Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service will benefit from Wills Week in March when people can have a simple Will drafted or have an existing Will updated at a greatly reduced price, while also helping the Service to save lives in the local community.
Three legal firms in the northern suburbs are participating in Wills Week by donating 100 percent of their time and the booking fees are donated in full to the Service.
Westpac Rescue Helicopter CEO, Richard Jones, said having an up-to-date Will was very important and Wills Week would help people prepare a Will while also having the option to consider the gift of a bequest.
“For charities such as the Rescue Helicopter Service, receiving the support of bequest is not taken lightly, and we see the gift of a bequest as an incredible act of generosity, with the gift being a lasting legacy that gives back to our community.
“Importantly, all support given to the Rescue Helicopter stays locally and directly supports the local base at Newcastle, as well as other bases in Tamworth or Lismore.
“We are really excited and so thankful for the support being given by over 60 solicitors stretching from the Central Coast, Hunter, New England and Northern NSW who have made their time available to help us launch Wills Week in 2021,” Jones said.
There are seven legal firms on the Central Coast participating, including Ryan & Seton Lawyers in Toukley, Aubrey Brown Lawyers in Tuggerah and Effective Legal Solutions in Wyong.
Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service Wills Week is being held from March 22 to 26.
