Anna Rzemieniecka, Community Legacy Manager at the British Red Cross visited our Woodley office last week to present a certificate after we raised £4,315 under the Will Aid Scheme over the course of 2017. David Roper and Rubiah Athar drafted a number of wills under the scheme, whereby clients are asked to make a voluntary donation to charity in return for a professional preparing their wills. The scheme gives clients the opportunity to donate vital funds to charities whilst being assured that their wills reflect what they would like to happen to their assets.

Will Aid work with nine different charities, including Save the Children, Age UK and the British Red Cross and have raised around £16 million since they began in 1988. Further information about the Will Aid scheme can be found at www.willaid.org.uk.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients who donated under the Will Aid scheme.
