ARBROATH Football Club has teamed up with Thorntons law firm to launch their annual wills campaign.

During the month of November, Thorntons will donate its fee from all wills created or updated to Cash for Kids, the Radio Tay charity. 
And to launch this year’s initiative, Arbroath manager Paul Sheerin was the first to make a will at the town’s office in Brothockbank House.

Paul said: “Thorntons annual wills month is always a great success. The money it raises goes to helping some of the most vulnerable children in our community and that support is vital.

“It’s amazing that so many that so many problems can arise from not having a will in place. It is a relatively quick and easy process that Thorntons can take you through and I would encourage everyone to consider creating a will this month.”

While George Dunlop, partner at Thorntons, added: “It was great to welcome Paul into Thorntons to launch our annual wills campaign.

“We are dedicated to raising as much money as possible for an extremely deserving local cause, as well as stressing the importance of having a current will. 

“Issues like cost, delays and family disputes could all be avoided if there was a will available and many people don’t realise the legal ramifications of not having this document.

“Your wishes are important and need to be properly set out in the document which can be referred to in the event of your passing.

“We urge the local community to get behind this year’s campaign and also support Cash for Kids.”

The firm has been running its charity wills in November since 1996 and has raised more than £140,000 for various charities throughout the past 16 years.
