Best Will Week

Best Will Week is an initiative run by www.Mylegacy.ie which takes place every October to highlight the importance of leaving a gift in your will and the difference a gift in your will to a charity can make.

During Best Will Week, people can make an appointment with a participating solicitor for an initial will consultation.

People interested in making their will, or updating an existing will, are asked to consider leaving a gift to their favourite charity once loved ones have been taken care of.

To find a list of participating solicitors please visit www.mylegacy.ie.
