Law firm Bridge McFarland, which has an office in Louth, has handed over more than £1,400 to local charities after a charity Will-writing campaign. The firm has donated £20 for every Will it signed during the month of January.

The organisations which benefitted were When You Wish Upon a Star, St Andrews Hospice, Louth & District Help for the Homeless and the Linkage Community Trust.

Each charity received a cheque for £355.

According to research carried out by a financial advice website more than 30 million adults in the UK do not have a Will.

The website also revealed that more than a third (36 per cent) of those aged over 55 have yet to make a Will.

Dying without a Will means the Government will decide the order of who gets what from your estate – and if no one comes forward then the Government will take the lot.

“It’s really important for people to think seriously about making a Will to ensure their wishes are followed and their families are left secure,” said Patrick Purves, Head of the Private Client Department at Bridge McFarland.

“It’s also a time when many people think about leaving a legacy for charities and we wanted to do something that encouraged people to make a Will and helped local organisations too.

“The four charities we have chosen all do fantastic work for the community and we are delighted to be able to support them.”
