Make your Will this November with Will Aid

ActionAid is partnering with Will Aid to give you the chance to have your Will professionally drawn up by a qualified solicitor this November. Instead of paying a solicitor’s fee, you are invited to make a voluntary donation which will help fund life changing work around the world. 

All donations made via Will Aid are divided between the nine participating charities – including ActionAid.

How much should I donate?

The donation is voluntary but the suggested minimum donations are:

  • £95 for a basic Will
  • £150 for a pair of mirror Wills

Why use Will Aid? 

Will Aid

Will Aid has been running for more than 25 years. In that time, it has helped hundreds of thousands of supporters to make or update their Will whilst raising over £15 million for participating charities. 

Making or updating a Will is something that many of us tend to put off. Having an up-to-date Will means that the people we care about are looked after and it ensures our wishes are carried out after we are gone. This November, take care of your loved ones while supporting a cause you believe in.

Appointments for November are available now. The scheme is very popular and there are a limited number of appointments available.

ActionAid supporter Stephen Hooper told us:

We put off making a Will until we bought a house. Will Aid is a great idea to get people interested in making a Will, and benefitting ActionAid at the same time. The solicitor was very thorough which reassured us that we were making the right decision to plan for the unexpected. Well worth doing it for peace of mind and the added perk that we could donate to charity as well.

Bindman Solicitors in Gateshead have been taking part in Will Aid month for over 10 years, raising over £9,000. Their Senior Partner Les Bindman says:

Will Aid month is fantastic on so many levels. It’s such a simple concept, well-executed, and benefits so many. It helps charities like ActionAid continue their good work, helping some of the poorest, most disadvantaged people – which is something we all want to help continue. The participating solicitors, who waive their fee during this month, get the pleasure of helping others – whilst doing what we do best. I encourage everyone to participate.

Other ways you can help…

While you’re considering your Will, you may decide to leave a gift to a cause you believe in. By leaving a gift to ActionAid, you can help make the world a fairer place for its poorest people.

A regular gift from you means we can commit to being there for children like Abigail, fourteen, from Kenya, who desperately need us, both now and in the future.
