Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has teamed up with us to offer a free will writing service

04 July 2014

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has teamed up with us to offer a free will writing service to the public.

We are one of the leading solicitors who are taking part in the scheme across the six counties covered by the lifesaving charity.

On average the charity responds to 2,000 incidents each year, with four in every ten missions funded through a gift in a will. 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.

Jason Levy, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, explains: “Donations through a gift in a will play an ever increasing part in how we fund our lifesaving service. We want to ensure that people across the region who are considering making or updating their will are able to do so without any cost. The service is available to everyone aged 55 and over, regardless of whether they are supporters of the charity or not. To enable us to do this, we are working with a number of leading firms in the region, including Willans LLP in Gloucestershire.

“Those that do decide to use the free will writing service and leave a gift, no matter how large or small, can take great comfort in knowing their legacy will be saving lives for many years to come.”

Miranda Hawkes from Willans LLP’s wills, probate & trusts department, adds: “A will is a very important document as it ensures a person’s assets and belongings go to those they care about the most. It is also an opportunity to leave a gift to a good cause, such as the Midlands Air Ambulance, which relies so heavily on legacies to fund their lifesaving missions. We are therefore delighted to be working in partnership with the charity to offer the free will writing service.”

The charity’s free will writing service is available to those aged 55 and over. To find out more and to request a free leaflet about the service, please contact Midlands Air Ambulance Charity on 0800 8402040 or visit www.midlandsairambulance.com.
