Forward-looking initiative is offering affordable Wills for South Coast Residents

A national charity has joined forces with a number of local south coast solicitors for an initiative that offers affordable Will creation in exchange for charitable donations.

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) ‘Make a Will Fortnight’ project sees solicitors firms across Portsmouth, Plymouth and the Isle of Wight waive their fees on standard Wills. In exchange, those who require the creation of a Will are instead encouraged to make a charitable donation to the RNRMC.

‘Make a Will Fortnight’ will commence on February 12th and will run until February 25th. Due to high demand, potential clients are encouraged to enquire as soon as possible.

Victory Walk – First 500

Looking back on the first 500 miles (Portsmouth to Hullbridge, Essex) of the Victory Walk, the main difficulty is remembering where I’ve been! Being on the move almost every day means that the walk becomes a blizzard of place names, each to be reached, passed and left behind.

Perhaps the two most difficult things to leave behind were Navy Command HQ with the ongoing WRNS100 demands, and Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower. It took 60 miles and Selsey Bill before the Tower eventually disappeared behind me! WRNS100 did not conclude until mid-December, with a superb reception for 100 serving and veteran naval women in the Speaker’s House, Palace of Westminster. Shortly afterwards I broke for a Christmas break in a cosy rented cottage in Kent.
