Make a Will for free this October and leave your gift for wildlife
Friday 16th September 2016
With the support of a network of leading solicitors, Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) is launching its Free Will Writing service for the fourth year running. The service is available to DWT’s 26,000 members across Dorset throughout October 2016.
The Free Will writing service is ideal for any DWT member wanting to make a new will or update an existing one and includes the option of leaving a gift for wildlife. DWT relies on 25% of its work being funded through gifts in Wills, which is an ever-increasing part in how we fund our nature conservation work in Dorset.
DWT has seen the huge impact large and small gifts can make
Recently, a legacy left to DWT by a long-standing member was able to fund a new state-of-the-art tractor for Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve, supporting our work and enabling us to develop further conservation tasks into the future.
Individual Giving Officer, Jodi Hibbard said “Over the years DWT has seen the huge impact large and small gifts in Wills have made to the future of our reserves. 25% of our work relies on gifts in Wills, and any donations made will go directly into conservation work in Dorset. We are delighted to be able to give our members the opportunity to have access to this Free Will Service kindly offered by a network of local solicitors.”
Local solicitors are taking part
Solicitors taking part in this scheme in Dorset include Battens, Coles Miller, Humphries Kirk and Kitson Trotman.
Natalie Mason from Battens solicitors said, “We had no hesitation in taking part again in Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Free Will month, not only does it provide valuable support to a charity that is close to our hearts , it actively encourages people to take that important step to make Will.”
