Hear how gifts in wills are helping Essex & Herts Air Ambulance
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) will be discussing the part played by wills in funding the Charity at a special event in Hertfordshire this month.
The Legacy & Will Information Event takes place at Stevenage Golf & Conference Centre on February 27th at 1.30pm.
It will be a chance for supporters to learn about the will-making process and hear how money left in wills is supporting the Charity’s life-saving work.
At the event, which is free to attend, EHAAT Critical Care Paramedic Adam Carr will talk about the Charity’s plans for the future.
Representatives from Nockolds Solicitors will explain the will-making process and discuss the advantages of making one. These include how a will can be used to maximise relief from Inheritance Tax. They will be available to answer questions.
EHAAT Fundraising Manager Natasha Robertson said: “Making a will can feel complicated if you have not done it before. We hope this event will answer many of the questions people have about making a will that is right for them.
“It will also be a great opportunity to hear first-hand about the life-saving work our Critical Care Teams do across Hertfordshire.”
Tea, coffee and cakes will be served.
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance’s Legacy & Will Information Event takes place at Stevenage Golf & Conference Centre, Aston Lane, Stevenage, SG2 7EL at 1.30pm on February 27th. To book your free place please visit ehaat.org/events or call 0345 5040 055.

Notes to Editor:
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) is a Charity that provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the critically ill and injured of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
The service is provided free of charge but, unlike NHS emergency services, the Charity receives no direct funding from the Government or National Lottery. It costs in excess of £500,000 every month to keep the service operational and saving lives, and this would not be possible without the generosity and goodwill of people and businesses of Essex, Hertfordshire and beyond.
Each of the Charity’s HEMS teams consist of a Pilot, a Co-pilot, a Pre-hospital Care Doctor and a Critical Care Paramedic.
These teams, made up of highly-skilled individuals, tended to 1505 patients in 2017/18 and are the backbone of your local life-saving Charity.
The fleet, consisting of two Air Ambulances, and four Rapid Response Vehicles (RRVs - cars) operates seven days a week from 7am to 9pm. After sunset, the Critical Care Team continues to provide the service using Rapid Response Vehicles.
In addition, a Rapid Response Vehicle is operational on a Friday and Saturday evening from 6pm until 2am with a Pre-hospital Care Doctor and Critical Care Paramedic.
