Throughout March, four firms of Southport solicitors will write your will and ask only for a donation to the Southport Offshore Rescue Trust.

Brighouses, Cockshot Peck Lewis, Mawdsleys and Richard Jacklin already participate annually in WillAid, which supports nine national charities each November, however they have all generously agreed to support the Southport Lifeboat throughout all of March in a similar scheme.

WillAid, set up in 1988, is a charity will-writing scheme designed to reinforce the need for everyone to have a professionally drawn-up will. Participating solicitors then donate the fee for their services to the selected charities.

Southport Offshore Rescue Trust is the charity which operates the Southport Lifeboat. Independent of the RNLI, the Trust relies totally on donations and fundraising to support itself to provide a first class life saving service.Â

The scheme runs between the 1st and 31st March, with bookings already being taken. All of the funds raised are going towards building a new Lifeboat House that will replace the existing building which is over 125 years old.

A recommended donation for a single will is £90 (joint £135), and this will go completely towards the New boathouse Appeal. Southport Lifeboat is run entirely by volunteers with no paid employees.

For more information on how you can have your will written by local professionals, whilst having the knowledge that the fee will be used to save lives in the local area, contact one of your local solicitors during March.
