Solicitors donate time to helicopter rescue service

A local legal firm will donate its fees for preparing a will to a helicopter rescue service for one week during March.

Peninsula Law solicitors in Woy Woy will donate their time to support the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

The service's Wills Week will enable residents to have a simple will drafted or updated for a booking fee of $125 for individuals or $225 for couples.

The fee will be donated to the service.

The service is hoping people will consider making a bequest in their wills.

"The service sees the gift of a bequest as an incredible act of generosity with the gift being a lasting legacy that gives back to our community," said service chief executive Mr Richard Jones.

"For charities such as the Rescue Helicopter Service, receiving the support of bequest is not taken lightly.

"The gift of a bequest can be a nominated amount, a percentage of an estate or even an allotment of shares.

"It is very humbling for all of us here at the service when we see the generosity shown by people who have taken steps to establish a bequest in their will.

"Properly acknowledging this type of support is so important to us and we welcome the chance to discuss this type of donation with anyone seeking further information or insight about the type of impact their support can have.

"Privacy is respected at all times during Wills Week from March 22 to 26 with all information provided being strictly confidential between the applicant and the solicitor.

"Online bookings are now open and close on February 26 via www.rescuehelicopter.com.au/willsweek."

For more information, call 1800 155 155 or email willsweek@rescuehelicopter.com.au
