MORE than 100,000 people in Warrington say they haven’t got around to making a will.

New research carried out on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support has revealed that more than 62 per cent of adults in the north west, including around 102,000 in Warrington, do not have a will.

Not having a will can lead to chaos, confusion and distress for family members who are left to sort out money and possessions and second guess their loved one’s wishes say the charity.

Macmillan’s ‘Today’s the Day’ campaign is encouraging people to make a start by offering UK adults a free will.

“We’ve made making a simple, standard will free, easy and quick for most people by using one of our highly-regarded will-writing partners,” says Craig Fordham, Macmillan’s director of legacies.

“This will help people make sure their family and friends, and the charities they care about, receive what they want to give them.”

The charity hopes people signing up for its free will service will also choose to leave a gift in their will to Macmillan, but it’s not a condition of taking up the offer.
