Judge & Priestley Honoured for Pledging to Beat Cancer

Judge & Priestley Solicitors has been offering Cancer Research UK’s Free Will Service to people aged 18 and over for the past 9 years, giving guidance and support to those wishing to write a Will or update an existing one.

David Chandra said: “We’re honoured to have been recognised by Cancer Research UK in this way. Many of us at the firm have friends or family who have been affected by cancer. Together with clients’ pledges and ours, we are beating cancer for future generations”.

Gifts in Wills fund over a third of the charity’s life-saving research. Without them, Cancer Research UK would not be able to undertake the vital research that will one day beat cancer.

Clare Moore, Director of Legacies at Cancer Research UK, said: “We all reach a stage at some point in our lives where we start to look ahead and consider what will happen to our financial affairs in the future, when we may no longer be around.

“Our Free Will Service is provided without obligation and we are grateful to Judge & Priestley Solicitors, for the expertise and sensitivity they show in providing clear information and guidance to help people make the best choices for them. 

“By combining dedication with the highest professional standards, Judge & Priestley Solicitors has facilitated over £5,181,775 worth of legacy gifts, which will help our scientists, doctors and nurses to beat cancer sooner.”
