Free Wills Month Campaign
The aim is for members of the public aged 55 and over to have their Wills drawn up or updated for free by requesting an appointment with a participating solicitor within the month of October. A specialist solicitor draws up the Will and in return they ask that you consider leaving a gift in your Will to one or more of the charities that Free Wills Month supports. This year the charities they support are Breakthrough Brest Cancer, British Heart Foundation, Guide Dogs, Prostate Cancer UK, Redwings Horse Sanctuary, Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Stroke Association, UNICEF and WWF-UK.
We participated in the campaign last year and are taking part again this year. Making a Will is the first step in putting your affairs in order and with the Free Wills Month campaign you can plan for the future and have that peace of mind.

Macmillan Big Coffee Mornings
On Monday 1st October staff at the Castleford office held a Macmillan coffee morning with the money going to Macmillan Cancer Support. We would like to say a big thank you to all those who attended and donated (including members of the public). And to those who slaved over a hot stove to produce the delicious spread. A total of £117.17 was raised!
On Thursday 3rd October staff at the Wakefield office held a Macmillan coffee morning. The raffle (which covered two window sills and a table) opened at 11am and it didn’t take long for all the prizes to go! As well as a lot of the staff being generous enough to donate raffle prizes some baked cakes, a tradition that started on Red Nose Day. £110.50 was added to the Castleford total.
