Make A Will Month
Making a Will can be expensive and as a result, many of us constantly put it to the bottom of our ‘to do’ list.
This October, you can have a professionally prepared Will, in exchange for a donation to West Cumbria Carers. This will result in peace of mind for your future and the knowledge that you are supporting young and adult carers in the local area.
We are only able to offer this opportunity thanks to the kind generosity of the solicitors involved:
Burnetts, 3c Lakeland Business Park, Lamplugh Road, Cockermouth, CA13 0QT. Telephone: 01900 510366
Cartmell Shepherd, Sutton House, Dovenby Hall Estate, Dovenby, Cockermouth, CA13 0PN. Telephone: 01900 876123
The amount you donate is at your discretion. However, the suggested donation is £130 for one Will, or £150 for a joint Will. This is significantly lower than the amount you would normally be charged for this service.
There are a limited number of appointments available, so contact the solicitors’ office to book your appointment. Don’t forget to mention ‘West Cumbria Carers’ when booking.
If you have questions about Make a Will month, please contact Michelle McGibbon at West Cumbria Carers on 01900 821976.

Weight Watchers (now called WW) has launched a Weight Loss App for children as young as eight. Personally, I think this is despicable!
There have been howls of outrage from two main groups of people:
1) nutritionists, dietitians and those who help with eating disorders – we have to pick up the pieces when dieting ruins people's lives.
2) people whose lives have been ruined by dieting, especially those who started young.
It is undoubtedly true that the percentage of overweight and obese children is terrifying and tragic. The onslaught of manufacturers’ lies means they grow up thinking junk food is fine and probably eat an abundance of breakfast cereal, low- fat yoghurts, pizza, crisps, snack bars and coloured sweets in cute shapes, all washed down with luminous fizzy pop.
Yes, they need help, but they do not need WW to get their money-grabbing mitts on them and trap them in a life-long cycle of yo-yo misery, body hatred and food issues.
Dieting usually causes long-term weight gain. The people I see with the most intractable problems are the ones who started dieting earliest. Most people will lose weight on a diet and most people will put it all on again. Only 5 out of every 100 escape regain. The other 95 keep going back year after year, never achieving the body they want.
What about a home cooking App for parents? Or better school dinners? Or government action on junk advertising? We need a whole change of food environment that allows kids not to even think about this stuff but enjoy their childhood playing with their friends.
Top tips: Feed your kids well and please don’t let them diet!
