EXPERTS at Age UK are encouraging residents over 50s to attend its free Will Surgery in Purbeck.

This service, a one-to-one surgery by appointment only, takes place at Heritage Hall, Pine Martin Grange Care Home, Sandford Road, Sandford, on the last Thursday of each month, 9.30am-12.30pm.

They allow access to an expert who can answer questions about wills, powers of attorney and other legal aspects of property and finances.

The sessions are organised in partnership with Kelly Payne, associate solicitor from Humphries Kirk.

Lisa Holmes from Age UK Dorchester said: “We are happy to work with Humphries Kirk solicitors to provide this much needed and valuable service to local older people.

"Issues around making a will or power of attorney can be confusing and being able to talk things through with a solicitor can make all the difference.”

Call Age UK Dorchester on 01305 269 444 to book an appointment.
