We at Grant Saw Solicitors would like to publicly thank our Will Aid clients for their generous donations which led to the firm raising an amazing total of £2,510 for the Will Aid charities during last November’s Will Aid campaign. The firm volunteered their time and skills to write Wills for local people and, through sheer hard work, managed to write thirty Wills and mirror Wills, helping these clients secure the future for their loved ones.
“We are delighted to have raised so much money for the Will Aid charities. Our fundraising success is a testament to the generosity of those people who came forward to have their Wills written under the scheme during November last year and we would like to thank them all.”
Will Aid is the UK’s leading charity will-writing scheme. The solicitors who join offer their time and expertise without charge to give everyone the opportunity to make a basic Will in return for a donation to help people in need.
This money is shared by nine well-known UK charities : ActionAid, Age UK British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland).
Shirley Marsland, Will Aid campaign manager, said:-
“Grant Saw have made a very valuable contribution to the success of Will Aid. The participating charities are deeply grateful for the funds raised, which they will be able to put to good use to help people in the UK as well as around the World. So far the campaign has raised over £1.2m and as donations are still being received we hope the final total will be nearer £2m.”
The scheme will run again in November 2015 and will provide the opportunity for many more people in need of a Will to come forward to sort out their affairs and, at the same time, support nine charities.
In the meantime, if readers wish to have their Will drawn up, they should contact Rose Walker, William Meakin, John Templeton or Kalpa Prajapati.
