So much good will at solicitors


A solicitors firm raised more than £4,000 through a charity will-writing scheme.

Motley & Hope in Biggleswade raised £4,618.75 by taking part in the Will Aid programme.

The UK’s leading charity will-writing scheme offers everyone the chance to make or update a will free of charge, in exchange for a donation to charity.

The money is shared between nine leading charities, including ActionAid, Age UK, the British Red Cross, Christian Aid, the NSPCC and Save the Children.

As part of the campaign Motley & Hope drew up 52 basic wills for Chronicle Country clients without charging the usual fee.

In return for the service clients made a donation to Will Aid.

Teresa McCutcheon of Motley & Hope, based in Shortmead Street said: “We had a very busy and successful campaign again this year, the third year we have supported the scheme.

“I really enjoyed meeting many new local clients and I would like to thank those who took part, donated so generously and made our fundraising efforts such a success.”

She added: “We are particularly proud to have been involved with Will Aid’s 25th anniversary campaign and to have been able to contribute such a healthy sum.”

The scheme will run again in November and will provide the opportunity for many more people in need of a will to take part.

They can take care of their affairs and at the same time contribute to some of the UK’s best-loved charities.
