Wills offer from Battle of Britain charity
A leading Kent charity has made it easier for local people to make a Will – wills are something everyone knows they should do but which many never quite get around to.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust has teamed up with a number of local solicitors to offer a free Will-writing service in return for a donation to the charity, which receives no public sector funding and has endured a difficult past year because of the pandemic.
“Everyone knows they need to make a Will in order to prevent their loved ones losing out, but it can be daunting, and the cost may be off-putting for those with a limited income,” said Trust Chairman Richard Hunting CBE.
“We’ve made wills much simpler by getting together with some very generous local practices who have offered to draft a free Will in return for a donation, the size of which is left up to the recipient. People are in control of what they give and they know it is going to a good cause.”
The offer lasts for the whole of May and is thanks to generous support from Martin Tolhurst Solicitors, Stilwell & Singleton, Hallett & Co, Tiger Law Ltd and Whitehead Monckton.
Richard added: “The impact on your loved ones of not setting your affairs in order before you die can be dramatic, leading to prolonged legal struggles and your hard-earned cash not going to the people you hoped would benefit from it.
“The Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel-le-Ferne honours the memory of Churchill’s ‘Few’, whose legacy of freedom will never be equalled, but the Trust hopes that this offer will at least allow others to plan their own legacies with professional help.”
Meanwhile the Wing visitor centre and the car park at the Memorial will re-open to the public on 19 May, as long as the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown stays in place. The outside features of the site, including the National Memorial to the Few, replica aircraft and Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial Wall, are always accessible on foot.
