Manchester solicitors called on to help combat ongoing crises

  • 27/04/2023

Solicitors in Manchester are being encouraged to support some of the country’s most beloved charities as part of an annual campaign.

The popular Will Aid campaign is returning this November, when participating firms waive their fees for basic will writing services in return for a voluntary donation to Will Aid.

The Will Aid team is working hard behind the scenes ahead of the 2023 campaign and are urging solicitors to sign up now, with demand again set to be incredibly high.

The scheme has raised over £24million for its nine partner charities since 1988, many of which are currently responding to the catastrophic earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

Participating solicitors regularly see Will Aid customers return for additional services and have been recognised in both the local and national press for their services.

Record-breaking firm Taylor Bracewell has raised more than £200k for the campaign since 2011 – making them the highest donors of all time.

Celebrity supporters include national treasure Dame Judi Dench, while Will Aid is regularly highlighted by finance guru Martin Lewis on his TV and radio shows.

Participating firms are also supported by a multi-award winning PR team to help maximise their publicity opportunities.

Peter de Vena Franks, Will Aid Campaign Director, said: “Once again our charities are facing an incredibly high demand for their services.

“Be it responding to natural disasters, humanitarian crises or the problems we face here in the UK – their services are of vital importance.

“We are expecting an incredibly busy year and I would implore firms across the country to take part and help make a real difference in transforming lives.”

The suggested donation for a basic will is £100, or £180 for a pair of basic mirror wills.

When making their wills through Will Aid, many people choose to leave a gift to causes close to their hearts.  These vital gifts are critical to securing the future funding of many charities, and millions in donations to our partner charities have been pledged so far in Will Aid wills.
