Maghera solicitors supporting the fight against heart disease – Will You?

During the month of November, Mallon McCormick Solicitors in Maghera will be waiving their fee for will-writing services with clients and instead, donating to leading local health charity Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke.

Recent research revealed that 54% of adults do not have a will. The serious implications of this include making an already difficult time for families more stressful. Young people who have just married, bought homes or become parents are amongst those who are likely to be unaware of the importance of the issue.

Now, Mallon McCormick Solicitors are encouraging local people to meet with their team to realise the benefits of ensuring peace of mind for their family in the future.

Joe Mallon, Partner at Mallon McCormick Solicitors said, “We are proud to be involved in this initiative during National Will Month in November. It is important that wills are reviewed regularly and kept up to date, as significant life events will change people’s circumstances – marriage even invalidates an existing will. We are calling on people to combine using our services to make or update their will, with supporting a very deserving local charity.”

Jackie Trainor, Director of Income Generation at Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke added, “There are around 74,000 people living with heart disease across Northern Ireland and it accounts for 40% of all local deaths. The donation of the £75 fee will pay for one person living with heart disease to attend our new Heart Strong programme for one week. We are pleased to have Mallon McCormick on board to kickstart this initiative, which is a first for Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke, and we appreciate their kind support of our Heart Strong campaign.”
