Pinney Talfourd were pleased to participate once again in ‘Make a Will Fortnight’ in aid of Saint Francis Hospice.
The pro bono charitable scheme ran during June with the Private Client team donating their time free of charge to write Wills for clients who in return made a charitable donation to the Hospice. Donations came in over the summer and a total of £1,025 was raised.Matthew Edwards, Head of the Private Client department, commented on the success of the campaign: “It is estimated that 60% of adults have not made a Will so this charitable initiative gave the incentive many people needed to make a Will and in the process make a worthwhile charitable donation. We would like to thank all of our clients who participated and contributed so generously”.
Saint Francis Hospice opened its doors over 30 years ago and is one of the largest adult hospices in the UK serving Havering, Brentwood, Barking, Dagenham, Redbridge and West Essex. As an independent charity, Saint Francis Hospice is reliant on voluntary donations and that is why campaigns like ‘Make a Will Fortnight’ are so important. This year Saint Francis Hospice requires £7.9 million to enable them to continue their excellent work offering specialist care and support to individuals and their family.
