Free Wills Month – October 2021

Take advantage of Free Wills Month

October is Free Wills Month at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

During Free Wills Month we are offering anyone aged 55 and over the opportunity to have a Will prepared professionally by a participating solicitor, who are offering their services free of charge in support of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT).

Having a will ensures that your wishes are respected and allows you to provide for your loved ones. We are delighted that a number of solicitors across Essex and Hertfordshire have very kindly agreed to waive their usual charges for writing a Will for supporters of EHAAT.

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

As a guide, solicitor charges for drawing up a basic Will vary from £149 – £400 +VAT, with a pair of Simple Mirror Wills approximately £500 – £700 +VAT.


Did you know that 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 EHAAT, although there is no obligation to do so.

Thank you . . . we can’t fly without you!
