Life & Time Launch ‘Wills’ Initiative with local Solicitors

Launching the new Life & Time, Wills initiative for the month of October are: l-r John McGinn, Director Life & Time, Rachel Rice of Rosemary Connolly Solicitors, Sarah Murphy of ES Legal, Charlotte Neary of Donnelly Neary Solicitors and Brian Scullion, Scullion Green Solicitors.

Life & Time Care, the palliative charity which delivers end of life care to Warrenpoint, Burren & Rostrevor (WBR) region and most recently introduced new services to Rathfriland, Hilltown & Mayobridge (RHM) area, have launched a new WILLS promotion service.

The established end of life charity, Life & Time, which provides palliative support to families in WBR and RHM, has this month launched a new service offering creation of a WILL through local solicitors with payment being waived in lieu of a donation to the charity. 

October marks International Palliative Care Day (9th) and this initiative will run throughout the month of October.

Life & Time Director, Solicitor Brian Scullion has developed the initiative. He explains: “Writing a Will or updating an old Will is not difficult with the right advice and support and having your affairs in order can make a huge difference to you and your family. 

“As a local solicitor, and a voluntary Director with Life & Time, I am delighted that this Will Campaign will offer this important service to local people while also supporting the important work of Life & Time. 

“Life & Time is a community based charity, offering end of life care to patients and support for their families. First operating in Warrenpoint, Burren and Rostrevor, earlier this month Life & Time launched a new team of nursing staff in the Rathfriland, Hilltown & Mayobridge area – expanding the services that the charity provides. 

“To date, the charity has supported 45 local families since it was first launched in 2018. We have an amazing team of 40 local nurses working to support end of life care in their own communities and this initiative will help them continue to provide that important service,” Brian adds.

To deliver the October Wills Campaign, Life and Time have teamed up with (with others to be added):

DND Law 

Rosemary Connolly Solicitors

Eamon Sloan Solicitors and 

Scullion and Green Solicitors  

Each practice has agreed to waive their usual fee in return for a donation to the charity. 

Brian explains: “The amount is at your discretion. The suggested minimum is £75 for a single Will and £120 for two reciprocal Wills where – most usually – a husband and wife will make similar wills providing for each other and their family or families. The firm will draw up the basic Will in return for your donation to the charity. If there are other local practices out there who would like to get involved in the initiative please do get in touch with us.” For more information on the Wills Initiative, or to make an appointment with one of the listed solicitors please visit
