Erin will be abseiling down the side of one of the South Coast's most famous land mark; fundraising for the Stroke Association and raising awareness of lasting powers of attorney.
'I work in the Private Client department of QualitySolicitors Large & Gibson advising clients on powers of attorney. A stroke can be a life changing event but often completely unexpected and ill prepared for. Where you might think nothing of taking out contents insurance in case of a burglary, very few make provision for the risk of a time, when you are are no longer able to manage your affairs own your own. A time maybe where you cannot manage daily tasks and to make decisions; from running minor errands, like getting to the post office, to more major decisions, about investments, care fees or where to live'.
Making a lasting power of attorney is effectively an insurance for that very type of situation.
So why the Stroke Association?
'Stroke changes lives- not just the stroke patient but all those who care about them and support them. I know first hand how much of a difference an organisation like the Stroke Association can make to those affected by Stroke'.
