Tallents Solicitors has raised more than £10,000 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign.
The annual Will Aid scheme asks solicitors to write wills for local people and instead, ask only for a voluntary donation. This year the staff redoubled their efforts and raised an impressive £10,410 in the month-long fundraiser, making them the fourth highest fundraiser in the UK.
Taking into account the other three years that the firm has taken part in Will Aid, their total raised to date for the charity is an impressive £23,889.
Elizabeth Rees from the firm, said: “Our team has thoroughly enjoyed participating in the scheme and have worked very hard to deliver top-quality Wills for our clients, while also raising money for Will Aid.
“We are very happy to donate our time towards Will Aid. It is a great way of generating a link with new clients. We would definitely recommend that other law firms get involved.”
Will Aid, which is celebrating its 30th year since launching, is a charity will-writing scheme that raises money for nine wonderful charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save The Children, Sightsavers, Age UK, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland).
Peter de Vena Franks, campaign director for Will Aid said: “Thanks to the commitment of local solicitors, like Tallents that took part in this year’s Will Aid, many people both in the UK and abroad will receive life-changing support and local people who used the scheme have the peace of mind thanks to having a professionally drawn up will.
Will Aid will run again in November 2018. Find out more by visiting www.willaid.org.uk
