Solicitors in Retford have helped raise funds for nine popular charities by participating in a Will Aid scheme.
Dean Thomas & Co of Grove Street and Jones & Co of Cannon Square both waived their usual fees for writing a will during Will Aid month, and invited their clients to donate to charity.
The nationwide campaign has raised more than £2 million in donations, with a further £10 million being pledged to Will Aid in the wills written.
Chris Millward, chair of Will Aid, said. “Will Aid has made a real difference for 25 years – both to the work of the charities we’ve supported and to the people our participating solicitors have helped to make a will.”
“I would like to thank all the solicitors and will-makers in this area who took part.”
“It is a great achievement to have raised this enormous sum in just a few weeks.”
