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.

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