Lawyers at a Worcester law firm have raised over £3,800 for local hospice as part of a Will-writing drive.
mfg Solicitors recently offered its services for free in support of St Richard’s Hospice’s ‘Write a Will’ month – an initiative aimed at encouraging people to realise the importance of planning for the future.
Amanda Piper, an Associate and Head of the Firm’s Elderly Care and Court of Protection team at mfg Solicitors, said: “We were delighted to have raised so much money for St Richard’s Hospice.
“This is the sixth year we have been running this initiative with the team at St Richard’s Hospice and over that period we have raised almost £22,000 for the charity. That’s all thanks to the support from people across Worcester and beyond.”
Write a Will month continues to be a hugely popular annual initiative with people across Worcester and the surrounding area as it gives them the opportunity to have their will professionally prepared for a discounted cost.
Ria Simons, St Richard’s Hospice Corporate Fundraiser, added: “Through the kindness of mfg Solicitors we are able to raise more money to continue offering our services for free to patients and their families.
“We depend on donations and legacies from generous supporters to raise the millions of pounds we need every year to provide our services.”
