Fergusson Law has raised over £1,800 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign which asks solicitors to write wills for local people and instead of paying a fee, asks only for a voluntary donation.
Fergusson Law has taken part in the annual Will Aid scheme and raised £1,870 in the month-long fundraiser.
Janice Nisbet, from the firm, commented: “Our team have been delighted to take part in Will Aid and have worked very hard. We were able to encourage lots of local people to have their wills written, which too many people put off until it is too late and at the same time supporting 9 well-loved charities. We are happy to donate our time towards Will Aid. It is a great way of generating a link with the community. We would recommend that other law firms get involved."
Stephen Gillies from the British Red Cross paid the firm a visit to present them with a certificate. He said: “We are very grateful to Fergusson Law and the Will Aid scheme for this generous contribution. The Red Cross uses donations to reach people in crisis, here in the UK and all around the world.”
Will Aid, which is celebrating its 30th year since launching, is a charity will-writing scheme that raises money for 9 wonderful charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save The Children, Sightsavers, Age UK, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland).
“I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Fergusson Law and let them know that thanks to them, lives will change for the better and people who need it will continue to receive the help and support that the charities work so hard to provide.”
