January is Free Wills Month
This January, Macmillan is providing people with the opportunity to write a free will. 95% of the UK adult population does not have an up-to-date will. By having one, they can make sure their family, friends and the causes they care about, receive what they want to give them.
Please let the people you support, and your colleagues, know that this service is available. There’s no obligation to leave Macmillan a gift, but Gifts in Wills make up over 1/3 of Macmillan’s income and will help to fund our services for generations to come.
The closing date for registration is 31 January 2019 and wills must be completed by 30 April 2019.
To find out more, call 0800 804 8498 or visit macmillan.org.uk/freewillsmonth.
