Purrfect will helps local animal shelter

24 April 2013

We are supporting Cheltenham Animal Shelter by helping them raise much needed funds through a purrfect will campaign.

Running from Monday 3 to Friday 28 June the scheme encourages people to make a basic will or update an existing will free of charge. People are instead invited to make a donation to the shelter to help the charity continue with its much needed rescue and rehoming work throughout Gloucestershire.

One of our wills trust and probate team members comments: “Having your will drawn up professionally can offer you peace of mind that everything is left in order after you die. An up-to-date will is essential to ensure those you love are provided for on your death, if you die without one families can suffer deprivation, delay and distress.”

Suggested donations are £40 for a codicil (amendment to your existing will), £90 for a basic single will or £135 for a pair of basic mirror wills (ie husband and wife).

Deb Barron of Cheltenham Animal Shelter said: “The shelter cares for more than 1,000 unwanted, stray and abandoned dogs, cats and small animals each year. It costs us around £500,000 to feed, shelter, vaccinate and rehome these unwanted pets and this figure is increasing with the cost of living and the growing number of animals needing care. Please help us by participating in our purrfect will scheme.”

“We are very grateful to Willans solicitors for helping in this worthy campaign by providing the wills, probate & trusts team’s time free of charge.”
