Worthingtons Solicitors

Worthingtons raised vital funds for charity amid Covid-19 crisis

Despite the impact of a global pandemic, our solicitors in the Newtownards office managed to give up some of their time in November last year to take part in Will Aid, an annual charity campaign.

Our participation in the 2020 campaign means that we have been taking part in the scheme for 13 years, and have raised over £25,000.

Nikki McConnell, Partner, said:

“This is a superb initiative which targets the millions of people in the UK who do not have a will and allows them access to a professional to draw up this important document.

“We are glad we could do our bit to help, particularly as it has been such a difficult time for charities and people across Northern Ireland.

“We sincerely hope the donations we have raised will make a difference and help them to continue the vital work they are doing in the UK and overseas.”

Will Aid has raised more than £21 million in donations, and many millions more in pledged legacies, for charity since it launched.

Peter de Vena Franks, campaign director, said:

“Thanks to the amazing commitment of local solicitors that took part in Will Aid 2020, many people will receive life-changing support, and people who used the scheme have gained peace of mind thanks to having a professionally drawn up will.”

“I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Worthingtons for their incredible efforts this year and for their ongoing participation in the scheme.”

Will Aid takes place every November and we will be volunteering our time and expertise again this year

Will Aid donations support nine of the UK’s best-loved charities – ActionAid, Age UK, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save the Children, Sightsavers, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (N. Ireland).

The suggested voluntary donation for a basic Will Aid will is £100 for a single will and £180 for a pair of mirror wills.

We will be following the most up-to-date government health advice to ensure that face-to-face meetings remain safe. We are also able to write wills at a distance via telephone or online consultation, where necessary.
