Gosschalks raises over £3k for Will Aid 2015

Our Wills and Probate team is thrilled to announce that, as of 6th January 2016, it helped raise £3,210 for Will Aid during November’s campaign.

Headed by Partner Stephen Walker, the Wills and Probate team volunteered their time and skills to write a grand total of 29 wills for local people in November. These included 10 single and 19 joint wills.

Stephen comments:

“During a year when many firms of solicitors, for various reasons, decided not to support Will Aid, Gosschalks have continued to raise money for charity, and to spread the word amongst clients that one of the best things they can do for their family is make a will.

“We’re thrilled to have raised this money for the charities, and grateful to Will Aid for the chance to lend our support again.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank my staff for their hard work, and our clients for their generous donations in November.”

Will Aid Campaign Director, Peter de Vena Franks, said:

“Thank you again so much for the support you gave Will Aid 2015. The participating charities pass on their gratitude also for the valuable help you have given their much-needed work.”

By writing wills for local people without charging the usual fee, the money raised is shared between the nine Will Aid charities: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland).

The donations will provide vital funds to help people build their communities and improve their future in the UK and around the world.

The 2015 campaign has raised over £700,000 in total so far for good causes, and is expected to surpass £1m.
