Will Aid

Written by: Edward Danks
11 November 2022

Paris Steele is delighted to be taking part in the Will Aid campaign in November 2022. Will Aid is a partnership between solicitors and nine of the UK’s best loved charities nominated by Will Aid. Every year, in November, Will Aid, in conjunction with law firms, run a fundraising campaign to support nine UK charities. Paris Steele will again be wholeheartedly supporting this year’s event.

How does Will Aid work?

We will prepare a basic Will for interested clients and, instead of taking a fee for the work, will invite clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid. The suggested level of donation is £100 for a single Will or £180 for mirror Wills but you can, of course, donate more if you wish.

Once your Will has been completed and the donation paid, we will then send all donations raised to Will Aid. There are no administrative deductions and all money raised will be sent on to Will Aid.

If your Will is complex or complicated, any additional work will be charged separately, and we will discuss this with you in advance.

Which Charities are being supported?

The nine charities being supported by Will Aid this year are:

We believe this is an excellent range of charities that warrant your support. Edward Danks, Partner, said:

We are very excited to be involved again in the Will Aid campaign this year. It means we can help raise funds for nine incredible charities which make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of vulnerable people here in the UK and around the world”.

Our efforts raised £3,325 for Will Aid in 2021, taking our total to an incredible £14,578 since 2006.
