Charity will scheme flying high

28 October 2015

People across Gloucestershire have been taking advantage of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Free Will Writing Service, and have collectively pledged thousands of pounds to help keep the vitally important emergency service operational.

The charity partnered with us to offer the Free Will Writing Service, which is available to the over 55s across Gloucestershire. Since the scheme launched in July 2014, a great number of people have either made or updated an existing will in the county, and as a thank you to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, have left a nominal amount to the service as part of their legacy.

Miranda Hawkes, from our wills, probate & trusts department, comments: “Making or changing your will is very simple, but vitally important as it means your estate is passed to those you intended it to go to. We are delighted so many people have already used Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Free Will Writing Service, and assisted the charity’s cause at the same time.”

Jason Levy, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, adds: “Four in ten of the life saving air ambulance missions carried out by our helicopter emergency service are funded through gifts in wills, so this is a great mechanism to support the charity. I’d encourage anyone over the age of 55 who is looking to make a Will to find out more about the scheme and our partnership with Willans.”

The new Free Will Writing Service has been developed to raise awareness of how vital this type of fundraising is and what a significant part it plays in saving lives in the region. To find out more and to request a free leaflet about the service, please contact Midlands Air Ambulance Charity on 0800 8 40 20 40 or visit www.midlandsairambulance.com.
