Around 36% of people over the age of 55 in the UK do not have a valid Will in place. Wills are important legal documents and without them, everything that people accumulate throughout their life may go to the wrong people in the event of their death. So why not take this opportunity to get your Will written or reviewed for FREE – and help support our local charity work at the same time.

McClure Solicitors prepare Wills free of charge, all they ask is: ‘Just consider a donation, of any size, to Age Connects Cardiff & the Vale’.

Alison Huggins, the local Estate Planning Consultant and Solicitor at McClure’s Cardiff office explains: ‘Everyone needs a Will – don’t leave it until it is too late; and a Power of Attorney goes hand-in-hand with a Will – and McClure’s offer this at probably the best value in the UK. As well as our Free Will service, McClure offer free legal advice for estate planning, which means getting yourself sorted for later in life. We will help you get your affairs in order and protect your family assets that you have taken years to build up’.

If you already have a Will, well done you, but is it correct and up to date? Research shows that 1 in 4 Wills are either defective or of poor quality. McClure carry out free safety checks and, if necessary, will update or correct your Will for FREE.

Karen Steele, Marketing and Partnerships Manager at Age Connects Cardiff & the Vale asks, ‘Why not take this opportunity to find out more about Will Writing and Legal Planning, at our Live “Planning for the Future” Talk on Tuesday 6th October 2020 at 12:30pm?

‘The talk will cover all you need to know for later life planning: Wills, Powers of Attorney, Trusts, and other legal services you may not have heard of - but you will be glad you tuned in. It is 30 minutes and will be followed by a Live Question and Answer session when you can ask questions and get advice from a Solicitor with 50 years’ experience. It’s completely FREE and there’s no obligation whatsoever. We can even provide assistance on how to join us via video link if you haven’t done this before - so don’t worry about that’.

To register for the Live Talk just go to or call 02920 683 604 to find out more.
