Taylor Bracewell are thrilled to have received confirmation from Will Aid Campaign Director, Peter de Vena Franks, that they are the fifth highest donating law firm in the history of Will Aid
Will Aid is a scheme which runs every November encouraging people to make a Will through one of the participating firms of Solicitors. The Solicitor gives their time for free in return for a donation being made to Will Aid. The suggested donations are £95 for a single person and £150 for a couple making Wills.
The monies raised during the Will Aid campaign go to 9 charities – Action Aid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Air, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCAIF, Sightsavers and Trocaire. Donations support the vital work of the nine Will Aid charities to help people in need in the UK and around the world.
The latest figures show that 843 law firms took part in the Will Aid scheme in November 2018. Taylor Bracewell are delighted to have been the highest donating law firm in the North of England, and third in the Country overall.
Through the 2018 scheme Taylor Bracewell raised over £18,000 in client donations, raising their overall total for their participation in the scheme to over £85,000.
Lauren Smith, Partner and Joint Head of Wills, Trusts and Probate says:
“Taking part in Will Aid is fantastic. It enables us to meet some fantastic new clients, raise awareness about the importance of making a Will, and at the same time raise an incredible amount of money for extremely worthwhile charities. We are looking forward to taking part in the scheme again this year and hope that we can raise enough money to bring our total to over £100,000.”
