Over 27 million adults in the UK currently do not have a Will. Harrogate International Festivals is working with McCormicks Solicitors to give you the opportunity to have your Will written in return for a donation to the Festivals. 

How it works

The Make A Will Month scheme is intended for supporters of the Festivals and your Will needs to be relatively simple.

To take part and have your Will written in exchange for a donation to Harrogate International Festivals contact McCormicks Solicitors in Harrogate and arrange an appointment to see Elaine Lightfoot in February, quoting ‘Harrogate International Festivals Make A Will Month’.

At the appointment, your solicitor will give you a donation envelope and a copy of this form. Seal your donation, along with your completed form in this envelope and give it to the solicitor who will return it to Harrogate International Festivals.

McCormicks Solicitors have generously agreed to give up their time for free in return for your donation. We are not asking for a minimum donation, however as an arts charity with no core funding who seek to change lives through the arts we do ask you to please give as generously as you can.

A standard Will can cost from £150 before VAT.

A Lasting Legacy

You may choose to leave a gift in your Will to Harrogate International Festivals while you are using this service. You don’t have to. But we do hope you’ll consider it. Any gift you leave, no matter what size, will play an important part in helping us to continue our vital work transforming lives through the arts into the future.

If this is something you would like to consider, please ask your solicitor for further information.
