A Herefordshire care company is linking up with a local solicitor and the Midlands Air Ambulance charity to provide a free will writing service during a coffee morning next month.
Staff at Kemble at Home, formerly Kemble Care, are keen to raise awareness of the importance of making a will and say the coffee morning on May 15 will provide the ideal opportunity for people to take advantage of the service.
The independent family-run company, based in Holme Lacy Road, Hereford, was formed in 1993 and currently provides visiting care, live-in care, re-enablement, respite and support services to adults within their own homes.
Sandra Taylor, of Kemble at Home, said the coffee morning would take place at the Holme Lacy Road offices between 10am and 12.30pm.
“Making a will is something none of us really wants to think about and something we keep putting off until later, but it is very important and very often there can be major problems after people die without making a will,” she said.
“We want to raise awareness of just how important it is and are happy to link up with Kidwells Solicitors which is providing the free service for those aged 55 or over.
“It is vital people think about the future and put their wishes in place while they are able to do so.
“We, at Kemble, have a commitment to the community and hope that by providing this service we can encourage more over 55s to take advantage of it – especially as writing a will can be a costly service. People do not have to book in advance and can turn up on the day.”
People can contact Sandra Taylor at Kemble at Home if they want further information or wish to make an appointment for the will writing.
The event is being organised in support of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity which has linked up with a number of solicitors from across the six counties they cover by offering the free will writing service.
Kidwells is one of those supporting the service and any bequest can make all the difference to those relying on the Air Ambulance - four in 10 air ambulance calls are funded through gifts in Wills. The Air Ambulance responds to about 2,000 calls each year.
