Through the initiative, Cancer Council Queensland provides referrals to qualified solicitors who can help create or update an existing Will free of charge, with the client leaving a gift to the cancer charity.

The service has been operating in Queensland since 2009 and has formally launched its new partnership with Lockett McCullough at the firm’s Albany Creek office on October 31.

Through one’s Will, there is the power to help create a cancer free future and save lives. After family and friends, one may consider naming Cancer Council in the will. Such a gift, no matter how large or small, can help make a difference.

Principal Lawyer Courtney Lockett said the firm was proud to partner with such a worthy cause.

“The service provides people with a free Will, while assisting to generate much-needed funds for Cancer Council Queensland, and at the same time allows our firm to be a part of a charitable service that we feel fondly about supporting,” said Ms Lockett.

“Everyone knows someone who has been impacted by cancer, if they haven’t been impacted themselves.”

“We are passionate about giving back to our community, and grateful that the Free Will Service allows us to make a tangible difference,” said Ms Lockett.

Cancer Council Queensland CEO Andrew Donne said gifts in Wills are vital to funding cancer research, prevention and support services.

They provide daily support for those affected by cancer during the most challenging times. The organisation advocates on behalf of the cancer community on important issues, works to educate people on reducing cancer risk, and funds research to improve cancer detection and treatment.
