Chance with Red Cross to put good will to family’s future

ANYONE who needs to make or update their will should mark September 25 in their calendar, as this is the day Red Cross is coming to the Noosa area with its highly successful Wills for Life program.

Red Cross runs over 60 Community Wills Days across Australia each year.

Ian Williamson, national bequest manager for Red Cross, says: "Writing a will is one of the most important things you will ever do in your lifetime, and yet just under half of Australian adults still do not have one.

"Most of us work hard to maximise our financial position for retirement, but it's surprising how many fail to make a will," he said.

"What can happen is that someone you don't even know may end up controlling your estate and prized investments.

"The Red Cross Wills for Life program has so far helped over 5000 Australians get their affairs in order with a new or updated will, and many have confirmed a gift in their will to Red Cross.

"It really does pay to take some time to ensure that your assets are dealt with the way you want."

Mr Williamson said Red Cross Community Wills Days were a great opportunity to get your personal affairs in order.

"It is also a chance to consider helping out a great cause," he said.

"We know that in years to come hundreds of thousands of people will turn to Red Cross for help and we are determined to be there when they do.

"That's why we ask that when you make your will, and after you have provided for your loved ones, you consider supporting Red Cross.

"A gift in your will to Red Cross will help us in our everyday work in Australia and around the world."
