A St Neots firm has signed up to become of a national campaign to raise money for charity.

Solicitors Wilkinson and Butler, based in Huntingdon Street, will provide a will writing service for free in return for a voluntary donation to charity from their client.

The company has taken part in the campaign for a number of years, including 2014 where it was within the top five donators in the East Midlands and within the top 20 nationwide.

Campaign director Peter de Vena Franks said: “You can make an appointment now to avoid disappointment.

“Will Aid is a wonderful opportunity to not just make a will, but do it with the help of a professional with the added bonus of helping nine charities in the UK at the same time.

“We are delighted to have so many solicitors willing to give up some of their precious time to help people who have made no provision for their estate.”

As a part of the initiative Wilkinson and Butler staff will be given the opportunity to meet new clients and promote its business throughout the campaign period.
