Roythornes’ Alconbury team raised £3,450 after taking part in Will Aid, a national campaign which invites solicitors to volunteer some of their time in the month of November to write wills in exchange for a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
The donations raised benefit the vital work of the nine partner charities.
This is the first year the firm has taken part in the month-long fundraiser and we were the highest fundraising firm in Cambridgeshire for 2019.
Joseph Stoehr, of our Private Client team said he was thrilled their efforts in 2019 had made them one of the top fundraisers taking part.
“Making a will with a professional solicitor is one of the most important pieces of paperwork a person can complete and yet millions of people put it off,” he said.
“This is just one of a number of reasons why we choose to donate our time for Will Aid. We also understand that every penny raised is reaching some of the most vulnerable individuals world-wide.”
Will Aid raises money for 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, said: “Will Aid has made an amazing contribution to the work of these nine participating charities since 1988.
“Thanks to the commitment of local solicitors 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 that having a professionally drawn up will brings."
“I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Roythornes for their incredible efforts this year.”
