Glasgow and Hamilton practice Scullion LAW is running its seventh annual free will writing service in support of end of life charity Marie Curie.

Under the scheme, people can have a will prepared for no fee, instead leaving a gift to the charity. Since 2015 the partnership has seen 1,000 wills written under the scheme, with almost £250,000 in pledges being made.  

The scheme is available to anyone aged 18 and over, and can be booked online via the Scullion LAW website.

Gordon Lennox, associate director and head of the Private Client department at Scullion LAW, commented: “We are delighted to continue supporting Marie Curie. This is our seventh 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.”

Claire Mackie, legacy adviser at Marie Curie, added: “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.”
