It’s Free Wills Month – the biannual event that brings charities and solicitors together to offer people aged 55 and over the chance to have a simple Will written or updated free of charge.
The last one took place in March and saw charities including Scope, National Trust, Stroke Association and RNLI take part, teaming up with the National Free Wills Network to offer supporters access to participating solicitors.
Even though charities promote it, there is of course no obligation for anyone who takes up the offer to leave a bequest or give a donation. But with 40% of people now saying they would be happy to leave a gift to a charity, promoting Free Wills Month is a great opportunity to raise supporters’ awareness of legacy giving and its value for your organisation.
