Yorkshire law firm strengthens partnership with Alzheimer’s society

A Yorkshire law firm has strengthened its commitment to helping the Alzheimer’s Society by partnering with the charity for another year and creating wills for people keen to donate or leave a legacy to the charity.

LCF Law has worked with the Alzheimer’s Society for several years and works with dozens of people every year to draw up their will for free, in exchange for a donation to the charity.

Head of personal law, Neil Shaw, explained: “After promoting this partnership to many organisations and community groups throughout Wharfedale, we have had plenty of interest from local people keen to donate or leave a bigger legacy in their will to the charity. We also have a similar partnership with Cancer Research and it’s a great way of supporting two charities that make a real difference to so many people.”

LCF Law also regularly takes part in Saint Michael’s Hospice’s ‘make a will month’, drafting wills without charge in exchange for a donation to the hospice. Neil added: “So many of us have family, friends and colleagues who have been affected by cancer or Alzheimer’s and it’s heart-warming to see first hand the difference these donations make to the charities and hospice.

“Most people understand the importance of making a will, but many don’t find the time to do it. Others wrongfully think they don’t have anything worth inheriting or are frightened of thinking about dying, but we see every day the peace of mind our clients enjoy once their affairs are put in order.”
