Take a moment to make your Will and find peace of mind
It’s one of the most important things you’ll ever do, but so many of us keep putting it off.
We Are Beams Will Week takes place from 22nd-26th February 2021 and is the perfect opportunity to make or update your Will and support We Are Beams at the same time.
“Nearly everyone who comes in to make a Will says, it’s been on my to-do list for years. Generally, people think it’s very complicated, but it really isn’t” explains Andrea Kershaw who is a solicitor at one of our Will Week partners, Thackray Williams, who will waive their usual fee in return for a donation to We Are Beams.
A Will is vital if you wish to be certain as to who will benefit from your money and other possessions when you die.
Without a Will, the law provides as to whom gets what and this may not reflect your real wishes. For example, some people incorrectly assume that on their death everything they own will automatically go to their partner. However, this is not invariably the case and making a Will guarantees your wishes will be met.
In addition, a Will allows you to specify funeral arrangements and to ensure those that you care about, especially children, are provided for and it will give you the opportunity to appoint a guardian for your children.
Having your Will professionally written may also help you to reduce Inheritance Tax.

How it works:
We have teamed up with local solicitors during our Will Week, who waive their usual fee in return for a donation to We Are Beams
Please contact one of our Will Week solicitors directly and quote ‘We Are Beams Will Week’ to make an appointment for your Will to be drawn up.
Each solicitor has a limited number of appointments which must be arranged during Will Week but can take place at a later date. Due to the Covid-19 social interaction restrictions, some of the solicitors listed are only offering telephone or video appointments although they may ask for you to attend for a signing appointment. Please ask for more information when you make the initial phone call during Will Week.
In return for their time, participating solicitors ask that you support We Are Beams with a minimum suggested donation of £125 for a simple Will or £150 for a Mirrored Will. After you have agreed to the new Will with the solicitor, you can make your Will Donation.
