London and Surrey-based solicitors Mackrell Turner Garrett have raised more than £1,000 for charity after taking part in Will Aid’s 25th Anniversary Make a Will Month.

As part of Will Aid, the solicitors drafted hundreds of Wills and asked their clients for donations throughout November.

The money raised is shared by Actionaid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, SCIAF, Sightsavers and Trocaire.

In the past three years Mackrell Turner Garrett has raised more than £13,000 by drafting around 170 Wills for clients. This enormous sum is making a real and lasting difference to the lives of those people in the UK and all over the world helped by the Will Aid charities.

This year, the firm also took part in the Marie Curie wills campaign, which saw the firm draft simple free wills in return for a donation to the cancer charity.

Managing Partner Nigel Rowley, said: “We were once again proud to take part in Will Aid and thanks to the generosity of our clients raise so much for good causes.

“Will Aid is a fantastic campaign which encourages people to make a will as well as raising money for charity.

“November was a rewarding month, and we were delighted to give up our time and expertise to help all the worthwhile Will Aid charities.”

He added: “Lawyers are not always well known for their charitable giving. The Will Aid scheme has been an excellent resource enabling us to give our time, energy and expertise in return for charitable donations.”
