Taking place across its offices in Angus and Dundee, as well as Fife, Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow, Thorntons’ Charity Wills Month supports local people and organisations within the communities in which it operates. During the month-long campaign, the firm waived fees for any Wills written, and instead asked clients to make an equivalent donation to Cash for Kids.
Audrey Dishington, Wills, Trusts and Succession Planning Partner, said: “Our Charity Wills Campaign is now in its twenty fifth year and it’s great to see it continue to get support from the public as time goes on.
“It’s fantastic to see the generosity of our clients. We are grateful to everyone who has supported this campaign.”
Donations from the campaign all go to Cash for Kids in the Tay, Forth or Clyde area, whichever is closest to where the client lives, which means that children in their local area will benefit directly from the funding.
Carly Mackenzie, Radio Tay Cash for Kids acting charity manager, said: ”In 2021, we supported over 11,000 children who have been affected by poverty and or living with a life-limiting illness or disability.
"The support from Thorntons allows us to ensure we make a real diference. From funding school holiday provisions to a specialised piece of equipment, the donations allow all children to have the same opportunities. We will forever be thankful for the support we receive.”
