Our Private Client team in our Herne Bay office offered their time and expertise for free for a week in October to make and update Wills in return for a donation to Strode Park Foundation. In total, they raised £1850 for this inspiring Kent charity which has a significant presence in Herne as well as homes in Canterbury, Faversham and Rainham.
This is the first time that Strode Park have held a Will writing week and Karen Jeal, Fundraising, Marketing and PR Manager at Strode Park Foundation said: “This partnership has proved really successful and we can’t thank Girlings enough not only for their expertise and assistance in making our first Will Week with them happen, but for their continued support of Strode Park Foundation as a whole. The amount raised really is amazing and will be vital in helping us provide the services we do here for children and adults with disabilities.”
Charlotte Nock, Private Client said “We are delighted with the money that has been raised from Girlings Solicitors and Strode Park Foundation Will week. It is so good to know that our clients have walked away with professionally drafted Wills whilst their donations made in lieu of our time spent drafting will go to a worthy local charity and directly benefit those helped by Strode Park Foundation.”
All the money donated will go directly to Strode Park Foundation to provide vital care, support services, care at home and supported living opportunities for children and adults with a range of disabilities.
If you would like to discuss making a Will, contact a member of Girlings' Private Client team who would be happy to assist.
