WJM INVERNESS RAISES THOUSANDS OF POUNDS FOR CHARITY

Nine UK charities are set to benefit from donations by Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP in Inverness, bringing the total raised by WJM and MacArthur & Co, which merged with WJM last year, to over £20,000.

WJM raised £2,740 by donating the fees raised in 2016 from writing Wills on behalf of clients living in Inverness to Will Aid, which disburses the funds amongst the nine UK charities. This is in addition to £17,937 which was raised by MacArthur & Co prior to their merger with WJM last year.

WJM Private Client Partner, Ian Macdonald, said: “Our firm has embraced Will Aid with great enthusiasm.  We are able to provide a high level of service to the local community and clients are very happy to donate to charity. Making a will means loved ones you leave behind know that you have given your affairs some thought.”

The nine charities benefiting are ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland). The recommended donation for a basic Will Aid will is £95 for a single will and £150 for a pair of mirror wills.
