What is Will Aid?
Will Aid is a huge national campaign which runs every November. Through Will Aid people are encouraged to make a Will through one of the participating firms of Solicitors – of which there are hundreds across the Country. The Solicitor gives their time for free and prepares your Will in return for a donation being made to Will Aid. The suggested donations are £100 for a single person and £180 for a couple making wills.
All monies raised during the Will Aid campaign go to 9 charities – Action Aid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Air, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCAIF, Sightsavers and Trocaire. The monies raised support the vital work of the nine Will Aid charities to help people in need in the UK and around the world.
