Free Wills Month – March

Take advantage of Free Wills Month

March is Free Wills Month at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. We are offering people aged 55 or over the opportunity to have a will professionally drawn up by a participating solicitor, who are offering their services free of charge in support of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Having a will drawn up ensures that your wishes are respected and allows you to provide for your loved ones. For the first time, solicitors across Essex and Hertfordshire have agreed to waive their usual charges for writing a will for supporters of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Simply contact your local participating solicitor by the end of March to arrange your appointment. The number of appointments are limited so please make contact as soon as possible.

There is a suggested donation of £100 for a simple will and £150 for a mirror will which will be collected by the solicitor on the day.

Will writing services for a single simple will typically cost around £149-£200 + VAT (£178 – £240 including VAT).

1 in 10 missions are funded through legacy giving

We appreciate that leaving something to your family will be foremost in your mind when it comes to preparing a will. By participating in Free Wills Month we hope that you will consider leaving a legacy in your will to our Charity, although there is no obligation to do so.
