£10,000 is now the target for law firm
A legal firm based in Romford has raised almost £3,500 for Saint Francis Hospice in its latest fundraising effort.
Mullis and Peake Solicitors has supported the hospice's annual Make a Will Fortnight initiative, which involves solicitors at the firm providing their services for free to give local people the opportunity to have their wills written in return for a donation to the charity, since it began in 2009.
Trudi Bates, Wills and Probate Paralegal was delighted to present a cheque for £3,448 to the hospice, bringing the total donations received by the firm to date for the Make a Will Fortnight event to an impressive £8,600.
"As corporate members of Saint Francis Hospice, we are really proud to have been involved with Make a Will Fortnight since its inception in 2009," said Trudi.
"This year was a record year for fundraising, raising an astonishing £3,448 for the hospice.
"What's more, we are absolutely thrilled to learn that over the years we have now donated over £8,600 for this wonderful cause.
"We hope to be able to break the £10,000 mark next year!"
Mullis and Peake Solicitors were among a group of 15 local solicitors who participated in this year's Make a Will Fortnight and collectively raised almost £9,000 towards providing care and support for local people and their families living with life-limiting illnesses.
"We are extremely grateful to Mullis and Peake Solicitors for their continued commitment to help make our annual Make a Will Fortnight such a success," said Susan Spencer, Legacy Giving Executive from the hospice.
"The generosity of the solicitors, who give up their time and expertise free of charge, will go a long way to ensure we continue to provide the excellent care and support to everyone in the community who needs it."
