At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall,
However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free. To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.
The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and our journalists, so to get full access to all your local news updated 7-days-a-week – PLUS an e-edition of the Arran Banner – subscribe today for as little as 48 pence per week.
Solicitors on Arran are urging people to take advantage of a charity will-writing scheme after demand for wills soars in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Dozens of legal firms in the region have signed up to take part in Will Aid, which officially launched this month, to help meet local need. They included Jas Campbell & Co WS in Brodick, who were the highest donating firm in the area last year, and have signed up for their eighth campaign.
The initiative helps people prepare this important piece of paperwork with a professional during the month of November in exchange for a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
During Will Aid, which takes place across the country during November, legal firms across the region give up some of their time in return for a voluntary donation which is then split between nine of the UK’s best- loved charities.
Jas Campbell & Co WS, who have an office in Brodick, were the highest donating firm in the area last year and have signed up for their eighth campaign.
The suggested voluntary donation for your basic Will Aid will is £100 for a single will and £180 for a pair of mirror wills.
