Where there's a will, there's a way for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity

Elspeth Wilson and Georgina Roberts with Coffee Club presenter Helen SestanRadio Clatterbridge listeners have been told how they can help a charity based on the health park while finally doing something they may have been putting off for years.

Georgina Roberts from Heswall-based Guy Williams Layton solicitors came into the studio to talk about drawing up wills.

She was joined by Elspeth Wilson from The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity which has a special agreement to benefit from donations made during the process all year round.

Georgina, who is also an expert in powers of attorney and the administration of estates, explained how patients at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre can make a will in exchange for a £100 donation to the charity.

The document will also be stored free of charge in a fire-proof cabinet.

The money will go towards the new hospital building in Liverpool and improvements to the Wirral site.

Georgina advised listeners to draw up a will as soon as they have children or own anything of value.

“I think a will helps those people left behind. It's a comfort to know these are your wishes and there is no ambiguity.”

Georgina explained to Coffee Club presenters Ian Grant and Helen Sestan about the current legislation regarding inheritance tax.

She also warned people to avoid making a home-made will and advised on what could happen to their estates if they don’t have a will.
