Norton Peskett supports the Papworth Trust 2016 will campaign
A campaign aimed at encouraging more people to start a will – while raising funds for disabled and older people in their area – has been hailed a success.
The ‘Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way’ campaign was organised by Papworth Trust in conjunction with solicitors across the East of England.
The will-writing service was supported by Norton Peskett’s Halesworth branch which raised £495.
Gavin Chappell-Bates, the charity’s major donor and legacy fundraiser, said: "This is the second year Papworth Trust has run a will-writing campaign and we would like to thank everyone who supported it."
"We were delighted to work with so many solicitors across the East of England and the final total raised from the campaign will make such a difference to the lives of the disabled and older people we support on a daily basis."
Claire Fox, from Norton Peskett, said: "We were only too pleased to support this worthwhile campaign, which has both a fundraising and awareness-raising message at its heart."
