Cash for Kids receives £75,000 donation from Thorntons

Thorntons has raised £75,000 for Cash for Kids through its Charity Wills initiative – a £13,000 increase on the previous year.

Now in its 23rd year, Thorntons’ Charity Wills month takes place across its offices in Fife, Dundee, Perth, Angus and 2019 marked the first year for Edinburgh’s involvement. To date the campaign has raised more than £450,000 for Cash for Kids.

The initiative ran throughout the month of September and for any wills written during this time, the firm did not charge a fee – instead clients were asked to make an equivalent donation to Cash for Kids.

Murray Etherington, partner at Thorntons, said: “Creating and updating a Will should be a consideration for adults in Scotland especially if you own valuable assets such as property or have young children. We’ve been delighted with the generosity of clients who took this opportunity to put their affairs in order and support local causes at the same time.

“It’s fantastic to see our Charity Wills initiative gain momentum every year with the latest campaign marking a milestone fundraising total for the firm. The beneficiaries linked to Radio Tay and Radio Forth’s Cash for Kids allows us to support groups and individuals within the communities in which our offices are situated.”

Victoria Hendry, Cash for Kids charity manager, said: “The support of Thorntons’ clients is overwhelming. The team at Radio Forth’s Cash for Kids would like to extend their thanks to the clients and staff of Thorntons for supporting the charity and making such a difference to children living right on our doorstep.”
