Law Firm Joins Will Writing Charity Campaign For Another Year

22nd August 2017

A local solicitor firm from Sheffield is aiming to raise vital funds for nine of the UK's best loved charities, after signing up for Will Aid, the annual charity will writing campaign.

Taylor Bracewell has signed up to the scheme, which runs throughout November for several years now, and in 2016 was their top donating firm in the Country. Lauren Smith from the firm said: -We are very excited to be involved again in the Will Aid campaign this year. -It gives us an excellent opportunity to reach people in our community who do not have a Will and help them to protect their loved ones for the future. -It also means we can raise funds for nine incredible charities which make a huge difference to millions of vulnerable people both here in the UK and around the world. Campaign director Peter de Vena Franks added: -One in three people die in the UK without making a will, often leaving confusion and chaos at an already difficult time. -Will Aid encourages people to prepare this vital document and at the same time making a real difference by raising money for the partner charities. -We are thrilled that Tayor Bracewell is continuing their wonderful support of Will Aid. The Will Aid scheme takes place across the UK from 01-30 November and supports the life-changing work of ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland). It has raised more than £19 million for these charities since it launched in 1988. Law firms across the country are being asked to sign up and pledge a portion of their time to write basic wills, waiving their normal fee, and instead asking clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid. Donations support the vital work of the nine partner charities. The recommended donation for a basic Will Aid will is £95 for a single will and £150 for a pair of mirror wills.
