‘Love your family’ campaign on Valentine’s Day a huge success
Team members of Osborne Morris & Morgan were up bright and early on Valentine’s Day to greet the early bird commuters of Leighton Buzzard with free thermal travel mugs at the entrance to the town’s train station.
The giveaway campaign, ‘Love Your Family’, was run to raise awareness about the importance of writing a valid Will and ensuring existing Wills are up to date. It was hailed a huge success.
Holly Canham who is the firm’s marketing assistant, said of the event; “The free mugs were a warm welcome to what was a chilly start to Valentine’s Day. We received hundreds of positive comments and commuters were truly grateful to receive a free travel mug. It was also lovely to speak with so many old and existing clients in our local community”.
Following the giveaway, we ran a competition on Facebook, with prizes worth over £200. Social media users were invited to guess the number of heart-shaped chocolates they could fit inside their thermal travel mug.
Nix Langford was our lucky winner, whose guess of 34 chocolates was the closest to the answer of 43.
Nix won 50% of a Mirror Will with us and a Costa Coffee voucher.
Sarah Crook, our Wills Legal Executive solicitor said;
“Over 60 percent of the UK population do not have a Will and many of the people we spoke to at the station on Tuesday are included in this figure”.
“This is concerning because in the event of your death, your estate may not be distributed according to your wishes. Many people make the mistake of assuming that their estate will automatically go to their spouse or partner when they die.
“However, without a valid Will, intestacy law rules- meaning no account of your personal wishes or family circumstances are taken into consideration at all.”
