Jo, one of our pledgers


I really appreciated the simplicity of using the service, so I would recommend it to anyone. You can do the whole Will, not just the charity donation so it’s a win-win. Cancer Research UK were very supportive and answered any questions I had, and my Free Will Service solicitor was excellent and very approachable too.
