News : Local solicitors to donate will writing fee to the Southport Lifeboat

 

Throughout March, four Southport solicitors will write your will and ask only for a donation to the Southport Offshore Rescue Trust.

Brighouses, Cockshot Peck Lewis, Mawdsleys and Richard Jacklin already participate annually in WillAid, which supports nine national charities each November, however they have all generously agreed to support the Southport Lifeboat through all of March in a similar scheme.

WillAid, set up in 1988, is a charity will-writing scheme designed to reinforce the need for everyone to have a professionally drawn-up will. Participating solicitors then donate the fee for their services to the selected charities.

The Southport Offshore Rescue Trust is the charity that operates the Southport Lifeboat. Independent of the RNLI, the Trust relies on donations and fundraising to support itself to provide a first class life saving service. 

The scheme run between the 1st and 31st March, with all funds raised going towards building a new Lifeboat house that will replace the existing building which is over 125 years old.

A recommended donation for a single will is 90, and this will go completely towards the new boathouse appeal, as the Southport Lifeboat is ran entirely by volunteers with no paid employees.

For more information on how you can have your will written by local professionals, whilst having the knowledge that the fee will be used to save lives in the local area, contact one of your local solicitors during March.
