The Parish Trust is pleased to announce that we are working in partnership with Kingsman Associates to offer members of our community a free simple Will.
Kingsman Associates is a local Wills and Estate Planning company based in Risca.
Why should you make a Will?
A Will is a legal document in which you set out what you would like to happen to your estate when you die. There are some circumstances in which it is especially important to make a Will. These include: if you have children or other financial dependents; if you are not married but want your partner to inherit from your estate; or if you want to leave assets to anyone outside your immediate family.
If you have children under 18, you could appoint a guardian in your Will who would be responsible for looking after them in the case of your death. If you don’t appoint a guardian, the courts may decide who cares for your children.
If you do not make a Will, you will be considered to have died ‘intestate’. This means that your estate will be distributed under the laws of intestacy; a strict set of rules which set out which of your family members receive your assets and in which order. If you had no surviving relatives, your estate would go to the Crown.
To qualify for the free simple Will all we ask if you leave a small legacy to The Parish Trust in your Will or make a donation direct to them.
The Parish Trust is immensely grateful to Kingsman Associates for recognising that this vital service is very much needed. Rev. Dean Aaron Roberts, Chair of Trustees, said,
“On behalf of the charity I want to thank the team at Kingsman Associates for both raising the profile of The Parish Trust and the need for everyone to have access to a Will writing service. There is a worrying lack of awareness of the need for every person to have an authoritative document, checked by legal experts, that details their final wishes in the event of a person’s death. This document ensures that affairs of childcare and estate are carried out appropriately. We hope that many people will take Kingsman Associates up on the very kind offer.”
It’s never too early to start thinking about making a Will so to find out more please call Kingsman Associates on 01633 987072 and quote Parish Trust., or find them online.
