Gifts in Your Will

Leave a lasting gift to Wiltshire Air Ambulance

For many of us, our will is one way of helping to look after the people we care about. We choose to leave them something to make sure they’re ok when we’re gone. If you die without making a will, your estate will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy.

This may not be the way you would like to leave your money and possessions. The rules of intestacy are very strict on who can inherit an estate and would not, for example, make any provisions for unmarried partners or stepchildren. A gift to Wiltshire Air Ambulance in your will is an extra way of looking after the people you care about. Your own family, your friends and even people you’ll never know.

People you will want to help because you anyone may need the services of Wiltshire Air Ambulance and its life-saving crew.

Your gift will help make sure we can be there for all of them if they ever need us, whether that's 10, 20 or 30 years from now.

One fifth of the money we raise comes from gifts in wills and in memory donations. An example of an in memory donation is to asking for donations to Wiltshire Air Ambulance instead of flowers at a funeral.

On average, 1 in 10 incidents attended by Wiltshire Air Ambulance were funded by gifts in wills and in memory donations.

The gifts we receive come in all shapes and sizes. Large or small, £100, £1000 or £100,000, 1% of an estate or 100% ... Or anything left over after the other gifts have been made. Even a small gift will help us to continue to save lives in Wiltshire.
