Dear Parents and Leaders,
As many of you may know, 2nd Onchan are currently raising funds to replace the existing toilet block in the Scout Hall as well as providing a new entrance way and roof over the kitchen and cloaks area. Earlier this year our planning application was approved and we now need to raise the anticipated £70,000 required for the works.
As part of this fundraising 2nd Onchan have teamed up with local advocates Callin Wild who are offering, exclusively for those associated with 2nd Onchan, an opportunity to have your Will prepared between now and the end of July 2018. During this time any Parents or Grandparents of a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer Scout, as well as any Leader, Committee member or other individual associated with the Group, can have their Will written by Callin Wild for a reduced fee. At the end of the Wills Event Callin Wild will then make a donation to the Group totally one third of the funds raised.
A Will is one of the most important documents that anyone over the age of 18 can have, it is not something that should be left until the later years of life. I would encourage everyone to have a Will regardless of property ownership or family arrangements. Wills cover much more than just how your assets are to be managed after death, they can include details about funeral arrangements, and importantly, details about how you wish your children to be cared for. They are invaluable documents which record your wishes and limit the scope for any dispute over your assets between surviving family members.
If you already have a Will drafted, but wish to update or amend it, then Callin Wild will also be able to assist and can offer a tailored service in this respect. Please also note that certain changes in personal circumstances, including marriage and divorce, may invalidate any previously drafted Will.
The cost of a single Will is £295 plus VAT. For couples, we have reduced this cost to £395 plus VAT. Again, one third of this will be donated to the Scout Group.
If you have any questions or queries, or wish to make an appointment please do not hesitate to contact me at Callin Wild via telephone 623195 or email email@example.com.
Yours in Scouting,
Alex Armstrong – Cub Scout Leader & Advocate
If you do not make a Will and die intestate, it will be necessary for your family to apply for a Grant of Administration and to appoint an Administrator to settle your affairs in accordance with the current legislation. This may result in your assets going to people you would not wish to benefit and can result in a lot of additional work and expense in, for example, tracing your relatives.
Points to consider?
Wills can be stored in Callin Wild’s safe custody and no further charge is raised for this service.
