It's the fourth year that Scullion Law has worked with the charity.

Those who have already bequeathed cash gifts have guaranteed a significant stream of revenue in years to come.

The campaign is open to anyone aged over 55.

If couples reside at the same address only one person needs to be over 55 to qualify.

SIGNIFICANT STREAM

Nicholas Scullion is managing Partner of Scullion Law.

He said: "Since 2015, we have helped to generate a substantial amount of future income for Marie Curie.

"As well as specific cash gifts, some clients left a share of their estate in their Will.

"As little as £20 helps to pay for an hour of nursing care.

"There is of course no obligation for clients to leave anything.

"We want to thank the kind individuals within the community who have helped us support Marie Curie so far."

'NO OBLIGATION'

He added: "This is the fourth successful year running the Free-Will scheme.

"By continuing to work together we can make a massive difference to the lives of people living with a terminal illness in our community."

Claire Stevenson is an experienced wills lawyer at Scullion Law.

She said: "We often meet people who are unaware that unless you make a will, the law dictates what happens to your property, money and possessions when you die and very often this isn’t in keeping with what people want.

"I would therefore encourage everyone in the community to take make a will to ensure your personal wishes for the future are clear."

Hazel Crombie, Marie Curie Legacy Advisor said: “Thank you to Scullion Law for supporting us with the free Will scheme.

"By choosing to leave a gift in your Will to Marie Curie, you’re helping provide vital care and support to people living with a terminal illness.”
