Chesterfield and Sheffield-based solicitors, Banner Jones, has raised more than £1,500 to support the work of Ashgate Hospicecare.

The law firm offered members of the public the opportunity to have their will written or updated free of charge in return for a donation being made to the charity.

The culmination of donations for the free wills month follows on from Banner Jones presenting Ashgate Hospicecare with a cheque for £1,000 following a sponsored walk by the company.

Katie Woodward, head of wills at Banner Jones said: “We’re delighted with the success of the free wills month. Some of the clients who wrote wills through the campaign also left legacies in their wills which is great news for the hospice. Supporting the invaluable work of Ashgate Hospicecare is important to our business.

“It’s also been a fantastic opportunity to help and guide people through the process of writing a will, many of whom had not had one before. A will is such an important document – both in terms of ensuring that your wishes are carried out and making the process of dealing with your estate easier for your family and friends – and it’s therefore great that our latest charity campaign not only benefited such a wonderful cause, but also helped those who so generously donated.”

Josanne Richardson from Ashgate Hospicecare adds: “As the demand for our services grows, so does the need for funding which is why the support that local businesses provide through events such as this is absolutely crucial.

“We have a longstanding relationship with Banner Jones and are so grateful that they continue to support our work with their impressive fundraising efforts – it makes an incredible difference to the lives of so many, both the people that we care for and those closest to them.”
