How you can help
We have entered into a number of partnerships that enable our supporters to write their Wills for free – without any obligations whatsoever. In each case, we are paying a discretionary rate for a limited number of simple Wills to be written – if matters are more complex, you will need to pay any additional fees.
You can visit a solicitor, have someone visit you at home, or go online - see below for details or contact Graeme Cotterill to arrange a discussion in confidence.
Whether you choose to make a free will online, with a will-writing service or a solicitor, please note that only simple Wills are covered by any of these services. If you have a complex estate, we would always recommend visiting a solicitor in person. You could use The National Free Wills Network or Gamlins Solicitors LLP as indicated above and pay for any additional services, or find a solicitor via The Law Society.
You may, of course, also choose to pay for your own Will with your own solicitor.
Gifts in Wills are crucial in helping us plan for the future – making sure that it’s wildlife-rich and that people in North Wales understand why this is so important. Happily, it’s widely acknowledged that around 35% of people in the UK would consider leaving a gift to charity. However, despite these good intentions, research suggests that only around 6% of people have actually left a bequest to good causes.
We know what a difference bridging that gap between 6% and 35% could make for wildlife locally. Legacies already do wonderful things – in recent years, they’ve helped us manage nature reserves, protect individual species, save wildlife sites and help schoolchildren make beautiful wildlife gardens – but there is clearly so much more that could be done.
