Your Will Can Make A Difference

Zoomed in image of a yellow post it note which has the words “Must make a will” written on it.

We all know we should make a Will.  But how many of us put off doing so without realising the implications for those we’ll leave behind? Making preparations in your lifetime about what should happen to your possessions or assets after you die may save your loved ones difficulties and cost in the future.  Young people, as well as those of more advanced years, can make their wishes very clear by writing a Will.


This year we are partnering with two Herefordshire solicitors, who are offering to help local people get their affairs in order whilst also supporting the College’s work with people who are blind and partially sighted. From 7 to 18 March 2016, Solicitor, Sally Smith of Harrison Clark Rickerbys Solicitors, Hereford (01432 349670) and Adrian Jones, Paralegal at Gabbs Solicitors, Leominster (01568 616333) are offering to waive their Will writing fee in exchange for a donation to RNC.  This opportunity relates to basic Wills i.e. where the instructions outlined in the Will are not complex.


The suggested donation is £95 for a basic single Will and £150 for basic mirror Wills. The money raised will give students at the RNC the chance to live independently and the opportunity to retrain for work or the prospect of university.  Demand is likely to be high so booking an appointment for Will Writing Fortnight as early as possible with one of the two participating solicitors is recommended.
