What difference will it make?

What our supporters say
Patron, Andy Le Marr used the Free Wills Scheme via our partnership with Wills & Legal Services Ltd and had this to say:
“Both my partner and I decided we needed to update our wills…. as a long time supporter of the Birmingham Hippodrome I decided to take advantage of the Wills and Legal Services’s Free Wills Scheme.
What a fantastic way to show support to such an excellent theatre, by contributing in a small way. And what made it more easier was the company representative actually visited us at home, with an appointment to suit us. I would urge anyone who is thinking of making a Will for the first time, or simply updating an existing Will as we were, to use this service and help the theatre in the process.”
