Michael and Noni, a local couple, had been talking about making their wills for years but never got around to it. In 2023, they finally decided it was time and went through the process using Step One Charity’s Make a Will Week. They were pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of the process and the friendliness of the solicitors.
“We phoned and made an appointment with the solicitor, and they said we had to bring a passport or something for ID.
We went along to the appointment, and we met Becca. She was very nice and put us at our ease.
We discussed what we wanted to put in the will, and she explained the different kinds and implications of the things we wanted to do and how best to do it.
Then she wrote it all down and sent it to us. We looked at it and made sure it was ok and it was what we discussed.
Following that we made another appointment to go and see her and sign the document.
It was all very simple, very friendly and very straightforward.
We’re really glad we took part in the scheme. It encouraged us to do something we’d been meaning to do for a long time, and it made us get on with it and do it.”
