Hunt & Coombs Solicitors raise over £5000.00 for Charity

During November 2013, Hunt & Coombs Solicitors in Huntingdon raised a staggering £5052.00 through 'Will Aid' where participants donated money to charity in return for a free Will.

Some 1,500 law firms from across the UK took part in Will Aid raising approximately £2 million for 9 of the UK’s leading charities. Clients gave generously, and with the suggested donation still much less than the actual cost of a Will, they were able to receive an expertly prepared Will from Hunt & Coombs’ probate Lawyer Richard Lane.

The final amount raised of £5052.00 was confirmed last week and the money raised will be shared by nine of the UK's best known charities all of whom work to transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world: ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).

“Being involved with Will Aid has certainly been a rewarding experience" said Richard, ‘We were very pleased to take part in the scheme as not only did it raise funds for good causes but it emphasised the need to make Wills. It gave an opportunity to many who wanted to make Wills but had not got around to it before. We also had the additional practice support from the Peterborough head office so despite the demand we didn’t have to turn a single person away. I would like to say a huge thank you to our clients for taking part and for helping to make a difference to the lives of many children and families around the world”
