Charity says “Don’t be slow to make your Will.”

Paignton Zoo fundraiser Jenny Paton: “Our Ape Centre – home to gorillas and orang utans, including babies Tatau and Natalia – was built thanks to a legacy. Another sum built a whole set of owl aviaries. It is a very important way for a charity like ours to receive funds.”


A Will is important if you are getting married or divorced, have children or grandchildren or own property. Jenny: “You hear all these terrible stories of family disagreements over inheritances. 7 out of 10 people have not made a Will, which I find amazing. A Will can make all the difference.”


If you die intestate it can lead to long and complicated legal wrangles; last year £8 million went to the government because people didn’t write a Will.


As part of Paignton Zoo Will Week you can book a personal consultation in a private room with a professional solicitor. Wollen Michelmore have waived their usual fees for the week. Instead, the Zoo is asking for a minimum donation of £100 for a single person or £150 for a couple. This money will go towards Paignton Zoo conservation projects.
