Will Aid Call

Thursday October 27

The former head of Christian Aid Scotland, Kathy Galloway (pictured), has urged people to consider using the Will Aid service this November.

Under the scheme, established in Scotland 28 years ago, solicitors waive their fees for drafting or updating wills in exchange for a voluntary donation (suggested at £95 for a basic single will and £150 for mirror wills for a couple) which benefits Christian Aid and eight other charities. Last year Will Aid raised in the region of £1 million.

Kathy said: "When I heard about Will Aid some years ago I thought it was such a good idea. Having a will is important as it means your wishes are clear and your family have peace of mind knowing everything is in place when you are no longer here to tell them. I don’t have much to leave but it was also important to me to include gifts in my will to the organisations close to my heart, acknowledging the things important to me during my life, after my death. My mother is my inspiration, as she did the same in her will."

To find out if a solicitor near you is taking part, enter your postcode at or call Jo Dallas, Christian Aid Scotland’s legacy and in memory co-ordinator, on 0141 2416139.
