Back in October, Farleys’ private client team signed up to the East Lancashire Hospice Will Scheme, a campaign asking local solicitors to donate their time to draft basic wills in return for a donation to the charity.
East Lancashire Hospice has been supporting people with life-limiting illnesses across Blackburn, Darwen, Accrington and Clitheroe, for over 35 years. The hospice relies on individual fundraisers, organisations and corporate sponsors to raise the funds they need to operate every day.
All donations have now been received and we are pleased to have raised a total of £1,000 for the hospice from our generous clients.
Leanne Green of East Lancashire Hospice commented,
“We are extremely grateful to receive support from Farleys Solicitors once again for our Will Week campaign. We want to thank all those who made a Will and a donation to East Lancashire Hospice during the campaign, your support is needed more than ever.
“This past year has been extremely difficult for many of us and we are overwhelmed by the support we have received to help us carry on caring for our patients when they need it most.”
Phil Taylor, Partner in Farleys’ private client team added,
“We were delighted to have been able to support East Lancashire Hospice with their will scheme. We know it has been a challenging year, particularly for charities whose fundraising has been impacted by numerous lockdowns and government restrictions.
“In a time where more and more people are looking to update their wills and create new ones in order to provide for their families, should the worst happen, we were happy to offer our time in exchange for these vital funds for East Lancashire Hospice. We would like to thank our clients for their donations.”
