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.
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.
