Will Writing Month 2023

Will Writing Month 2023 v3

Sight Matters and island law firm Callin Wild have partnered for 'Will Writing Month,' a collaborative effort aimed at motivating people on the Isle of Man to create a will.

Throughout November, individuals who mention Sight Matters when using Callin Wild's legal services for Will creation will benefit from a special discount. The cost will be reduced to £200 for individuals and £300 for couples, with 50% of the fees for each will being donated to the charity.

Callin Wild is a highly regarded full-service legal firm with expertise in various areas of general practice.

This initiative is designed to emphasise the significance of having a Will and to inspire more local residents to take steps towards creating one in 2023. Simultaneously, it will generate funds for Sight Matters.

Marc Furness, Partner at Callin Wild, explains that, "a Will not only empowers you to determine how your finances, property, and personal possessions are dealt with after your passing, but also enables parents to decide who will look after and care for their children if they are minors when their parents pass away”.

He goes on to emphasise the importance of having a Will, highlighting that without one, numerous difficulties can arise, especially for unmarried or non-civil partnership couples.

The 'Will Writing Month' has been established through the partnership of Callin Wild and Sight Matters, with the goal of encouraging more local residents to carefully consider their future and the implications of their passing. Marc emphasises that although it may be uncomfortable to contemplate, having a Will in place is essential, as it gives individuals control over their assets and their distribution.

Peter Marshall, Fundraising and Marketing Lead at Sight Matters, adds his perspective, noting that writing a Will is something they encourage their members to do, as they have witnessed how situations can turn difficult without one. He says, "We are pleased to be continuing this important initiative for another year alongside Callin Wild, and the donations received will help us greatly in continuing to provide the vital services we offer to the Isle's blind and visually impaired community. We know that Callin Wild have procedures in place to hep blind and visually impaired people requiring their services; as such, they are a natural choice to partner with on this scheme."
