Free Will Writing Service Offered Across The Midlands

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has partnered with a network of leading solicitors across the six counties covered by the life saving charity to offer a Free Will Writing Service to the public.

The charity responds to on average 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 life saving service. We want to ensure people across the Midlands that are considering making or updating their Will are able to do this 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 have partnered with a number of leading firms within the Midlands, including Wall James Chappell, Rutherfords LLP, Graham Withers, TA Matthews, Willans and Hallmark Hulme.

“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.”

Wall James Chappell is leading the firms in the scheme. Susannah Griffirths from WJC comments: “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 life saving missions, so we are 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 8 40 20 40 or visit www.midlandsairambulance.com.
