LCF is partnering with Ison Harrison throughout September, to offer free Will writing sessions for people who want to give something back to their local communities.

It is estimated that of the 75% of the population who give to charity, only 7% leave a gift in their Will, mostly to large well-known charities. This means that local grass-roots charities are generally overlooked, despite the vital role they play in transforming the lives of those in need in our communities.

We have been approached by individuals who want to ensure their street, their community and their city continues to thrive after they’re gone, to benefit their children and grandchildren, so we have teamed up with Ison Harrison to develop a free Will writing service and would encourage you to consider a gift to Leeds Community Foundation to help those most in need in our city.

 Together we aim to create a city of opportunity for all.

Will writing sessions need to be booked in advance and will last around 20 minutes. Available sessions and booking details are highlighted below.

More information about free Will writing sessions can be found here. To book call 0113 242 2426 or email info@leedscf.org.uk stating your preferred date and time.

Not sure you need a will, read on for Ison Harrison’s top 10 reasons for getting a will:

  1. Whatever you may think you are going to die, fact.
  2. Make sure that the people you want to inherit do inherit.
  3. Make sure that the people you don’t want to inherit don’t inherit.
  4. Avoid Inheritance Tax.
  5. Avoid Nursing Home fees.
  6. Make sure, by the appropriate use of trusts, that the right people control your money so that beneficiaries don’t fritter away what you have worked for.
  7. Provide for vulnerable beneficiaries such as disabled children.
  8. Avoid arguments and expensive court proceedings after you have gone.
  9. Make sure your ex doesn’t receive or control your estate.
  10. Give you peace of mind (and stop people like us telling you need a will).
