THE Barnardo’s shop in Alfreton is promoting the charity’s Free Will writing service as part of the UK’s largest joint charity campaign, Remember A Charity Week, until Monday, September 18.
During the week, representatives from local law firm Quality Solicitors Chapman & Chubb will be in the Institute Lane shop offering free and impartial advice about making a Will and participating in the Barnardo’s Free Will Scheme.
Barnardo’s supports some of the most vulnerable children in the UK, children whose lives are shattered by neglect, abuse and family breakdown, exclusion from education or poor access to training and employment.
Said Dylan Carroll who manages the Barnardo’s Free Will Scheme, said: “Almost half of Barnardo’s income from the general public is donated through Wills and the money raised is vital to help Barnardo’s continue its work with deprived children. “The scheme aims to make more people aware of the benefits of writing a will.”
