This is a good idea. I knew there was a Legacy Promotion group started in Ireland, although I havent seen much of them and Im not sure if this is part of the same?
Free Wills Month Ireland brings together seven Irish charities that provide vital services to the community to offer members of the public aged 55 and over the opportunity to have their Will written or updated free of charge by using the services of local solicitors in five towns and cities.
Between 1-30 April 2009 participating firms of solicitors in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Waterford and Wexford will be offering their specialist Will-writing services to members of the public, with the seven Free Wills Month charities paying for the work to be done.
Shame the solicitors arent waiving fees! Hope they are doing a good deal on fees. I wonder will they extend the scheme, its almost the end of April and its the 1st I have heard of it (thanks to Paul Artherton)
The 7 charities sponsoring Free Wills Month Ireland are Age Action Ireland, The Children’s Medical & Research Foundation, Irish Heart Foundation, Irish Hospice Foundation, MS Society Ireland and Oxfam Ireland and the RNLI.
