Labrums are proud to announce we raised an amazing £3,410 for Will Aid last year, an annual campaign which raises money for nine charities. It is the eighth year Labrums have taken part in the scheme which has raised more than £20million for charity since it launched 30 years ago.
The campaign supports nine of the UK’s best-loved charities – ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).
“This is a superb initiative which targets the millions of people in the UK who do not have a will and allows them access to a professional to draw up this important document. Meanwhile, it raises money for some of the most vulnerable people worldwide.” said Josie Birnie, Head of the Private Client Department
Jon Jacques, chair of Will Aid said: “We are very grateful to all the solicitors who give their time to write wills and all those that have made a will and given a donation, for their generous support. The nine partner charities use these donations and legacies left by will makers to transform the lives of people in need, both here in the UK and all around the world.”
Peter de Vena Franks, campaign director, said: “I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Labrums Solicitors for their incredible efforts this year.”
Will Aid takes place every November and participating solicitors volunteer their time and expertise and waive their fee for writing a basic will. Instead, they invite clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
