‘Make a Will’ Fundraiser returns in September

West Sussex charity 4Sight Vision Support has announced it will be running its Make a Will Fundraising Scheme again in September this year.

This follows on the success of the first Make a Will fundraiser that raised over £2000. 

People living in West Sussex can have their Wills or Lasting Powers of Attorney written free by experts at Kreston Reeves in return for a donation to the charity.  

The scheme begins with a session giving participants the opportunity to talk and ask questions about different types of Wills, Inheritance Tax, Trusts in Wills, Codicils and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Later in the month any participants who wish to can then take part in the Make a Will Scheme itself. 

Making a Will is essential to ensure that your money and possessions will go to the people, places and charities that you care about. It is particularly important if you have dependent children and for recording your wishes with regard to pets and funeral plans. This helps family and friends take care of your affairs more easily. Lasting Powers of Attorney are also important in case you lose the capacity to make decisions for yourself. 

4Sight Vision Support provides support and specialist information to blind and sight impaired residents throughout the county. 

Fundraising Manager Julie Branson said:

“4Sight Vision Support would like to sincerely thank the staff at Kreston Reeves for donating their time for free once again this year. As a result, we hope to raise a substantial amount to help our work supporting those with sight loss across West Sussex.”
