Livingstone Brown raises over £13,000 for charity in 10 years
Glasgow firm Livingstone Brown has celebrated raising over £13,000 for charity in its tenth year of participation in the annual Will Aid campaign.
The firm has written more than 250 wills for people in exchange for a voluntary donation since it first signed up to the scheme.
Director Julia Donnelly said: “We have really enjoyed taking part in the Will Aid campaign during the last 10 years and are absolutely delighted to have reached the significant milestone of raising £13,344 since joining the campaign.
“Will Aid is a superb initiative which targets the many Britons without a will as well as helping nine incredible charities.”
Will Aid has raised more than £21 million in donations, and many millions more in pledged legacies, for the nine partner charities since it launched in 1988.
Jon Jacques, chair of Will Aid, said: “We are very grateful to all the solicitors who give their time to write wills and all those that have made a will and given a donation, for their generous support.
“The nine partner charities use these donations and legacies left by will makers to transform the lives of people in need, both here in the UK and all around the world.”
Peter de Vena Franks, campaign director, said: “Thanks to the commitment of local solicitors that took part in Will Aid 2019, many people both in the UK and abroad will receive life-changing support, and local people who used the scheme have gained peace of mind thanks to having a professionally drawn up will.
“I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Livingstone Brown for their incredible efforts.”
