Here at the AKU Society we are committed to providing a wide range of support and advice to our patients and supporters. Recommended to us by one of our patients, we have partnered with McClure Solicitors, a nation-wide law firm, to offer our supporters three key services for free or at a discounted rate: free will writing, free will reviews and half price Power of Attorney.
These services would normally cost £150 for a single client and £240 for a couple. In return, all they ask is that you consider making a donation to the AKU Society. This is a great way to give yourself peace of mind for the future and support our work at the same time - win win!
McClure have offices in 7 UK locations, but also offer home consultations. Our ex-CEO, Oliver Timmis, and Trustee, Colleen Addicott, recently met with a McClure advisor to write their own Wills. Colleen reflects on how the experience was for her:
"I have to admit that we had put off will writing a number of times...It seemed like a lot of hassle and tended to slip down the list of priorities. My husband and I took the opportunity to make a donation to the AKU Society and have our Wills done at the same time through McClure solicitors. I am so glad we did! It was actually very straightforward...a few questions and a two sided form. Even with a few complexities in our case, it was completed very quickly. Paul , our advisor, provided really helpful insight and we set up Lasting Powers of Attorney at the same time as our wills. We now have peace of mind and were able to make a donation to the AKU Society at the same time...win-win!"
