Hegarty Solicitors recently took part in Will Aid and are delighted to announce that we have raised £535 to date for the nine Will Aid charities.
As part of the Will Aid campaign, we drew up basic Wills for local people without charging our usual fee. In return for this service, the clients made a donation to Will Aid.
Will Aid is the UK’s leading charity will-writing scheme. It offers everyone the opportunity to make or update their Will in return for a donation to help people in need in the UK and all over the world. 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).
It was a very busy and successful campaign. Solicitor Jo Wild wrote 11 Wills in total for local people, giving their families the security of a properly drafted Will as well as the opportunity to support popular charities.
Jo said: “I really enjoyed meeting many new clients, and would like to thank those who took part and donated so generously in order to make our fundraising efforts such a success.
We are proud that Hegarty Solicitors in Stamford were involved.
The money we have raised will be added to the nationwide total, currently standing at £1.5m, which will be put to work to make a real and lasting difference to vulnerable children, families and older people in the UK and around the world.”
