WDC are pleased to partner up with online Will writing service, Farewill

Despite common belief, charities rely on gifts in Wills, and at WDC, we would struggle to achieve as much as we do without them. Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free but these amazing, intelligent creatures face so many man-made dangers. Leave a gift in your Will, and you will help protect them.   

Will writing doesn’t have to be difficult. We have partnered with Farewill, an online Will writing service. You can claim a free Will (RRP £50), make it in four simple steps from the comfort of your own home, and access live support from their Will specialists. 

If you would like to claim a free Will from Farewill please use voucher code WDC100 on checkout. 

If you have any questions, require more information about how a gift in your Will can help, or wish to tell us you have or are going to leave a gift in your Will, please get in touch, either by email [email protected] or phone on 01249 449500.  We always like to say thank you.

If Farewill isn’t for you, please look at The Law Society where you can find a local solicitor or call 0207 242 1222.
