Farnworth Rose Offer Free Wills with Cancer Research UK
Farnworth Rose Solicitors have partnered with Cancer Research UK to offer free single or mirror wills for anyone over the age of 55.
“Cancer Research UK is a charity close to our hearts at Farnworth Rose and we’re delighted to have joined the scheme. In the UK less than 50% of the adult population have made a Will and without one, you have no say in how your assets will be divided.
“For unmarried couples, the situation can be more complex. Many people still believe there such as thing as a ‘common law’ marriage, yet this has no legal standing and therefore unmarried partners have no automatic legal rights to each other’s estates on death” said Amanda Coates, Solicitor.
Are you eligible for the Cancer Research UK Free Wills Offer?
The free Wills scheme covers the cost of a basic Will for anyone over the age of 55 and for a mirror Will with a partner just one person must be aged over 55. Whilst the majority of people who take up the offer do leave a legacy to the charity there is no obligation to do so.

The impact of Cancer Research UK
Progress in research has seen survival rates for children’s cancer more than double since the 1960s and men with testicular cancer having close to a 100 per cent chance of beating the disease. And women diagnosed with breast cancer are now twice as likely to survive their disease as those diagnosed 40 years ago.
Saturday Will appointments now available at Farnworth Rose
At Farnworth Rose, we have also announced an extension to our services by offering Saturday morning Will appointments at our Barrowford office.
“We understand that some clients find it difficult to get to our offices during working hours and this can be one reason people don’t prioritise making a Will.
“We want to take that issue away and ensure that there’s no excuse for not having this important document correctly drafted by a professional” continued Amanda.
