A will to collect charity cash

A MORPETH solicitor is offering his will-writing skills for free as part of a national charity initiative.

Michael Gaunt, of Brumell and Sample in Bridge Street, is taking part in Will Aid.

The scheme, which runs throughout November, sees solicitors waive their normal will fees in return for a donation to help support nine UK charities, including Age UK, Christian Aid and Save The Children.

The suggested donation is £90 for a single will, £135 for mirror wills or £40 for changes to a previous document. People are urged to book appointments early. Contact Mr Gaunt on 01670 512336. For other solicitors in the scheme, visit www.willaid.org.uk or call 0300 030 0013.
