Free Will Service for DWT members returns for October
Wednesday 13th September 2017
A network of leading solicitors across Dorset has partnered with Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) to offer a free Will writing service to its 27,500+ members throughout October 2017.
Dorset Wildlife Trust is Dorset’s largest conservation charity, managing over 44 nature reserves across Dorset for the benefit of wildlife, and enjoyment of people.
The free Will service is for those members wishing to make a will or update an existing one, and they are also given the option to leave a gift to the charity. To enable important conservation work to continue, DWT relies on 25% of its work being funded through gifts in Wills.
The free Will writing service was developed 5 years ago to raise awareness of how vital this type of fundraising is and what a significant part it plays in conserving Dorset’s precious wildlife.
Solicitors taking part in the scheme in Dorset are Battens, Humphries Kirk, Coles Miller, and Kitson & Trotman.
Tracy Scammell from Kitson & Trotman said, “By offering free Wills, Dorset Wildlife Trust have provided an ideal opportunity for those people passionate about wildlife in Dorset to have their wills drafted in accordance with their wishes by a professional. Kitson & Trotman are delighted to work with DWT in the free Will scheme.”
DWT Membership Manager, James Haldane said, “We are delighted to be offering the free Will Service to our members for the fifth year running. Donations through a gift in a Will play an ever-increasing part in how we fund our nature reserves across Dorset. Those that do decide to use the free Will writing service to leave a gift, however large or small, can take great comfort in knowing their legacy will be helping Dorset’s wildlife for many years to come.”
