Where There's a Will, There's a Way.

Leading legal specialists Thomas Bradley & Co. have come up with a novel way to support their partner charities during the COVID-19 lockdown.


They’re offering anyone over the age of 50 a free Will and a half-price Power of Attorney in exchange for making a donation.


The likes of Adopt A Child, PDSA, Visibility Scotland, and the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice will receive support through this initiative — although clients can also donate to a charity close to their heart.


Thomas Bradley’s Managing Partner, Scott Ewart, says that supporting the charities in this way was an easy decision to make: “These are challenging times we’re living through, and it’s served to highlight the value of family and community. We wanted to find a way to fundraise for our partner charities, while also bringing attention to the importance of later life planning and, in particular, the need for having a Will and a Power of Attorney in place. By offering a free Will in exchange for a donation, we can help make a small difference to the wider community, and offer peace of mind to families across Inverclyde.”


Scott has also noticed a demand for his firm’s expertise during the current health crisis: “The pandemic has brought later life planning into sharp focus. Because the coronavirus has largely affected the older population, we’ve had many calls from people asking to have Wills drafted and a Power of Attorney put in place.”


Thinking about our own mortality is never an easy thing to do — but it is vital, as Scott explains: “By creating a Will, you can control how your estate is dealt with after you’re gone. It ensures your wishes are taken into consideration, and also makes things a little easier for your loved ones. Likewise, a Power of Attorney is something that many people should arrange now, while they’re fit and healthy — especially during a global health crisis. Although it’s not as well-known as a Will, a Power of Attorney is just as important. It’s a legal document that allows an appointed person to make decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to do so. This is often used for longer-term issues that affect your mental capacity, such as dementia. But it can also be applied in a temporary situation, which is what we’re seeing now, with people being admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 and needing help paying the bills.”



If you’d like to make a donation to charity and receive your free Will and half-price Power of Attorney, simply call 0330 390 9200 to arrange an appointment with Thomas Bradley & Co.
