Anyone who hasn’t made a will can have one drawn up and help charity at the same time, thanks to a new initiative.
Throughout September help is at hand thanks to a scheme launched by charity Manx Cancer Help and law firm Gelling Johnson Farrant.
Customers can arrange to visit the firm’s offices at 24 Athol Street, Douglas, during the month and have a straightforward Will written in exchange for a minimum donation to Manx Cancer Help of £75.
As well as having peace of mind that your affairs are in order, you will be helping the charity continue its essential work in the island.
Established in 1983, Manx Cancer Help provides emotional support and counselling for cancer patients, their families, carers and friends. It offers a series of free, confidential sessions, face-to-face and over the phone, to anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis.
Marc Furness from Gelling Johnson Farrant said: ‘We approached Manx Cancer Help and suggested setting up the scheme as we believe that it provides an excellent opportunity for us to support a Manx charity whilst at the same time helping convey the importance of making a Will. We certainly hope that the scheme will be a success and help raise significant funds for Manx Cancer Help and that this will be the start of a successful partnership between ourselves and Manx Cancer Help.’
MCH fundraising co-ordinator Ally Martin added: ‘It may not be something we like talking about, but having a properly prepared Will is really important to make sure those you care about are provided for.”
‘We are absolutely delighted Gelling Johnson Farrant is offering people the chance to have their Will professionally written during September in exchange for a donation to Manx Cancer Help. We rely on donations and bequests to continue our work, and this initiative allows people to look after those they care for and at the same time help us to care for people in the Isle of Man.’
