A full-service law firm is offering people in Great Barr, Kings Heath, Quinton, and Stourbridge a free Will writing service to help boost legacy donations for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, which covers six Midlands counties including Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, the West Midlands, and Worcestershire, has responded to almost 70,000 missions since its launch in 1991. It's one of the busiest air ambulance services in the UK and four in ten of its missions are funded through gifts left in Wills by generous pledgers.
GloverPriest Solicitors has branches across Staffordshire and the West Midlands and is now one of 14 firms of solicitors supporting Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s free Will writing service. The scheme raises awareness of how vital legacy donations are and the significant role they play in making lifesaving missions possible for the rapid response pre-hospital service.
The West Midlands-based GloverPriest branches offering the scheme are in Great Barr, Kings Heath, Quinton, and Stourbridge.
Emma Wood, head of fundraising and marketing for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: "Around 40 per cent of all our missions are funded through the legacies we receive from those who have thoughtfully remembered our charity in their Will. People in the West Midlands who are considering writing or updating their Will can now do this completely free of charge with the team at GloverPriest Solicitors in partnership with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Anyone who leaves a gift to our charity will be making daily lifesaving missions possible in their local area as part of their legacy."
Sophie Donovan, solicitor and director, at GloverPriest, added: "GloverPriest is proud to support such a fantastic charity, one that offers lifesaving services to those in their time of need. Midlands Air Ambulance Charity could not offer this vital service without the kind donations people make through their Wills.
“We are happy to be supporting Midlands Air Ambulance Charity by now offering their Free Will Writing scheme.”
The free Will writing service, via GloverPriest, is available to anyone in the West Midlands aged 55 and over. A nominal fee is paid by Midlands Air Ambulance Charity to the participating solicitors. Anyone who would like more information can visit the Free Will Writing Scheme page.
