We are taking part in the Make a Will Week to raise funds for the Isabel Hospice. The promotion is the week beginning the 6th March 2017; and we are taking appointments now.

We give our time free of charge, and the clients payment is given as a donation to the hospice.

There is no limit as to the amount which the clients give; but there is a suggested minimum donation of £100 for a single Will and £150 for two basic wills (for married couples).

Please help us to raise lots of money for our local Hospice

Lever & Co.'s Goodwill recognised by Will Aid

Age UK's Sharon Maginley, Regional Legacy Officer, paid a visit to Lever & Co of North Street, Bishop's Stortford to thank the staff involved for their hard work during Will Aid 2012 and to present them with a certificate from Will Aid.

Sharon said:
"The Will Aid charities are so grateful for the fantastic support Lever & Co has given the Will Aid campaign. Age UK is the UK's largest charity working with and for older people and our older population is growing every year with demand for our services increasing. We don't know what the future will hold, but we do know that with the support of people who remember us in their wills, we will be able to continue providing much needed services and vital support to help even more people in the future."

The firm raised more than £5,500 for the Will Aid charities by writing around 75 Wills for local clients as part of Will Aid's campaign last November, putting them in the top three fundraising firms in Hertfordshire. Will Aid clients were offered a basic Will and asked to make a donation instead of paying the firm's usual fees. The money raised is shared by ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCIAF, Sightsavers and Trocaire.

This amazing sum is already making a real and lasting difference to the lives of thousands of people in the UK and all over the world, helped by the Will Aid charities. This is a brilliant result and brings the total raised over the years to £7,430.00.

To date, Will Aid 2012 has raised over £1.9m and the final total is expected to reach around £2.1 million.

Angela Lever, Solicitor and Notary Public, has taken part in Will Aid since 1990 whilst working for other firms. In 2011 she set up her own practice, Lever & Co. and has since taken part in the 2011 and 2012 campaigns. She commented on the firm's involvement:

"By taking part in Will Aid, I feel I am giving back to the community. It is so important to have a proper valid Will. Without one the individual is exposed and is leaving the distribution of their estate to the rules of intestacy having no input whatsoever in stating their wishes. These rules cannot deal with complicated family situations and can result in children and partners not being provided for.

I am very pleased to have been so successful. It's involved a lot of hard work as a sole practitioner with a very able assistant managing all the work. But this is offset by knowing so many clients appreciate the excellent service they receive. We can clearly see the funds going to support worthwhile causes."
