Will Aid has been running since 1988 and has run every November since 2008. It celebrated its 30thanniversary in 2018. It is the most successful charity Will-writing scheme in the UK, open to all adults. The campaign has encouraged over 300,000 people to write their will with a qualified, regulated and insured solicitor and in so doing has raised over £20 million in donations. The suggested voluntary donation is £95 for a single will and £150 for a pair of mirror wills.
