Wooden Spoon announces partnership with Asset Harbour

DESPITE the importance of making a Will and the far-reaching consequences of not having a Will, it tends to be one of the most overlooked legal documents in the UK. Wooden Spoon has partnered with Asset Harbour, an Estate Planning Services company, who offer guidance on Gifts in Wills and Legacies. As a Partner of Wooden Spoon they can ensure the correct Will is in place and will make a donation to the charity if you choose to use their services.

Asset Harbour’s Managing Director, Mark Wilde, comments; “Writing a Will is something that we all know we should do but just never seem to actually do. I can’t think of many words that can immediately switch people off or make them feel a little uncomfortable. Worryingly, every year the number of people in the UK that do not have a Will goes up and up – Government figures indicate that almost 30 million adults in the UK have not made a Will.

“However, should you die without a Will in place your loved ones may not benefit in the way that you or they would have hoped? Instead, your assets will be divided under the Governments laws of intestacy. Meaning that you are not in control of how your estate is divided.”

To help with creating or updating a Will, Wooden Spoon has put together some guidance on ‘Gifts in Wills‘.

If you would like more detailed advice we have partnered with Asset Harbour, an established Estate Planning Services company who are members of the Society of Will Writers and comply with their Code of Practice. You are under no obligation to use the services of Asset Harbour, however if you choose to, the charity will receive a donation (refer to Wooden Spoon when making contact). You can also email Mark on wills@assetharbour.com

Mark Wilde, Managing Director at Asset Harbour, commented;

By becoming a Partner of Wooden Spoon we can not only ensure the correct Will is in place and potentially leave a Legacy, but we make a contribution directly back to the charity. I am very pleased that we have been chosen to support Wooden Spoon.
