Free Wills and LPA Advice Seminar in January

wills
Join us for one of our ever-popular free Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney talks on 26th and 27th January to ensure that you're set for the future.Over half of people in the UK currently do not have a Will and this can lead to unfortunate difficulties upon death. Your assets may not pass to whom you want to inherit, leaving your loved ones in financial stress and hardship. It also can be time-consuming and expensive to resolve. In order to ensure your affairs are in order, we recommend that you prepare a Will. In addition to this, over 850,000 people in the UK have Dementia; this figure has been estimated to rise to 1 million in 2025. Dementia can lead to your loved one being unable to make their own decisions regarding their financial affairs. By setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney now, you are able to nominate a person (your Attorney) to make decisions on your behalf in the future if you become unable to.

Ensure that your affairs are in order to minimise stress for your family before and after your death. Join one of our free events to hear a short presentation about the different types of Will and LPA, and get some free tailored advice from one of our solicitors over a tea or coffee afterwards.

Due to popular demand, we have added a further date in February.

Pinney Talfourd hosts ‘Cocktails at Christmas’

Cocktails-at-Christmas---Teaser

Last week Pinney Talfourd opened its doors to host a festive evening for clients and contacts alike – ‘Cocktails at Christmas’.

With the Christmas period fully in swing, we decided to host a drinks evening with a twist, inviting two of the most decorated flair bartenders in the UK to tantalise our guests’ taste buds with a curated selection of festive cocktails, including ‘The Caliente’ – a fiery vodka concoction with a bird’s eye chilli garnish, and a classic Champagne Cocktail.

 

Whilst people were sipping their drinks, the bartenders sprang into action, whipping the crowd into a frenzy with their fantastic display of tricks. A delicious selection of canapés provided by The Station Pantry were served up, perfectly complementing the cocktails that were on offer during the evening.

A wonderful evening was had by all, and it certainly paved the way for what is sure to be a fantastic Christmas and New Year for all of Pinney Talfourd, our clients and contacts.

A Festive Favour by Corbets Tey School

Corbets-Tey-School
The children of Corbets Tey School recently took part in a competition to design Pinney Talfourd's 2017 corporate Christmas card. We take a look at the winning design.

Pinney Talfourd teamed up with local special needs school Corbets Tey School for their ‘Design a Christmas Card 2017’ Competition earlier this month.

Every child in the school was asked to design a cheerful and festive picture using their favourite art materials. The entries were then collected and Pinney Talfourd's Christmas Committee chose their favourites in a judging session over mince pies. The variety of designs was a delight to view and included handprint paintings, computer-aided designs and traditional colour pencil drawings. Some classes had chosen to go sparkly and the staff (and room) were covered with glitter and sequins by the end of the judging session.

Arham Pervin, aged 4 won first prize with a cute design of Rudolph surrounded by festive fairy lights. It has been used to create Pinney Talfourd’s Christmas card and Arham will receive a toy of his choice at a special school assembly on the last day of school term.

The Residents’ Association of Upminster and Cranham support this project every year and their community magazine The Bulletin sponsored the runner-up Sammy Ksaveriev, aged 8 for his jolly Santa picture.

Shareen Lewis won third place and will also receive toy of her choice as a reward for her efforts.

Santa Comes Early - Children's Christmas Party

Childrens-Christmas-Party
Christmas certainly came early for many people this weekend, with the annual children’s festive party taking place at the Upminster office of Pinney Talfourd.

This weekend’s snowfall gave a perfectly Christmassy backdrop to our annual children’s Christmas party. Even with the snowflakes falling aplenty, Santa and his elves managed to arrive promptly at 11am and were greeted by many excited children and their parents. Santa quickly took up residence in his grotto, built especially for him on the eve before by the administration team.

Whilst the children waited eagerly to meet the big man, the elves amused them all with Christmassy games, singing and dancing. Some of the parents even got into the Christmas spirit and joined in on the festivities!

Could not load widget with the id 134.

A party lunch was enjoyed by all, including Santa, before he jumped back in his sleigh, elves in tow, and flew back to the North Pole just after 1pm. Whilst the wintery flurries, unfortunately, kept some families away, it was still a great success and a wonderful time was had by all.

Christmas at the Queen's – Over £2K Raised for Charity!

1---News-Article-Image---Christmas-Carols
Pinney Talfourd once again teamed up with Queen's Theatre Hornchurch and Dawn Chorus for a Christmas concert and raised over £2,000 for charity!

Last Friday saw Pinney Talfourd and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch open the doors for their annual charity Christmas carol concert, ‘Christmas at the Queen’s’ – a lively and festive singalong event for the whole community. The fantastic local choir Dawn Chorus, led by Paul Rhodes, joined us to please the crowd with a series of upbeat Christmas songs including “Let It Snow” and “Merry Christmas Everyone” before enjoying tea and mince pies with the Mayor of Havering, Cllr Linda Van Den Hende.

This year also saw the Year 5 and 6 Choir of Benhurst Primary School join in on the festivities, belting out a number of merry songs which got the entire audience up on their feet and singing along.

This was a free event, but the charity raffle and generous donations from members of the community raised an incredible £2,284.32 in aid of the Queen's Theatre charitable trust and Pinney Talfourd’s own charity of the year, SNAP (Special Needs and Parents). Local businesses rallied to support the event by donating some fabulous prizes, ranging from champagne, restaurant vouchers, two tickets to see Mariah Carey in concert and even a luxury £500 Harrods Christmas hamper! Funds raised are divided equally between the two charities.

This event has attracted a full house every year, and this year was no different. Local businesses, Councillors and members of the local community checked in for this festive celebration.

Teas, coffees and mince pies were on offer courtesy of Pinney Talfourd after the event to refresh those vocal chords, providing an opportunity to meet new faces and make new friends. Thank you as always to the Queen's Theatre Club volunteers who helped to serve refreshments.

Charity Danceathon – £5,000 Raised for SNAP!

Charity Danceathon – £5,000 Raised for SNAP!
This weekend saw the biggest charity event so far this year commence at Pinney Talfourd – a 24-hour Danceathon in support of SNAP!

At 12 noon on Saturday 21st October, three of our Family Solicitors – Catherine Loadman, Sue Nash and Lucy Birch – limbered up for the last time before embarking on their mammoth 24-hour challenge, all in support of our Charity of the Year, SNAP (Special Needs and Parents).

A whole host of colleagues, contacts, family members and friends joined forces to spur them on for the first few hours of the dancing challenge, with songs chosen by them and the wider public as part of Pinney’s Playlist Picks.

The Danceathon spilled out onto the streets of Upminster, with many members of the public coming over to donate and pass on words of encouragement to our three dancing divas; some of them even got in on the action and joined in for a boogie!

As the day turned into night and the streets started to empty, the ladies continued their immense task in the boardroom.

At 5am, they brought themselves back downstairs into our main reception to greet the morning crowd with some fantastic singalong songs (and the dance moves to match!) All throughout this time, their efforts were being live-streamed onto our Facebook page, with hundreds of people sending their good wishes and support, as well as donating to this fantastic cause.
