Smith & Valentine solicitors in Stranraer has nominated St John Scotland as their chosen charity for their annual "Willing to help" campaign.
The campaign means that anyone wishing to make a Will during May, rather than paying the usual fee, will instead be invited to make a donation to St John Scotland in West Galloway.
The usual fee is £100 for a single Will and £150 for a pair of mirror Wills. However, this is very much a guide and the donor can decide how much to give. All donations will be passed in full to St John Scotland, and UK taxpayers can enhance their donations by 25p in the pound by filling out a Gift Aid declaration.
In West Galloway, our team of volunteers co-ordinate a Patient Transport service which helps people undergoing cancer treatment travel from the area to the Central Belt for treatment. They also support the St John Unit with in the Galloway Community Hospital, maintaining a visiting room for the families of patients accessing palliative care.
