Air Ambulance Free Wills Week

For the week 15th to 19th June 2020 we are taking part in The Air Ambulance Service free Wills campaign for Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire.

In exchange for a voluntary donation of £95 for a single Will and £150 for double Wills we will write your basic Will for free.


   The services started in 2003 and they serve 5 counties and attend 6 missions a day on average. They say:

Our vision is clear. We want children to grow into adults, we want adults to live longer and we want bereavement through trauma to become rare.

Each of our services works tirelessly to save lives and alleviate sickness, wherever and whenever possible.

Receiving no funding from the government or National Lottery they rely solely on support from local people and businesses which is why we hope to raise money for them by offering our Will writing services.

What is covered by the free Will package?

We will construct a standard Will which incudes the below information;

  • Your personal details
  • Your chosen Executors & Trustees
  • Your chosen Beneficiaries e.g. wife/husband then children/grandchildren etc.
  • Any legacy to The Air Ambulance Service or any other chosen charity/society.
  • Your choice of dispatch e.g. cremation, burial etc.

Should you require a more in depth Will, say a Trust clause for minors, Trust clauses for the gifting of property and the like, then additional charges will apply. We will carry out an estate planning assessment free of charge and make any relevant recommendations to you, such as Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Although we hope to raise up front donations for the charity, we also ask people to consider leaving a gift to them in their Wills, whether this is a specific amount or a share of their estate. 1 in 7 of their missions is funded by gifts left in Wills.

We understand some of our clients may not be able to attend our offices for the 15th to 19th due to work commitments, childcare or they simply aren’t available for the spaces we have left therefore we can be flexible with booking an appointment outside of this time.

If you would like to discus the free Will further or arrange an appointment please call us on 01246471900 or email us at

I have used Buchanan & Co to finalise my divorce, they are very helpful & professional. I must make a special mention about Julia Gibbons, who has provided me with expert help & has always been on hand to answer any questions I had. I can't recommend Buchanans enough!
