WJM DUNBLANE SUPPORTS CHARITIES IMPACTED BY PANDEMIC FOR ANOTHER YEAR
WJM Dunblane has signed up to a charity will-writing campaign for another year to help nine of the UK’s best-loved charities bounce back from the pandemic.
This year is the 20th campaign they have supported for Will Aid, which takes place every November.
In total, the office has raised £55,217 for the campaign’s nine partner charities and is aiming to make this year their best yet.
Partner Beth Hamilton said: “We’re very proud to offer our support to Will Aid for another year, for us it was an easy decision.
“The scheme provides people with a perfect opportunity to get a professionally written will, therefore ensuring their wishes are protected when they die.
“Additionally, it allows us to support nine important causes, whose finances have been impacted greatly as a result of the coronavirus.”
Will Aid takes place every November and sees participating solicitors waive the fee for writing a basic will and instead ask clients to make a voluntary donation to the campaign.
Last year, the generosity of solicitors and members of the public raised more than £655,000 for the nine partner charities: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland).
