Support Newton Stewart Museum by making a Will

Making a Will

Newton Stewart solicitors McCormick & Nicholson are running their ‘Willing to Help’ scheme again this year to support the Newton Stewart Museum.

Under this scheme instead of charging clients a fee for the preparation of their Wills, the firm ask them to make a donation of the suggested amount to support the Newton Stewart Museum. The suggested donation amounts are £90 for a single Will and £150 for a pair of mirror Wills.

If the Will makers are UK tax payers they can also sign a Gift Aid declaration which will give the League of Friends an additional 25 pence for every one pound donated.

The scheme is on offer for the month of November so if anyone is interested in taking part in this scheme please contact Alice Da Prato on 01671-402813 or e-mail me at

A spokesperson for Newton Stewart Museum said: “Entering Newton Stewart Museum is like going back to our not so distant past: farm tools, toys, appliances, costumes, old bicycles - they are all there to show us how we lived. The museum is a great resource for schools, history enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys browsing for a while in our local history.

“The Museum is entirely run by volunteers who work hard to raise funds for urgent repairs and improvements: to achieve these it needs your support, too.”
