As a member of the QualitySolicitors nationwide network of law firms, we're once again joining forces with Barnardo’s this October and this year our campaign includes...
A Special Event, which takes place at 10.30am, on 25 October 2017, at Normanby Hall, Normanby, North Lincolnshire, DN15 9HU.
This free event will provide a fascinating insight into the important work of Barnardo’s and explore the many ways you can support the charity and one of the ways you can get involved is through the partnership’s award-winning Will Scheme.
If you are over 55, you can have a professionally written Will* created, at no cost to yourself. All we ask is that you consider leaving a gift in your Will to Barnardo’s.
Space is limited, so don’t delay - click here to book your place, or telephone 07740 500963!
Victoria Norman, our Partner and Head of the Wills & Probate Department for QualitySolicitors Bradbury Roberts & Raby, will be at Normanby Hall on the day to talk about the importance of having your affairs in order, in the event you were to pass away unexpectedly. For example, did you know that if you die without having made a Will (intestate), your assets would be distributed in accordance with UK law, which may not be as you would wish?
Victoria will be joined at the event by Associate Solicitor, Sarah Inman, and says they are both looking forward to meeting guests and adds:
“We’re delighted to be able to enhance our usual Will Month activity and co-host such a unique celebration of Barnardo’s in this prestigious well known venue. We’d love people to come and see us on 25 October, learn where fundraising really goes and find out more about what to consider when making a Will. As the QualitySolicitors member firm for North Lincolnshire, we’re extremely proud to promote the increasingly popular Barnardo’s Will Scheme every year; it’s a great opportunity for clients to ensure that their wishes are carried out free of charge and, at the same time, hopefully make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children.”
Barnardos has been the QualitySolicitors network’s official charity partner since 2010 and benefits hugely from legacy donations each year and every gift contributes directly to creating a better future for a vulnerable child in the UK.
Since the partnership began in 2010, over 3000 people have been kind enough to remember Barnardo’s in their Will. This exceptional achievement has generated a phenomenal £15M in estimated future income, that will help to secure the vital work of Barnardo’s for many years to come.
The partnership’s Will Month sees Barnardo’s and QualitySolicitors member firms across the country host a wealth of events and fundraising activities and its innovative Will Scheme plays a key part in the campaign.
Now in its fifth successive year, the Will Scheme recently beat off stiff competition from high profile national charities, winning the award for the Best Legacy or In-Memoriam Campaign 2017, from the Institute of Fundraising.
But don’t worry if you can’t attend the event - you can still take advantage of the Will Scheme and help a vulnerable child, all year year round, by contacting our Wills & Probate Team on 01724 854000.
