BBLaw tops table with £12k fundraising total

A leading North West law firm which waived its legal fees for preparing wills for their clients in return for a donation to charity, has topped the region’s Will Aid fundraising table with a total of over £12,000.

Staff at Birchall Blackburn Law prepared over 200 Wills during Will Aid month, a national charity initiative involving law firms from across the country.

The sum raised of nearly £13,000 in donations with gift aid, places the law firm at the very top of the North West Will Aid fundraising table and third nationally.

The funds raised will be split equally between nine UK charities including; Age UK, British Red Cross and The NSPCC.

Rosanne Dick from NSPCC visited the firm to thank the team for its commitment surrounding the campaign. She said: “The NSPCC would like to thank Birchall Blackburn Law on behalf of the many thousands of vulnerable children who we help every year.
“By generously giving up time to participate in the Will Aid scheme, the firm has helped The NSPCC to continue its vital work to help and protect children.”
Birchall Blackburn Law’s service was so popular that the firm extended the scheme for another month to fit in all the clients who wished to take part.
Partner at Birchall Blackburn Law, Cathy McCracken, said: “We have participated in four consecutive Will Aid campaigns and our success in previous years motivated us to pull out all the stops.
“To be recognised as the top donating firm is an amazing achievement for the firm and the Private Client team. The amount raised is testament to the hard work of our team who went above and beyond the call of duty by working long hours and late nights to fit in all the appointments with our clients.”
The national scheme runs again in November this year and will give many more people the chance to make a will whilst supporting the UK’s leading charities.
