Writing Your Will

Writing a Will gives you the peace of mind that your affairs are in order. After taking care of your loved ones, writing a Will can also be an opportunity to leave a lasting gift to the causes that you care most about. At Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, gifts in Wills can transform the lives of the hundreds of vulnerable animals that come through our doors every year.

How to Write A Will

Step One: Contact a solicitor to help you draw up your Will. Some solicitors provide free will writing and amendment services for charity. McClure Solicitors offer free Will writing services, free Will review, and half price Power of Attorney in exchange for a charitable donation. Visit their website or call 0800 852 1999 for more information.

Step Two: If you wish to leave a gift in your Will to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, you will need to include the following details:

  • Our name: Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home
  • Our address: 26 Seafield Road East, Edinburgh EH15 1EH
  • Our registered charity number: SC006914

Step Three:  Appoint the executors of your Will. These are the individuals you choose to make sure that the wishes set out in your Will are carried out.

Step Four: Let us know if you have included the Home in your Will by filling out this form.   We rely on gifts in Wills to continue our vital work and knowing we have been included in your Will can help us plan for the future.

Free Will Writing Services

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has partnered with McClure Solicitors to offer a range of Will services, free of charge. These schemes enable our supporters to put their affairs in order in exchange of a small donation, and to consider leaving a gift in their Will to the Home.

Free Wills for Charity: McClure Solicitors will offer help and advice, and prepare your Will, free of charge. All that is asked in return is that you make a donation of your choice to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.

Free Will Reviews: Research has shown that one in three Wills are defective or of poor quality. If it has been some time since you have made a Will, or your circumstances have changed, yours may benefit from a professional review.

Half Price Powers of Attorney: Power of Attorney is an important document that allows someone to act for you if you become unable to make decisions or act for yourself. In association with Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, McClures is offering the preparation of Powers of Attorney at half price (£180). You are asked to consider a donation to the Home.

Contact McClure Solicitors: If you are interested in taking advantage of these services, please contact the team at McClure Solicitors by calling 0800 852 1999 or emailing contactus@mcclure-solicitors.com
