J&P makes the list of top fundraisers for national charity campaign

Judge & Priestley has been named as one of the top fundraisers in the UK, after taking part in a charity will-writing campaign.

The Private Client team at Judge & Priestley raised £4,590 for the Will Aid scheme after writing wills in exchange for voluntary donations.

This is the eighth year the firm has taken part in the month-long fundraiser and they were the second highest fundraising firm in Kent. Overall the firm has raised a grand total to date of £33,034.

Brian Tan from the firm, said he was thrilled their efforts had made them one of the top fundraisers taking part. “Making a will with a professional solicitor is one of the most important pieces of paperwork a person can complete and yet millions of people put it off. This is just one of a number of reasons why we choose to donate our time for Will Aid. We also understand that every penny raised is reaching some of the most vulnerable individuals world-wide.”

Victoria Friar from Save the Children paid the firm a visit to present them with a certificate to thank them for their achievement. Victoria said: “We want to send our deepest thanks to Judge & Priestley LLP for all their hard work last year. Our vision is of a world where every child has the chance to survive, learn and be safe and with donations from the Will Aid scheme and gifts left to us in wills we can take great strides towards this.”

Will Aid is a charity will-writing scheme that raises money for charities including: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save The Children, Sightsavers, Age UK, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland).

Peter de Vena Franks, campaign director, said: “I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Judge & Priestley LLP for their incredible efforts this year and over the course of the past eight years.”
