Will Team raise money for Charity

Our Wills and Probate department, namely Linda Rees, Davina Cole and Jonathan Edwards are delighted to announce that they have raised £6,240 for charity, by writing Wills for local clients as part of November 2011’s Will Aid campaign. Will Aid clients were offered a basic Will and ask to make a donation instead of paying the firm’s usual fees. The money raised is shared by Actionaid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCIAF, Sightsavers and Trocaire.

The team first participated in Will Aid last year when they raised £2,500. This brings their grand total to almost £9,000. The funds raised are being put to work by the Will Aid charities to make a real and immediate difference to the lives of the people in need in the UK and all over the world.

Jonathan Edwards, Legal Assistant said:
“People want to protect their nearest and dearest after they have gone. Will Aid provided an opportunity to do that while raising money for a wide range of causes. We’re grateful for all the clients who took the opportunity to participate”

Will Aid campaign manager Shirley Marsland said:
“This is such great news! The Will Aid charities are so grateful for the generosity and hard work of the team at Terry Jones Solicitors. This has been the most successful campaign to date and overall we expect to raise over £2 million. The Will Aid charities will be able to put the money raised to immediate use.”

Christian Aid's Legacies Officer, Alison Linwood, said:
"The support of Terry Jones Solicitors is greatly appreciated by Christian Aid. Will Aid is very important to Christian Aid as not only do we receive a significant amount in donations but the campaign also provides an opportunity for people to leave Christian Aid a legacy. Legacy gifts are crucial in enabling our work to eradicate poverty and change the systems and structures which cause it. Legacies of all sizes are incredibly valuable to Christian Aid – last year our income from legacies could have more than paid for all our work in Latin America and the Caribbean.”
