Based in Hellesdon, Norwich, Heritage Will Writers has already had an amazing 12 months picking up two major industry Awards. In October they were awarded “Regional Will Writers of the Year” at the inaugural British Wills and Probate Awards. The Regional Award was swiftly followed by another win in March 2019, when they were named “Will Writing Organisation of the Year” at the National Paralegal Awards with the judging panel saying “This business is impressive and has scaled. The entry contained a strong balance of evidence in relation to qualifications, experience, scale, community and customer service. An all-round excellent business.”
“We are all so excited and it is such an achievement to be shortlisted again – especially in two very different categories” said Heritage Will Writers Managing Director, Kathy Long on hearing the news. “To be in the running for the Community Involvement Award (as well as Will Writers of the Year) feels really special because our staff work hard as a team to support local charities, causes and the local community where we can.”
Kathy continued “Over the last two years, we have supported Norfolk’s leading child bereavement charity, Nelson’s Journey as our Charity of the Year. We have also been part of the Norfolk WILL Help scheme, which enables Norfolk residents to have a basic will written in return for a donation split equally between five local charities. Heritage Will Writers are also part of the Norwich City Dementia Action Alliance and committed to helping make Norwich a Dementia Friendly city. As part of this commitment, our staff received Dementia awareness training and we also supported Dementia Action Week through our social media channels.
“We are also proud sponsors of Norwich Rugby Club which is a big part of the local community and brings together all types of people who have family and friends who play for or support the club.”
The British Wills and Probate Awards were introduced in 2018 to highlight achievement and recognise the successes of those in the Wills and Probate sector. Heritage Will Writers will learn if they have won at the prestigious Awards ceremony on 17 October at the Belfry Hotel in Birmingham, hosted by the Broadcaster and journalist Jennie Bond.
Established in 2002, Heritage Will Writers are East Anglia and the South East’s leading dedicated Will writing service, serving tens of thousands of clients. In addition to writing Wills, the team offer a full probate service, a Client Care Package which includes secure document storage and can help with trust enquiries, Lasting Powers of Attorney and property ownership changes.
“It would mean so much if we are able to come back to Norfolk with (hopefully) both of these Awards” said Kathy. “We are so grateful to all of our wonderful staff, clients and supporters who have helped us achieve this and thank everyone for your kind words of support.”
