We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the community who has so far signed up to create a Free Will in aid of Marie Curie.
We hope that by working together, we can generate a substantial amount of future income for the charity.
Locally Marie Curie provide care and support to individuals and families, living with a terminal illness in the comfort of their own home. Last year Marie Curie supported over 8,000 people in Scotland, over 200 nurses work for Marie Curie and they also have hospices in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Dorothy Scullion from Scullion LAW said ‘Marie Curie is a charity close to our hearts. Their kind nurses cared for our dear aunt Margaret in Motherwell during her final days… so we shall be forever grateful’.
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.”
Nicholas Scullion QUOTES ‘Since 2015 the Wills & Future Planning team at Scullion LAW have helped nearly 600 people across Lanarkshire and Glasgow make a FREE-WILL in aid of Marie Curie. This is part of our continued commitment to the community and in recognition of the great work Marie Curie do for those living with a terminal illness. As little as £20 helps to pay for an hour of nursing care. This is the fourth and most successful year so far running this scheme, and we encourage anyone who does not have a Will aged 55 and over to call us. You can access the Wills questionnaire via the Wills and Future planning section of our website under MARIE CURIE and you can make an appointment to speak to one our experienced solicitors at a time that suits you. Please note our scheme officially ends 31 March but if you call today, we can take appointments throughout April. Having a valid Will ensures your wishes are met in the future, and it also makes life easier for you those you leave behind. So we encourage everyone to seize this opportunity to make a Free Will to protect the people and things that matter most to you’.

Claire Stevenson, an experienced Wills & Future Planning Lawyer at Scullion LAW 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. We can also advise you about the ways you can protect vulnerable or disabled beneficiaries, ensuring that appropriate arrangements are in place for your children or whether your estate is likely to be subject to inheritance tax. If you already have a Will in place we recommend you update it every 5 years or whenever your personal circumstances change through divorce, separation, death, birth of grandchildren, or when you buy or sell property. An up to date Will makes it easier for your friends and family in the future. Scullion LAW are offering you a FREE Will throughout February and March in aid of Marie Curie and we hope you will sign up’.
