South Yorkshire solicitors Wosskow Brown have raised more than £7,700 for charity by writing 125 wills.

The firm, which has branches in Sheffield and Barnsley, took part in the Will Aid campaign, where people can make or update their will in return for a donation to help others in need.

Ruth Tormey of Christian Aid, which is one of the charities which benefits from Will Aid, said: “The support of Wosskow Brown Solicitors is greatly appreciated by Christian Aid.

“Will Aid is very important to Christian Aid as not only do we receive a significant amount in donations but the campaign also provides an opportunity for people to leave Christian Aid a legacy.

“Legacies of all sizes are incredibly valuable to Christian Aid – last year our income from legacies could have more than paid for all our work in Latin America and the Caribbean – making a lasting difference to thousands of lives.”

In total, Wosskow Brown has raised over £13,300 for Will Aid over the course of three campaigns.

Emilda Eaton, Partner and Head of Private Client Department, said: “We are proud to be involved and to have raised so much money. It is wonderful to raise awareness of the need for people to write a Will and to support charity at the same time.”

The scheme runs again in November.
