Foster Harrington Solicitors Honoured by Cancer Research UK
Foster Harrington Solicitors on Park Street in Camberley were proud to receive a gold award from Cancer Research UK after facilitating over £1million from clients pledging a gift in their will for the charity, using the popular Free Will Service.
Avril Turner of Foster Harrington was presented with a gold certificate to acknowlege the firms ongoing support. The firm have been offering the Free Will Service to people aged 55 and over in Camberley for many years, which allows simple wills to be made or updated for free, funded by Cancer Research UK. As part of the service, Foster Harrington gives guidance for those wishing to leave a gift in their will to the charity.
Gifts in Wills fund over a third of Cancer Research UKs life-saving research explains Clare Moore, Director of Legacies at the charity. Were so grateful to Foster Harrington Solicitors for supporting Cancer Research UK in our will writing partnership. The generosity of people using the service every year makes a huge impact to our research.
By offering the scheme, Foster Harrington have become well informed about our work and are very supportive of our life-saving research. Whenever their clients express a desire to support Cancer Research UK, Foster Harrington staff act with great sensitivity to explain the different options so individuals and families can make the right choice for their circumstances.
Cancer Research UK has played a role in developing 8 out 10 of the worlds top cancer drugs, with gifts in wills making a significant contribution to what we can achieve. Its quite astonishing to think that by simply combining enthusiasm with the highest professional standards Foster Harrington has helped secure over £1 million worth of legacy gifts, which will go a long way towards helping our scientists, doctors and nurses to beat cancer sooner.
There is not an obligation to leave a gift when using the Free Will Service, but the vast majority of people choose to leave a gift and participating solicitors like Foster Harrington Solicitors help advise clients on this and every aspect of the will-writing process to ensure they have a valid and up-to-date will that fits their circumstances.
