Topsham will info charity event

A Topsham charity is holding a first-of-its-kind event, joining forces with legal and financial experts to hold an evening of legacy and will information.

The Estuary League of Friends has teamed up with Michelmores solicitors and CarterDawes independent financial advisors for the event on Thursday, June 30, at 7pm, in Matthews Hall, Topsham.

On offer during the evening will be information about legacies, wills, inheritance tax and donations to charitable organisations.

Wine and cheese will be served during the informal evening.

Rachel Gilpin, chief executive of the Estuary League of Friends, said: “We believe it’s the first time any charity has organised this kind of event, which we hope will be of interest to individuals and local businesses.

“It’s an important issue we want people to feel at ease discussing. This can be a difficult subject, and one which is often avoided because of sensitivities over bereavement.

“But we believe there is a large amount of interest from people who would feel happier to plan their financial and legal matters while they are still in good health.
