BRM Solicitors Offer Free Will Service To Help Chesterfield Appeal

19th September 2016

BRM Solicitors has joined forces with Macmillan Cancer Support to exclusively offer a free will-writing service during September and October to raise money for the Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre Appeal.

The firm ran the scheme in 2015, raising almost £10,000 for the Appeal and has agreed to run the scheme again due to high demand. Rob Woodhead, Head of Wills and Probate at BRM Solicitors says: -BRM Solicitors is very proud to volunteer our legal expertise to help such a worthwhile cause. The money raised from this free will-writing initiative will help Macmillan to provide vital support services to people affected by cancer. Over the two months, BRM Solicitors will waive its fees, and instead will encourage clients to make a voluntary donation of £54 per single will and £108 per double will to the Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre. The amounts were chosen as £54 is the equivalent of funding two hours of a Macmillan Nurse and £108, four hours. Macmillan is trying to raise £2.5 million to build the new state-of-the-art Cancer Centre. This exciting new development will mean that people with cancer in North and North East Derbyshire will be able to receive their vital treatment, care and support in one purpose-built facility - providing joined up services closer to home. Currently cancer care and treatment is given from different clinics across the hospital site, and the chemotherapy unit is no longer large enough for the number of patients it sees. There is also only a limited information service. The new centre will change all that enabling specialist teams to provide a range of appointments in one place including all out-patient chemotherapy and clinical haematology. The centre will also include a specialist information and advice service. 98% of Macmillan's funding comes from voluntary donations; over a third of which is from gifts in wills. Rob Turner, Senior Fundraising manager for Macmillan in Chesterfield said: -This is a vital new centre for the people of North and North East Derbyshire. Being diagnosed with cancer is one of the toughest things that anyone can face and the Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre will give local people the very best in treatment and support. But we won't be able to do this without the generosity of local people and support of local businesses like BRM Solicitors. To take advantage of BRM Solicitors will-writing offer, call 01246 555111 or email macmillan@brmlaw.co.uk quoting Macmillan Will Writing Promotion.
