Bury St. Edmunds law firm Greene & Greene Solicitors has been supporting ‘Wills Weeks’ in aid of St. Nicholas Hospice Care since 2011.
As an alternative to charging a fee for the service, legal advisers ask for a donation to the Hospice. In the past 8 years Greene & Greene has received donations totalling £35,831. With a Gift Aid top-up from HMRC of £7,542.75, the final amount raised totals an astonishing £43,373.75 thanks to the generous contributions of clients and the hard work of the Private Client team at the firm.
Trusts & Estates Practitioner, Martine Swaep said, “We offer 25 appointments during Wills Weeks and they are all booked well in advance of the cut-off date with a significant number of people opting to join a waiting list should a late cancellation become available. We are astounded once again by the generosity of our clients and grateful for their continued support of such a worthy cause”.
On being presented with this year’s donations, St. Nicholas Hospice Care’s Legacy Officer Nick Duncan said “Once again this year the Private Client team at Greene & Greene has worked hard to secure a remarkably generous level of Wills Weeks donations from their clients which enables us to continue our support of people with long-term and life-limiting conditions entirely free of charge. We value very much Greene & Greene’s commitment to us and we are both humbled and delighted to note the extent of their and their clients’ contributions over the years. Long may they continue!”
