What our solicitors say about Will Aid
Tilly, Bailey & Irvine
Over the years Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors in Teeside have raised over £27,000 for the Will Aid charities. Carolyn Tilly says “ Will Aid is the catalyst that brings new clients to us to make their Will. We plan to continue supporting Will Aid in the future as it is so popular and we are proud to have raised so much.
Spence and Horne Solicitors, Hackney
Spence & Horne Solicitors were eager to take part in Will Aid month because we are a part of the community in Hackney.
Through Will Aid month we have been able to build strong working links with the local hospitals, local hospices and local community groups- thereby providing Spence & Horne Solicitors with the opportunity to serve the residents and workers of Hackney
Will Aid clients were really relaxed, knew it was for a good cause and were really patient. They appreciated we were doing something for charity and came back with other work. And at the end, when the question was "who do I make the cheque payable to?" and you were saying "to Will Aid" they were impressed. They were surprised and I think they were all pleased.
Martin Shepherd LLP
Martin Shepherd Solicitors have taken part in Will Aid since it was launched. We are delighted to be one of the top fundraising firms in the country. It has also been good for business - Will Aid clients have come back to us for further work and we also receive referrals as they recommend us to their friends and family.
"Solicitors who don’t use the opportunity of taking part are missing a trick. We have attracted hundreds of new clients over the years and when they need a solicitor they now think of us first! It’s hard work - I have seen Will Aid clients at 7am – but definitely worthwhile when we see how much we have raised for the charities"
The scheme has generated such a positive response amongst clients old and new. Many clients commented they had put off making or updating their Will but the thought of helping the Will Aid charities had given them an incentive to come and see us. We are very proud of what the firm has achieved for charitable causes so far and hope to continue to raise more money in future campaigns.
