clicking here.
Gordon Lennox WS, Associate Director, and Head of the Private Client Department at Scullion LAW, which has offices in Glasgow and Hamilton, said:
“We are delighted to continue supporting Marie Curie. This is our 7th successful year working together and we are delighted to have raised a substantial amount of future income for the charity. Thank you to all of our generous clients for your kind donations. Marie Curie need our help now more than ever to support the superb work they do in the communities. We encourage everyone 18+ to make a Will to give yourself and those you love peace of mind”.
