Use your free will to Inspire a Legacy

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | September 11th, 2017

Throughout this week (11-15 September) you can have a legally valid will drawn up for free. Law firms throughout the country are offering this service as part of National Wills Week.

Even if you already have a Will, if your circumstances have changed (you’ve recently married, divorced or widowed, bought or sold property, or the number of people dependent on you financially has increased or decreased), now is the perfect time to ensure your Will is valid and up to date.

It’s also an opportunity to include a charitable bequest in your planning, especially if you have no one near and dear to inherit your possessions and money. In a case like this, where there is no valid Will, your possessions may go to the state.

Leaving a bequest to Tafta can make a real difference in the lives of elderly people facing real hardship and suffering. If a bequest in your Will helped fund an old age home – providing comfort for hundreds of elderly folk in the years to come – it would be a real achievement, and your memory would live on in the hearts and minds of those touched by your generosity.

What is a bequest?
Bequests are gifts made in your Will to family members, friends, employees and charities. They often take the form of a fixed sum of money or an item such as jewellery, furniture, etc which may have monetary or sentimental value to the recipient.

How do I make a bequest to Tafta?
To ensure the correct legal wording is used, and the most appropriate form of bequest is chosen, it’s best to seek the advice of an attorney – and if you do it this week, you’ll benefit from free advice!

If you have already included a gift to Tafta in your Will, or are planning to do so, please let us know. Your gift is of great value to us and we would like to thank you personally, and perhaps discuss with you how you would like it to be used.
