Edgbaston-based Rubric Lois King is the latest solicitors firm to partner with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity to offer a Free Will Writing Scheme to the public.
Rubric Lois King is now one of eleven solicitors across the six counties covered by Midlands Air Ambulance Charity to offer the popular service.
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 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.
Jon Cottrell, corporate development executive 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 people across the Midlands who are considering making or updating their Will, that they 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 Rubric Lois King in the heart of Birmingham.
“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.”
Joyce Bennell, head of private clients from Rubric Lois King, 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 life saving missions, so we are delighted to be working in partnership with the charity to offer the Free Will Writing Service.”
